Impact Report showcases Biz Ram community and new College brand


We’re thrilled to announce the release of our first Business for a Better World Impact Report, showcasing how our Biz Ram community is making a difference and advancing a sustainable future. 

We’ve accomplished a lot in recent years. Financial Times named us Best Business School in North America for responsible business education. Our MBA ranked as the No. 4 Better World MBA nationwide and No. 9 for employability. Our students completed 38,000 hours of corporate sustainability work and won a worldwide humanitarian case competition. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. 

This magazine demonstrates the impressive breadth of our impact at the College of Business – and we have only scratched the surface of what our Biz Ram community can achieve with our shared commitment to our Business for a Better World vision.

The new report also provides a first look at the College’s exciting new brand visuals, representing our Colorado roots and commitment to people, planet, profit and purpose to achieve a better future. Read the full report here.

The finance department's Hilla Skiba talks meme stocks on 850 KOA

GameStop stock once again made unexpected gains recently, but buying into the gaming retailer's stock may not be the answer to wealth creation. In a recent interview with 850 KOA, Skiba discusses the risk of meme stocks, their virality and how “investing” in these stocks is more like gambling.

The marketing department’s Chris Berry discusses health food packaging with National Geographic

From organic and non-GMO to naturally grown, the list of health food buzzwords is lengthy. But what does it all mean, and how can we tell what’s actually worth paying extra for? In an article from National Geographic, Berry talks about the CNG (Certified Naturally Grown) label and how it – and other government or third-party certifications – are “something that consumers can rely on.”

'Othello' to pizzagate: How social media misinformation plays out its role like a Shakespearean tragedy

In March, a New York state judge ruled that a lawsuit could go forward against several social media companies alleging that the platforms contributed to the radicalization of a gunman who killed 10 people at a grocery store in Buffalo, N.Y., in 2022. While the case itself won’t likely see the inside of a courtroom for years, it has sparked a debate on just how culpable – and calculating – social media platforms really are. 

The computer information systems department's Hamed Qahri-Saremi spoke on the CSU podcast The Audit about a new theory that social media misinformation might actually be taking a page from Shakespearean tragedies.
