On behalf of the faculty of the School of Business, I welcome you to the exciting and challenging field of business education. Whether you are seeking a graduate degree, undergraduate degree or just a single course, you’ll find that we are here to help you become not only academically excellent and professionally qualified but also spiritually aware and socially skilled. You’ll begin adding value to your organization the moment you join the School of Business.

Within our programs, you will be exposed to our scholar-practitioner model of education. We firmly believe that effective scholarly practice is grounded in theory, research and applied practice. We also believe that effective scholarship is driven by personal values, commitment and ethical conduct. As scholar-practitioners ourselves, we reflect on and assess the impact of our work, while learning about or recognizing organizational problems, examining them closely, and searching for productive solutions. This definition informs our role as faculty members and guides the development of our curriculum.

Again, thank you for choosing the Newman University School of Business.
