A Word From Dean Spake | Kent State University

A Word From Dean Spake

In the last two years we have worked hard to tell the College of Business Administration story.  One that accurately reflects the College's innovative programs and top quality curriculum, one that shares our commitment to scholarly research, and emphasizes our ongoing efforts to develop meaningful corporate partnerships and career development initiatives for our students.  Our efforts at promoting the College is making a difference and has not gone unnoticed.

The college was again recognized by U.S. News and World Report as a 2015 Best Undergraduate Business Program moving up four spots from last year and again recognized as a 2015 Best Business School by The Princeton Review.  The College also reported a 3.4 percent increase in fall enrollment to over 4,500 students; as well as a record-high retention rate of 83.8 percent. This makes the College of Business Administration the second largest business college in Ohio.

I would like to personally thank the faculty and staff for their hard work, congratulate the four faculty who achieved a promotion and finally welcome our 11 new faculty members to the College.  

I look forward to another rewarding fall semester and our continued success.
