A Message from Dean Braun...

It was great seeing so many of you at College of Business events throughout the past month! We had several successful events including the Women in Leadership conference, the Business Analytics Symposium and Homecoming.

Our Master in Financial Economics program is ranked 6th and our Master of Science in Analytics program is ranked 23rd in the country by TFE Times (formerly The Financial Engineer).

Once again, the College of Business was ranked in "The Best Business Schools for 2016" by The Princeton Review.

Thank you for reading the October issue of Biz News. You will note how our students, faculty and alumni are Going Beyond Business as Usual. If you are aware of other College of Business stories, please share with me at!
