Welcome back to a new academic year. The Business School continues to foster a community of innovation, growth and academic differentiation. We do so through professional development, creativity, industry partnerships and student achievements.
Our greatest strength as a business school is the enrichment we provide our students through hands-on learning, which is provided by our accomplished and industry-experienced faculty and staff. This year our plans include a variety of students competitions, study-abroad opportunities, international scholarly activities and so much more.
Highlighting the year will be the development of a new strategic plan for the college, a new Strategic Mandate Agreement and the launch of many Academic Plan activities, including new programming, flexible learning strategies and institutional learning outcomes. I look forward to working with all of you in our quest to deliver relevant, career-focused business education.
