Spring 2012 SBA Insight Online now availableDedicated to Excellence
Message from the Dean
The School of Business Administration at Oakland University is dedicated to excellence through integration. We accomplish that in many ways – through meaningful research (watch for the upcoming print issue of SBA Insight for examples), innovative education through courses and programs, and recognition of excellence of students and our alumni. It is imperative to student success that the education they receive in and out of the classroom equips them to successfully adapt and operate in a business climate that evolves every day.
In the Spring 2012 issue of SBA Insight Online, we shine the spotlight on a few examples that do just that. You'll read about the SBA's new Scholars program that is helping high-achieving students develop leadership and analytical skills through workshops, mentoring and case competitions. We offer a glimpse into new advanced education programs that will begin later this year – our new Master of Science in Information Technology Management in Business Analytics and two new certificate programs focused on advancing corporate leadership and innovation.
In addition, we highlight stories about a new student organization, faculty and alumni accomplishments, and our celebration honoring student achievement. Lastly, we provide a link to a short video where you can hear first-hand how SBA students talk about the value of their experiences at OU's SBA.
