years I have witnessed

But none of them has done

Dear Zicklin Community,

Welcome to another newsletter and to the beginning of an exciting new semester. In spite of the economic challenges we have faced in the last year, there is much to be celebrated. In this, the 4th edition of the Dean’s E-Newsletter we share some exciting articles that are reasons for pride and recognize a few of the people responsible for our continuing success.

As we embark together on this new year, we look forward to our upcoming AACSB accreditation visit. I have just finished reviewing the materials that Dean Myung-Soo Lee and Professor Masako Darrough have prepared and want to thank them and the many other people who helped in multiple ways to assemble these documents and who will meet with the visitation team in late October. But more importantly, I thank each of you for the constructive efforts over the last five years to continue the renaissance at the Zicklin School. Thanks for reading.

Best regards,

Competitions on the rise at Baruch
Each semester new graduate MBA & MS students enter Baruch’s Zicklin School of Business and begin an exciting and rigorous journey. Many of our graduate students are working, some have family obligations, some do volunteer work, and some are doing all of the above. With so many responsibilities it is sometimes difficult to conceive of taking on additional roles. Yet we believe that a student’s co-curricular life complements his/her formal education… Read More
