If you graduated from the School of Business a decade or more ago, you probably wouldn’t recognize some of the curriculum today.

“Our students are exploring newer areas of study, including entrepreneurship, data analytics, and financial technology, as they prepare to enter a rapidly changing workforce,’’ said Dean John A. Elliott. “This is a remarkable and exciting time at the School of Business and I’m eager to talk about what has changed and why.’’

Elliott will discuss the growth and future of the School of Business during an ‘Alumni Town Hall’ at noon on Dec. 6. He will be joined by alumnus Rich Eldh ‘81, co-founder and former co-CEO of SiriusDecisions, Inc. and member of the Dean’s Advisory Board, and current undergrad business student, Aria Penna.
