DEAR ALUMNI & FRIENDS,
I hope you have had a wonderful holiday season and have started a strong 2011. At B&E, our faculty and staff have started the spring semester with a renewed sense of purpose, delivering to our students a great educational experience.
Under our strategic priority of EDUCATE, there are several initiatives that will be executed in 2011: our four-year college, our revamped MBA, our additional cohorts of online Executive MBA students, our Ph.D. program in Business Administration and our additional joint programs with other colleges on campus.
This deepening and broadening of our educational offerings require renewed efforts on recruiting and the placement of our students.
On the ATTRACT/recruiting side, our efforts are not only expanding in the U.S, but in the BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) and adjacent countries as well. Our first recruiting trip to India will take place in February.
With respect to PLACE, we almost doubled the number of significant recruiting companies coming to campus in the fall semester and would like to repeat that in the spring.
Finally, as for FUNDING, we are starting to see that our alumni and friends are responding to our plea for gifts, helping us on our path toward making B&E BETTER, BIGGER, RANKED - please keep it up!
Below you will find the most exciting news taking place at our beloved College:
