Rigor and relevance are critical to inspired academic inquiry within the College of Business. In managing our research and teaching commitments, we strive for balanced excellence.
We endeavor to marry excellence in knowledge creation with excellence in knowledge dissemination. As part of our land-grant tradition on issues relevant to the marketplace of organizations and communities, faculty members bring contemporary business issues into their research and into the classroom, and our outreach mission requires considerable emphasis on hands-on practical learning as part of the curriculum.
Professors dream of working at a place like this—having the intellectual freedom to pursue important research; the opportunity to develop fresh, relevant curriculum for bright, engaged students; the involvement of outstanding alumni; and a University culture that helps pull it all together—everyone working to deliver on our promise to make a difference.
