Message from the Dean: A Formula for Success
The primary purpose of a university is to educate its students and help them develop the tools to successfully navigate their careers and lives. Educating students goes beyond teaching professional skills and presenting knowledge. It also requires instilling an appreciation of values and introducing the virtues of good behavior in our global village. The School of Business provides a curriculum that teaches the tools, virtues, and values necessary to shape the future of business and industry in Connecticut, while offering students exceptional quality and value.
Here at the School of Business, I am privileged to work with many talented and accomplished faculty members who, both individually and collectively, have extensive experience and knowledge in dealing with the practical needs of society and thus are better equipped to educate and prepare our students. Our remarkable faculty members breathe life into students’ dreams and aspirations.
The experience and knowledge of our faculty members is enhanced by engaging the larger community and interacting regularly with alumni, friends, and prominent leaders of industry. It is through these interactions that the virtues of good behavior are revealed to us and reflected in the School’s curricula. The strategic vision of the School requires interaction with our community in a dynamic and mutually constructive way.
Whether in accounting, finance, management, marketing , or management information systems, the School’s comprehensive plan is being implemented to ensure that our students acquire the skills and knowledge expected of them by their future employers. We will continue to raise the bar in the many areas of School life, from community engagement to faculty research, from student-focused competitions to the development of new internship opportunities.
I invite you to visit our beautiful campus and explore excellent educational opportunities offered by my talented colleagues.
