Muyng_Soo_PortraitDear Zicklin Community,

Celebration rings throughout the Zicklin School of Business this semester, and over the last few months we have had much to be proud of.

This school year marks the 15th anniversary of the naming of the Zicklin School of Business in honor of the Zicklin family, whose generous support of the school and of so many initiatives throughout the College has helped propel the school into one of the top public institutions of business in the United States. For example, through their endowment, the College’s Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity has become a renowned forum to discuss a broad range of topics facing corporate America and our financial markets. It is fitting that this issue features an interview between the Center’s Associate Director Matthew LePere and Zicklin 2014 MBA candidate Daniel Boardman.

Professor Narendra Paul Loomba served Baruch for over four decades, and this October donated a generous gift of $3 million for the renaming of Zicklin's Department of Management as the Narendra Paul Loomba Department of Management. The entire college and our students are very grateful to Prof. Loomba for this very impactful gift, and we are eager to share Prof. Loomba's unique story in this issue.

In July, Baruch happily welcomed David P. Christy as the College’s new provost and senior vice president for Academic Affairs. I am particularly eager to share Zicklin’s exclusive interview with Provost Christy and Professor of Management Donald Vredenburgh. Prof. Vredenburgh presents another discussion with Zicklin leaders in a Q & A with John Trinkaus, emeritus professor of management at Baruch, to discuss unique insights into his experience at the College and how things were and could be.

Last spring, I announced the school’s investment in hiring new faculty through all seven departments within Zicklin. A total of 31 new faculty members have helped kick off the 2013-2014 school year, and we are happy to share more about who they are in this issue.

In August, the establishment of a new Baruch College Center for Teaching and Learning was announced. It aims to address key components of the college’s strategic plans for all students. Zicklin’s Elaine Bernstein, director of Advisement Services, met with the Center’s new Director Lucas Waltzer to talk about his vision in his new role.

Within Zicklin’s graduate programs, three new directors joined our ranks in various functions that will have profound effects on the school’s growth and on our students’ success. We hope you enjoy reading more about the great things they bring to our community.

Lastly, our “Comings and Goings” column extends a warm welcome to those who have newly joined the Zicklin community, as well as offering best wishes to those who have moved on from the school.

Fifteen years is true cause for celebration. I look forward to you celebrating with us in this issue of the Dean’s eZine.

Thank you and best regards,

Myung-Soo Lee
Interim Dean, Zicklin School of Business
