Kendall Hall inscription - "Today Decides Tomorrow"

Message from the Dean

The foundational belief in the College of Business is that business can be a force for tremendous good in our society. This belief is reflected in our purpose statement to "discover new ways of knowing how business can positively impact society." Our ongoing exploration of this potential is illuminated through the impactful research contributions of our esteemed faculty.

Our dedication to impactful research extends beyond personal conviction—it is an integral component of our accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). The accreditation standards emphasize the notion that “...The production of intellectual contributions in and of itself is not sufficient for demonstrating thought leadership... Business education can help solve the world's problems when discipline silos are broken down and knowledge is combined across disciplines. Through teaching, education, and scholarship, we seek... to promote such impactful work to better society and contribute to solving some of society's grand challenges.”

Our faculty's dedication to thoughtful and impactful research has not only advanced our understanding of business organizations but has also underscored their positive influence on society. Beyond the realms of scholarly pursuits, our faculty members are actively shaping the landscape of business practices and pioneering innovative approaches in business education. I am confident that the detailed research write-ups enclosed in these publications will captivate and intrigue you.
