Message from the Dean

Welcome to the College of Business and Economics. Leadership in business demands that today‚Äôs companies secure a strong competitive advantage, encouraging transformation, while actively seeking new innovative ideas and products.  Beyond mere competence, success for the twenty-first century manager requires vision, inspiration, and a passion to make the lives of others better.   I am proud to say that these same principles are what we practice and teach in our college.  We are confident that you will be impressed by our quality, our dedication to student growth, and the many new and exciting initiatives that will enhance student learning.

We are especially proud of the excellent faculty we have assembled.  Our business curriculum is not just a collection of independent courses taken over semesters; instead these courses connect and overlap, and are multi-functional.  Our curriculum has been designed so all the major functions of business intersect.  We complement this approach by instilling the importance of ethical and sustainable business practices, along with the critical role of international opportunities and emerging technologies.

This is a programme about you and your growth.  It is an exciting time for you and for the role that we play.  I thank you for your interest, I invite you to visit our college and to let us show you what college transformation is all about.
