This has proven to be another exciting fall on the Hill. We were very excited to host MBA students from China who helped us gain a better understanding of the vastness and smallness of the global community in which we live. We hosted Bill Cobb from H&R Block as our Truex lecturer and had one of our best turnouts for a lecture series with over 200 students and many more guests and faculty in attendance. We held a series of events on campus during Global Entrepreneur Week with many planned and hosted by our student run E-Society. It was an exciting week of events focusing on all different aspects of entrepreneurship. And we introduced two new business courses in the Integrated Healthcare minor – “Organizational Foundations” and “Healthcare in Society”. As we celebrate our December graduates we are excited about their job opportunities, their leadership ability and the impact they will have on our world. Please take the time to read through the articles in this edition of Jewell Business Today. We are enthusiastic about all that is happening in the Business and Leadership department and encourage you to learn more about our happenings and join in when possible.
Sincerely, Dr. Kelli Schutte, Chair of the Department of Business and Leadership
