Welcome From the Dean

The world needs leaders who will step up and make a difference, who aren’t afraid to start something.

Welcome to the College of Business Administration, which is an amazing community of faculty, students, staff, alumni and friends dedicated to providing an exceptional education experience for our students.

This is an incredible moment in time at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, as we have entered the Big Ten and our college is experiencing unprecedented growth in students, programs, faculty and research. It is a privilege to be the dean of this great college.

We are pursuing some audacious goals here at CBA and are striving for excellence in all we do. The world needs leaders who will step up and be courageous – whether it is a new way of thinking, a new business, an innovation or simply a new way of relating to someone else. Here at CBA we use the expression – Start Something – and it is more than just a tagline. It speaks to who we are, to the paths that so many of our great alumni have taken by starting new businesses or developing new products or services that the world didn’t know it needed. For more than a 100 years, our alumni have been busy changing the world, and bringing Nebraska values and work ethic to the world of business. We are preparing out current students with the knowledge, skills and courage to do the same thing.

We have Started Something big here at CBA and we encourage you to find out more about us and consider making this the place where you will start something important.
