AGENTS OF CHANGE

Education with Purpose
DEAN'S REPORT 2017

The school of Business is committed to being a proactive agent in developing a new kind of wealth. We envision wealth creation that: is equitable and socially inclusive (people), environmentally friendly (planet), financially solid (profit), builds harmonious societies (peace), and fosters a sustainable economy (prosperity). This is the penta-bottom line approach to the business enterprise.

To accomplish this vision, the aim of the University of San Diego School of Business is “education with a purpose.” Our objective is to graduate students who are socially responsible and internationally competitive leaders, entrepreneurs and agents of change who will transform lives in our society and around the world.

On behalf of the entire USD School of Business community, thank you for supporting our school. As you will see throughout this report, we have accomplished a lot in the last year. None of this would be possible without the generosity of donors like you.

Thank you for being a key partner in our journey towards creating a penta-bottom line business environment for our local and global community

The New Entrepreneur

Alexander came to USD’s School of Business because he had big ideas for saving lives. He participated in the Social Innovation Challenge, presenting "THE POD," a small medical device designed to address the third leading cause of death in the U.S. - medical errors - which result in 250,000 avoidable deaths annually. He was one of ten winners to receive funding to launch his innovation. That was the start. Today, with the guidance of professors, mentors, and San Diego’s innovation community, he has formed a team of law students, engineers and marketing gurus to bring this idea to life.

Students Consulting for BMW in Munich

A diverse team of USD School of Business MBA students travelled to Munich, Germany during intersession for an immersion consulting experience. They were asked to roll up their sleeves to come up with a marketing strategy for BMW Motorrad (Motorcycle) to appeal to the Indian and Chinese millennial populations. The team had ten days to get culturally acquainted in Germany, understand their client’s challenges and objectives, research target markets in India and China, all of this while learning how to work with a team of people they had never met – including MBA students from our partner university in Germany – and deliver results. At the end of the experience, a presentation was made by the student team to the product manager of BMW Motorrad that may impact how BMW Motorrad positions its motorcycles in these emerging markets. To which, Dominic Thönnes, product manager of BMW Motorrad, said: “It is impressive, how fast the students are able to get used to a new topic, understand the situation and factors that influence the topic and work out solutions to improve business. In only ten working days the team presented new, compelling recommendations that we’ll try to implement in our strategy within this year.”

EXPLORE GLOBAL OPPORTUNITIES

This is just one example. Nine teams of approximately 30 students consulted local organizations in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Shanghai, China and Munich, Germany under the guidance of our esteemed faculty during intersession 2017. And nearly 2,000 people participated in our Ahlers Center for International Business programs just in the last academic year.

Joyfully Giving Back

As an alumnae from the University of San Diego School of Business and a member of the business community, I am inspired to give back to the School of Business because of the expertise that the school provides to the students, and the long-term impact this footprint has in our community. Giving to the Dean’s fund allows the School of Business to use the funds where they are needed the most whether that be to support the entrepreneurship program, new faculty, or new programs. I like being able to give to a fund that has the flexibility to improve the School of Business where it is needed the most. I’m so thrilled to see how the School of Business has improved over the past 30 years since I attended the MBA program. We’ve surrounded ourselves with experts and forward-thinkers and it is very exciting to see our School of Business continue to move towards a bright future.

*Every effort has been made to ensure accuracy for gifts made between July 1, 2016 and June 30, 2017. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

Annual gifts are a vital source of financial support for the school and are a critical component of the School of Business’ ability to close the gap between income and expenditures. They help provide our students and faculty with the resources they need to remain competitive and enhance our ability to respond to new, exciting opportunities. All gifts really do make a difference, and we appreciate all contributions.
