Home Message from the Dean

Welcome to AbsoLUTEly Business

Welcome to our fall 2015 edition of the Pacific Lutheran University School of Business magazine, AbsoLUTEly Business.

Our interactive online publication represents a current look into the many new and exciting opportunities, events, and people associated with the PLU School of Business. With each innovative change to our school, we are constantly striving to uphold and exemplify our mission statement:

The PLU School of Business is a community of engaged faculty, staff and administrators who provide an excellent business education in a student-centered learning environment grounded in the liberal arts that inspires students to: LEARN for life, LIVE purposefully, LEAD responsibly and CARE for others.

In this issue, we are proud to spotlight the School of Business’s value for global education through our focus on study away trips with our students and faculty. We are constantly striving to create opportunities for our students to expand their educational horizons beyond our borders.

Additionally, we present our new faculty, student spotlights and updated master’s programs among our many features.

As always, the School of Business is especially grateful for our Executive Advisory Board, whose insight helps us shape our programs to prepare our students to enter the modern business world as entrepreneurial, accountable, innovative, and sustainable business leaders. We would also like to thank our alumni and donors, without whom we could not have accomplished the excellence we have reached today.

These are exciting times. Thank you for being here with us,

Nancy Albers-Miller
