The College of Business gathers, develops and disseminates educational and research programs of excellence demanded by our rapidly changing, information-driven, global community.
Four key priorities drive the strategic initiatives of the College of Business, providing a common thread across sub-disciplines and enhancing the accomplishment of our mission. Our strategic initiatives are cross-disciplinary and build on the foundation of these key priorities – guiding recruiting decisions, intellectual contributions, curriculum development, alliances, and internal support processes.
- Business Ethics and Social Responsibility
- Impactful Research
- Global Orientation
- Sustainable Enterprise
Current strategic initiatives include the Master Teacher Initiative
, the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative
, ITeach Resources
, and the Global Business School Network
. Future initiatives will further enhance the College’s priorities.
||Excellent classroom teaching is a hallmark of our College. The Master Teacher Initiative contributes to the creation of a culture where the scholarship of teaching is valued and signals the importance of the craft with the College’s tripartite mission of teaching, research, and service.
||The Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative actively engages students in building a solid principle-based ethical framework for decision making in a complex business environment. This initiative integrates ethics instruction throughout the curriculum, including practical applications and exposure to business practitioners.
||Good IT skills are increasingly crucial for educators in today's learning environment. ITeach is dedicated to providing IT tips (ITips) to help faculty and staff apply technology effectively. This will make their work more efficient and improve communication with both students and colleagues.
||The development of locally-trained managers is crucial to improving the living standards in developing countries. The Global Business School Network is a collaboration of international business schools that supports the growth of local management education through cross-cultural knowledge exchange, capacity-building programs, and networking events.
