The College of Business Administration hosted the recent meeting of the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities (AJCU) Business Deans. The group shared ideas on joint programs and new initiatives, business ethics, possible joint advertising, enrollment issues, and the new standards for The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Visiting administrators also toured the renovated Commerce & Finance Building and attended a demonstration of alumni contact software.
Dean Bahman Mirshab is the group’s 2005-2006 president and also moderated a session at the meeting. Says Mirshab, “It’s important that all the business deans compare notes and work together on issues that concern all of our institutions. For the first time, all UDM deans and vice presidents were also invited to meet with us, which was beneficial to those attending.”
The other AJCU member-institutions that had representatives in attendance included Boston College, Canisius College, Creighton University, Fairfield University, Fordham University, Gonzaga University, John Carroll University, Le Moyne College, Loyola College in Maryland, Loyola Marymount University, Loyola University Chicago, Loyola University New Orleans, Marquette University, Regis University, Rockhurst University, Saint Joseph's University, Saint Louis University, Seattle University, Spring Hill College, University of San Francisco, University of Scranton, Wheeling Jesuit University, Xavier University.
Mirshab is also vice president and program chair of the AACSB Mid-Continent East Deans for the 2005-06 year. In that capacity, he will plan and arrange next year’s annual conference in Chicago.
