The Weatherhead School of Management is different from other business schools. We are bold in our ideas, creative in our approach, and adaptive in our interactions within a changing business environment. We’ve enhanced traditional management education by integrating the fundamentals of business with ideas and practices that change individuals, organizations, and societies. We ask our students and faculty to think beyond the possible—to push past the limits of today’s knowledge and imagine the questions that lie just over the horizon. Our graduates add immediate value to organizations, communities, and the world.
