At the Poole College of Management, we are fortunate to be part of a community that celebrates excellence, innovation, inclusion, ethical decision-making –– and addresses the challenges of our world by harnessing our varied skills, talents, strengths and experiences. This is how we think and do at NC State.
Nearly 1,000 undergraduate and graduate management students graduated from Poole College this past May –– armed with a world-class education, on the ground experience, critical analysis skills and a creative, entrepreneurial approach to addressing business problems. I truly believe that through this generation of leaders, we can achieve the extraordinary.
This issue of Poole Business celebrates our faculty by shining a light on some of our professors’ recent scholarship and engagement with industry, students and media.
Guiding these future business leaders are our nearly 100 world-class Poole College of Management faculty. Our faculty are thought leaders with proven success in the private sector. From exploring new technology-enabled teaching methods to partnering with companies large and small to bring real-world challenges to students to publishing in top academic journals –– our faculty are literally driving the upward trajectory of this college.
This Summer 2018 issue of Poole Business celebrates Poole College faculty by shining a light on some of our professors’ recent scholarship and engagement with industry, students and media.
We’ve had an amazing academic year at Poole College, during which we celebrated our first 25 years as NC State University’s college of management. We’ve become recognized as a place that pairs rigorous data-driven thinking with creative problem-solving, that celebrates innovative approaches to business management education. And we’re just getting started.
It is my privilege to share with you some of our recent work.
