We want a seat at the table with the best business schools in the world, and it is our goal to be in the top 5 as defined by external metrics such as BusinessWeek and U.S. News and World Report. Make no mistake, we are already in great company and according to BusinessWeek we are the most improved undergraduate program in the U.S.
These external metrics are not the only factor that matters, but they are important to our progress. They are important because reputation is a virtuous cycle, allowing Isenberg to attract the best students and top-caliber faculty, enhance student placement opportunities and exit salaries, and facilitate alumni engagement and pride in the Isenberg brand. As we build our reputation, we move closer to our vision.
How can we get there? We can do it by building a culture of commitment towards greatness, where the entire Isenberg community—students, faculty, staff and alumni—is engaged and dedicated to rethinking and improving what we do. We need everyone on board, including you, to make our vision a reality.
I ask you to invest in Isenberg. Your investment can take many forms. If you’d like to discuss how you can help shape the future of Isenberg, please get in touch today.
