Business Education for the 21st Century
Developing the talents to succeed in today's dynamic and global economy takes more than a simple understanding of business theory. It takes real-life experience and guidance in a stimulating, diverse intellectual environment. In an increasingly interconnected global economy, business leaders must have the ability to think beyond the cultural confines of a single region or country. They must assimilate knowledge from across the globe and be aware of the personal, economic and organizational changes taking place around the world. And they must be able to adapt to markets and economies that change rapidly and unpredictably. The UM School of Business uniquely prepares students to succeed in this new 21st century economy.
