With the competitive and breakneck competition existing in today’s business environment, companies are constantly on the lookout for ways to create value to their customers. One avenue that firms are looking toward is innovation, a key portion of any business plan. What does innovation have to do with the Daniels College of Business? It is with great pride and enthusiasm that I report that Daniels College of Business has been ranked as one of the top 50 business schools for innovation from Business Management Degrees. Congrats Daniels Pios!
The late Steve Jobs once said, “Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower”. So how does Daniels fit as a leader and to a greater degree, what is Daniels doing to shape and influence the business world of the future?
First, Daniels has been leading the way with a steadfast ethics program, one of the key elements in DCB’S mission statement. In fact, one of the mission points from Daniels states that, “We develop students of business into ethical leaders who can navigate in a changing global marketplace and world, using their deep experiential knowledge, skills and perspectives.” DCB reinforces this focus on ethics by holding a weekend long ethics “boot camp”, mandatory for all business students planning to graduate from Daniels. At this boot camp, students listen to insightful speakers, are put in situations that test their knowledge of the ethical frameworks, and play games with other Daniels students. Taylor Murphy, an Accounting major with a minor in Business Ethics and Legal Studies recounts his ethics boot camp experience by saying, “Ethics Boot Camp was an experience I will not soon forget. This weekend was full of powerful speakers who stressed the importance of Ethics in the business word and also provided a way for students to come together and truly apply ethics in their lives. My favorite part of the weekend was listening to the keynote speaker, Corey Ciocchetti. This was the first time I had experienced a professor or adult who truly cared about his students and cared about how they lived their lives.” Ultimately, Daniels College of Business has put in the work in order to give business students the key elements they need to be business leaders who set an unprecedented ethical standard in the years to come following graduation.
Daniels has also set itself apart from other business schools in terms of the vast array of post-undergraduate programs. Aside from Masters degrees in Marketing, Accounting, Real Estate, Management, Finance and more, did you know that DCB offers six different programs past undergraduate coursework? These include the full time MBA, part-time professional MBA, one-year MBA, International MBA, Executive MBA, and Dual Degree programs. Furthermore, these programs have received international attention in terms of rankings. Taken from the DCB website, “The Daniels Full-time MBA is ranked No. 2 in the world for small MBA programs and No.15 overall for integrating social and environmental issues by Beyond Grey Pinstripes.” Rather than cover business minutiae, these programs all focus on entrepreneurship and the mechanisms for innovation in the business world today. Specifically, in 2010, the Daniels College of Business’ Deutsche Bank MBA class for microfinance was ranked by Forbes in the top 10 list of innovative MBAs in the country for their social entrepreneurship work in Azerbaijan and Cambodia. Through their well-renowned MBA programs, DCB is giving students the opportunities to actively learn and critically think through what it takes to be an innovator and entrepreneur.
Although I could go on forever about how Daniels is a great place for any avid business student to be, I will stop. Honestly, the numbers speak for themselves. However, what they do not show you is how DCB is working tirelessly to give students the tools and experiences that are tantamount to success in the business environment today. Thus, we should all be thankful for the opportunities we get at Daniels, and realize chances to study at great institutions like this do not come around every day. We should all be proud to be Daniels Pioneers and carry the torch to contribute to the legacy of excellence that has been instilled in the Daniels College of Business since its foundation.
