  • A Message from the Dean
  • Image of Larry M. Newman, Ph.D.

    As I’m sure you are aware, the College of Business Administration is accredited by AACSB International in both business and accounting, placing us among the top 2 percent of business schools worldwide. While the CBA has continued to move forward with many initiatives, we have also been taking the time to assess our recent accomplishments. It’s all part of our AACSB Maintenance of Accreditation review process, which occurs every five years and provides the need for ongoing accountability to engage in continuous improvement.

    Over the past half-decade, we have significantly revised our EMBA, MBA and undergraduate curriculum. We have introduced new majors such as Global Supply Chain Management, as well as new minors, such as the Business of Sports. We have enhanced the opportunities for student experiential programs, such as co-ops, internships and our Pathways program. Partnerships throughout the world have made our College much more international with respect to students and study-abroad opportunities. In addition, our Centers for Excellence have partnered with other institutions, government and the corporate world.

    The CBA is proud of its many accomplishments and will continue to build its wonderful programs and reputation.

    Larry M. Newman, Ph.D.
