Leadership Through Collaboration

A college of business does not stand alone. On top of strong leadership, dedicated people, and a clear and compelling vision, it must take its cues from the leaders of the business community. We work closely with the best and brightest minds to help guide the college and ensure that we are in line with the needs of today while looking forward to the opportunities of tomorrow.
