February is Hall of Fame month in the College of Business. Preparation for the event that takes place on Thursday February 23 at Rosen Shingle Creek dominates our staff meetings. Why spend so much time and effort on just one evening?
Because it’s the single biggest opportunity we have each year to show our alumni and community what we are all about, why we deserve their support and how much progress we have made together. Looking back over my five years as Dean, I cannot help but be proud of the many partnerships we have built with organizations and friends throughout Central Florida. These partnerships have helped us promote a dialogue with the community about the practice of business, engage our students in their professional development, and ignite conversations about the future of business education. We have come a long way toward achieving our vision of becoming the cross-roads of town and gown– an engaging place where people from different backgrounds come together to collaborate, take risks, analyze real time data and invent the future.
For those of you who have been coming to this event over the last five years, you know that no two Hall of Fame evenings are alike. We try to bring the UCF College of Business experience to our audience during the evening and that means getting out of our comfort zones and taking some risks with the program. If you want to attend an event that will make you proud of your hometown business school, give you a chance to get to know our amazing alumni inductees, faculty and students and give you something to talk about the next day at work, come join us by clicking here. (We’ll also get you on your way home by 9:00 pm.)
See you February 23rd.
