How we’ll know we’ve succeeded
When we are graduating students who are better thinkers and better writers, armed with the skills that give them the confidence to know they can solve any problem and succeed on their chosen path; when we have retained a renowned, diverse faculty educated at the finest national and international graduate schools; when we have established an accredited, internationally recognized business school; and when we have established an academic culture committed to accountability, continuous improvement, and assessment.
