I am delighted to welcome everyone back for the 2012-2013 academic year. Over the past few months, we have undertaken several initiatives to add value to our business degree and the student experience.
Our undergraduate curriculum has been updated and enhanced to make it more relevant for the organizations today and in the future. We are also in the process of updating our MBA curriculum and developing a fresh format that will appeal to a wide range of working professionals and international students.
We have enhanced and added several new experiential elements such as internships, case competitions, pitch competitions, networking events, business speakers, and much more. You can find information about all of our upcoming events on the School’s website (www.uvm.edu/business), social media, emails and the digital screens in Kalkin Hall.
This fall, the School welcomes two new faculty members: Hung Do and Glenn Walberg. Dr. Do holds two Ph.D.’s in Electronics and Computing from Gunma University in Japan and in Operations Management from Purdue University. His research interests include: Procurement and Inventory Control, Information Sharing and Decision Making, Stochastic Models, Queuing Systems, and Stochastic Game Theory applied to study Supply Chain Management.
Glenn Walberg obtained his Master of Laws (LL.M.) in Taxation from the Georgetown University Law Center after obtaining his Juris Doctorate (JD) from the College of William and Mary School of Law. His current academic research addresses methods of accounting with an emphasis on how contract law influences tax accruals and capitalization principles.
The faculty, staff and of course, our students, have done terrific work during the past year to generate a dynamic positive momentum for the business school. We look forward to another productive and successful year.
Dr. Sanjay Sharma, Dean & Professor of Management
