Kate Tiedemann School of Business and Finance

Kate Tiedemann School of Business and Finance

The Kate Tiedemann School of Business and Finance (KTSBF) is the home for all the finance programs across all three USF campuses and the online MBA program. The school is grounded in student success, thought leadership and community engagement. Our academic programs embrace the philosophy of a foundational education, experiential application of knowledge and a commitment to student professional development. Our faculty conduct cutting-edge research in finance and related areas with significant impact on extant literature and the profession. The school plays a key role in the region’s economic development through its academic programs and community outreach.

The opening of Lynn Pippenger Hall in 2017, the home for the KTSBF, was a pivotal milestone in our history. Lynn Pippenger Hall brings together students, faculty and staff, allowing for an engaged educational experience. We are grateful to Kate Tiedemann, Ellen Cotton, Lynn Pippenger and all our donors who have helped us serve our students and the community.  

I invite you to engage with the Kate Tiedemann School of Business and Finance as we build a lasting legacy in serving the needs of our students, businesses and the community with the level of excellence that has come to represent the University of South Florida.
