[dropcap size=small]T[/dropcap]he Miller College of Business continues to mark its milestone 50th anniversary this year.
For generations, the college has helped foster bright minds to succeed in the business world.
Remarkable alumni include E. Renae Conley, CEO of consulting firm ER Solutions; Kent “Oz” Nelson, retired CEO of UPS; John H. Schnatter, chairman, founder and CEO of Papa John’s Pizza; and A. Umit Taftali, founder and manager of Suna Kiraç (Koç) Family Office.
The college has grown to have six departments and 14 areas of study, offering nationally recognized programs and a robust online presence. Miller College is among less than 5 percent of schools worldwide accredited by AACSB International — The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business — and it is Indiana’s first state-supported institution to have separate AACSB accreditation for its accounting program.
Building on its strong foundation and significant accomplishments, the college’s dean says the momentum will continue.
“The Miller College of Business has a rich history of excellence and anticipates the future with vision and an entrepreneurial spirit. We’re preparing our students to be business leaders in the 21st century,” said Jennifer Bott.
Students have distinctive opportunities. In the New Venture Creation course, for example, they craft business plans evaluated by business professionals.
This fall, the college will add two more centers. The Center for Advancement of Digital Marketing and Analytics will give students a competitive edge in the job market through its Social Media Lab and Social Media Lab Digital Command Center. And the Logistics and Supply Chain Management Center for Excellence will foster research and scholarship for employers and the industry.
