About the College

St. Petersburg Campus

On July 1, 2020, the Kate Tiedemann College of Business entered a new era as the Kate Tiedemann School of Business and Finance under the Muma College of Business. The school is located in Lynn Pippenger Hall on USF’s St. Petersburg waterfront campus, on the edge of downtown in the St. Pete Innovation District. Built in 2017, Lynn Pippenger Hall is a LEED Gold Certified four-story building with more than 68,000 square feet of light-filled classroom, office, and open, collaborative meeting spaces. Its unique features include the (three-story) Ellen Cotton Atrium, a 200-seat auditorium, the Customer Experience Lab, the Bishop Center for Ethical Leadership, and the Merrill Lynch Wealth Management Center.

Small classes, high-quality experiential learning, and community engagement are hallmarks of the student experience. The continuous enrichment of students is made possible with support from the community at large, local business partners, advisory board members, and dedicated alumni. We are especially grateful to the school’s three women benefactors, Kate Tiedemann, Ellen Cotton, and Lynn Pippenger for their continued support.
