Welcome to the winter edition of Lundquist College of Business magazine. It's been six months since our last magazine went to press, and it's a testament to our Lundquist College faculty, staff, students, and you, our unwavering supporters, that a transition period could be so incredibly productive. It all starts with the students, and ours are blowing away their peers in analytics competition, hackathons, and even at the Olympics. Meanwhile, our faculty members are earning national and international attention for their pioneering research. And our best fundraising year ever allowed us to name our first Professor of Practice in Finance, Scott Kerslake. Additionally, in recent months we have • Maintained our number one placement in the category of Best Green MBA as ranked by The Princeton Review for the second consecutive year • Secured a spot on Bloomberg Businessweek's best U.S. graduate business schools • Established a master of science degree in finance • Named our new dean • Fortified our academy with outstanding hires • Opened our new Portland home at 109 Naito. In the midst of this evolution, it's important to note a few things that have not changed, and we hope never will: the impressive grit of our students, the dedication of our faculty and staff, and the faithful support of our alumni and friends. You are the Lundquist College of Business, not us. Thank you for being amazing. As we look to the future, we greet 2017 sure of foot and ready for the good, hard work of preparing our students to not only enter the business world, but in doing so, make the world better for all. Thank you for joining us on this journey.
