A Letter from Interim Dean John McDermott
July 4, 2013
The Darla Moore School of Business has a long tradition of preparing expert leaders for the international business marketplace, adding to our knowledge of business practice and increasing our understanding of the global economy.
Our undergraduate and graduate programs benefit from dedicated faculty who understand that teaching and research are essential in the modern business school.
Business is a key agent for organizing human talent, physical capital and new technology to create wealth and economic growth. An energetic, competitive and creative business sector enhances society's well being, both directly through the creation of excellent jobs and new goods and services, and indirectly by supporting public service. The challenge is to understand this process better and to teach people to participate in business at the highest levels. The Moore School is dedicated to all of these goals.
Graduates of the Moore School work in business, academia and government around the world. Our undergraduate programs enjoy an excellent reputation -- the International Business major is ranked first in the United States, the Global Supply Chain Center receives considerable attention for its unique approach to business partnership, and our highly ranked Professional MBA and Executive Education programs provide life-long learning for business professionals. Our International MBA is distinctly innovative, and our Masters of Human Resources and Masters of Accounting programs are highly ranked and highly regarded.
We will be moving to a beautiful, environmentally and technologically advanced new building in the summer of 2014. The new facility will make the experience of studying at the Moore School more intellectually stimulating and professionally engaging.
John H. McDermott
Interim Dean and Professor of Economics
