Since becoming dean I've often spoken about how I believe business is and should be a force for the good. It is one of the greatest creators of economic opportunity, of development, of enabling people to fulfill their goals in life. Business is about creating the new ideas of the future. It's about enabling consumers and employees and people to both improve their own quality of life and contribute to improving the quality of life of others.
I've also said that as a business school, our charge is to create the next generation of principled and integrative leaders who can once again establish the idea that business matters. I am happy to report that we are well on our way to accomplishing this.
