Dean’s Note

Spring is finally here after an especially late rough winter for the Memphis area.  As we turn our focus to the promise of the Easter season, the School of Business wishes everyone a joyful and Happy Easter!  This latest newsletter is filled with the truly remarkable accomplishments of our current students, alums, and faculty members.  From the spotlight on alums to the special interviews with current students to our current initiatives, the School of Business is excited about the future of the School and the University.

Delta Sigma Pi, the professional co-ed business fraternity, is as vital as ever at CBU with 30 current members of the Epsilon Psi chapter.  We hosted the annual Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) and Distributive Education Clubs of America (DECA) competitions for the second and third years respectively, and we will again be offering summer camps in business and accounting for the third consecutive year this July.  The theme of this year’s business camp is Memphis business and we continue our very important relationship with the National Association of Black Accountants (NABA) in presenting the Accounting Careers Awareness Camp (ACAP) for minority students.  We gratefully thank the local accounting firms that fund this camp.  Finally, we are fortunate to have the Barret School of Banking residing on our campus and we are proud to announce a new concentration in banking that will begin this coming fall, 2015, with support from the director of Barret, Chris Kelley.

Don’t forget, you may connect with us via social media through Facebook, LinkedIn, and Pinterest.
