Fordham Graduate School of Business Update
In August 2006, Fordham Graduate School of Business hired a new dean. Dr. Howard P. Tuckman came to Lincoln Center from Rutgers Business School with big ideas for raising the visibility of Fordham Business and for creating a unique identity to enhance the value of our degree. As he starts his second year, we can reflect on past activities and his vision for the school.
For the first time in over a decade, Fordham Graduate School of Business has a formal strategic plan that includes building a stronger international network, reaching out to alumni and business leaders, and improving students’ experiences at the school. These goals extend throughout the coming years, but we have already started to implement strategies to achieve them.
We have been to Belgium, Spain, Italy, Turkey, China, and beyond exploring universities that may become partners in the provision of a top quality and world-wide education for our students. Our goal is to keep Fordham Business students and alumni plugged into the global business arena, enhancing their skills and making them stronger competitors and employees.
Our Career Services Office is currently being reorganized, and we are conducting a national search for a new director. We want to increase career advancement opportunities for our students and staff, and this reorganization is a key strategy in achieving this goal.
In addition to our international programs and our Career Services work, the Graduate School of Business website has been completely redesigned, reorganized, and updated to better serve our various stakeholders. As this new site is further enhanced, we are also building a strong Intranet site for students, faculty, and alumni. It will be an interactive, information-packed resource for our community members.
We are determined to make Fordham Graduate School of Business a leader in global education that fosters strong connections between students, alumni, and faculty. And we cannot accomplish this goal without your continued help and support.
