Fall 2022 Dean's Report

“A Marshall business degree empowers students to be the business leaders of today, prepares them for the uncharted waters of tomorrow, and gives them the skills to thrive in a business environment of unlimited opportunity and unparalleled responsibility.”

This year we've launched a lot of incredible new programs and initiatives – from new joint-degrees and student investment funds, to initiatives in data science and digital ethics, to our newly named Peter Arkley Institute for Risk Management and VanEck Digital Assets Initiative. There’s much to look forward to in 2023 and beyond.
