Message from the Dean
College of Business Administration is committed to providing its students
with an excellent business education based on ethics and attuned to the
times. One way the College helped to reinforce this commitment was by
sponsoring a lecture, “Rebuilding Trust in
Business”, on October 16 that featured Allan Gilmour, vice chairman
and CFO of Ford Motor Company; Anne Kennedy (’83), vice president
and director of Portfolio Management at Munder Capital Management; and
Gerald F. Cavanagh, S.J., UDM’s Charles T. Fisher III Chair of Business
Ethics and professor of Management.
The College is proud to have approved its strategic plan in September 2002, which will encourage ways to continue its commitment to teaching excellence through faculty development initiatives. Moreover, the faculty is actively engaged in scholarly activities, which have resulted in many publications and presentations.
Private support is crucial to our ability to maintain and enhance the excellent programs that have been a part of the University tradition for generations. It is encouraging to see the momentum of individual giving continue to grow. The College of Business Administration needs your support for a succesful completion to the Commerce and Finance Building renovation and the Legacy Campaign. Every gift counts, and every new and increased gift will be matched by the Challenge Grant. The increased involvement of such support will also help increase our national ranking and, in turn, help recruit the nation’s best students.
The College is pleased to announce the appointment of Richard Kelley as the director of Development. Kelley graduated with a bachelor of arts degree from Michigan State University and has a background in account management at Ford Motor and software sales at Intraware, Inc. and SUN Microsystems. For the past year, Kelley worked for the UDM School of Law in alumni relations and development.
