Dean's Message

Business for a better world

CSU College of Business Dean Beth WalkerThis powerful phrase is the "rallying cry" of the Colorado State University College of Business, the thread that unites us, and the vision that guides us as we plan our course for the next five years. Little did we know that Business for a Better World, an idea that emerged from our strategic planning process last year, would become even more compelling as our College, University, and world continue to navigate the impact and uncertainty created by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Through this crisis, we remain committed to our mission: "We are in the business of transforming lives. Through business education, scholarly research, and community engagement, we make our world a better place." Supporting that bold mission is a vision centered on access, excellence, and impact. We look forward to engaging with our community as we work together to use business for a better world.
