2 Welcome Letter It is my honor and pleasure to welcome you to the D Amore-McKim School of Business at Northeastern University. Since its founding in 1922, the College of Business Administration has been on a tremendous trajectory. We have pushed ahead on all aspects of our mission: teaching, research, outreach, and impact on business practice. The College s name changed in September 2012 when we received a $60 million naming gift from alumni Rich D Amore and Alan McKim. These business visionaries saw what I saw when I decided to join Northeastern in July Our business school model with its focus on experiential learning, globalization, technology-enabled learning, and a rich mix of foundational and translational research is extremely well-suited to meet the evolving needs of today s business student and our society at large. The D Amore-McKim School of Business is committed to experiential learning. Our undergraduate students transition seamlessly from their classes to applied work environments in our world-renowned co-op program. They also contribute to business-focused organizations such as IDEA, Northeastern s venture accelerator. Our students develop a sophisticated and contextual understanding of business concepts that allows them to add immediate value. Our graduate students benefit from experiential learning opportunities as well, such as the six-month corporate residency program in the full-time MBA, global residencies in the Executive MBA, international field study courses in the Online MBA, and innovation projects in the High Tech MBA. It is no surprise that our graduates secure top jobs, and like our benefactors Rich D Amore and Alan McKim, go on to create and lead successful global organizations. This success is reflected in our program rankings: Bloomberg Businessweek has ranked our undergraduate program #1 in internships for seven consecutive years, and in 2012 U.S. News & World Report named our full-time MBA program #5 in the U.S. for job placement of MBA graduates. While our students earn a high personal return on their educational investment, the D Amore-McKim School of Business is also committed to creating value for our economy and society at large. We pride ourselves on conducting research and outreach activities that address the world s most pressing issues, such as corporate governance, sustainability, growth and development in emerging markets, social entrepreneurship and health care management. We also realize that to remain relevant in today s global economy, we must embed a global mindset and orientation into all of our programs, research, and outreach activities. We have a top-20 international business program and offer numerous opportunities for our students to study and complete co-ops abroad. In addition, we have leading research centers focused on emerging markets, global leadership, and global innovation management. Our faculty are thought leaders in their academic fields and in business practice. Many edit leading academic journals and lead professional organizations, while others serve on corporate boards and actively consult and teach at leading organizations through our executive education programs. In all cases, they are fully committed to student learning and success and in advancing state-of-the-art business research and practice. While we take pride in developing the next generation of business innovators and entrepreneurs, we also consider ourselves educational innovators and entrepreneurs. For example, we are one of the leading providers of online graduate business programs in the country. We offer a rich suite of graduate degree and certificate programs, as well as interdisciplinary minors and concentration areas for our undergraduate programs. We are committed to helping our students define individualized programs of study that serve their interests best by leveraging the extraordinary collaborations we have with other Northeastern colleges and with our global corporate and university partners. I am fortunate to be leading the D Amore-McKim School of Business at this transformational time in its history. I invite you to learn more about our school and consider joining us as we redefine global, experiential education in the coming years. Best regards, Hugh Courtney Dean D Amore-McKim School of Business Northeastern University
