Message from the Dean

Deborah F. Spake, Dean

As the fall 2019 semester comes to a close, I am pleased to provide an update on the College of Business Administration's many accomplishments.

This fall the Online MBA program was ranked number one out of 15 online MBA programs in Ohio by MBA Central, based on the quality of classes, support services and affordability. This is a remarkable achievement for a program that has only been offered online for two years, and it recognizes the commitment of the faculty and staff to develop and deliver high quality degree programs.

The work of the college also extends beyond the classroom and evolves with new technology. An example is the launch of two new podcast series designed to provide career readiness advice and share business faculty expertise more broadly. Ready for Business launched this fall and features interviews with employers giving advice on topics such as the resume, online branding, and career fairs. Breaking Down Business will launch in the spring and feature faculty discussing timely business topics.

As you will also see in this issue of the newsletter, the fall brought continued success for the award-winning student sales team and chapter recognitions for Delta Sigma Pi and Beta Gamma Sigma.

Wishing you a happy holiday season,



Deborah F. Spake, Ph.D.

Dean, College of Business Administration
