FROM THE DEAN
PREPARING THE BUSINESS LEADERS OF THE FUTURE
BY GENE ANDERSON

It’s been a busy and exciting time since I arrived in Coral Gables this past August and began my appointment as dean of the University of Miami School of Business. I have already had the pleasure of meeting many of you — alumni, students, parents, donors, supporters and friends of the School, and colleagues around the University and the South Florida business community. I look forward to connecting with many more of you during the next few months.

I’m honored and thrilled to be leading the School at a time when business education is at a crossroads. The unprecedented issues facing global business and society in the 21st century call for a new generation of ideas and leaders. The School is uniquely positioned to help develop that next generation, as well as bring new expertise and ways of thinking to businesses around the world. We have world-class faculty members who are thought leaders in their research and the educational experiences they design. Through our undergraduate, graduate and executive programs, we are preparing students, business leaders and organizations to successfully compete in today’s changing business world.

Our unique position in the gateway to the Americas helps us connect with the fast-growing markets of Latin America, and provides an ideal location for international business education.All of this happens only with your help: your gifts of time and talent spent with our students, your interest in our students and graduates for internships and jobs, your donations, and your thoughtful input on how to move our community forward. Together, we will develop the leaders of today, and of the decades to come.

I welcome your ideas about the future of business education and how the School of Business can help lead the way into that future. Please feel free to email or call me with your thoughts.
