Milestones

2022

The School of Business announced the addition of a full online master’s degree in Human Resources Management in September 2022, to begin the following year. The School’s program is designed to meet the changing needs of HR professionals as their roles become more strategic in the development of the destiny of their companies.

Two-time alumnus David "Dave" Wharmby '89, '02 MBA returned to UConn in Fall of 2022 as the new director of the Center for Real Estate and Urban Economic Studies. He replaced professor John Glascock, who retired after 11 years. Wharmby brings 30 years of experience in the industry, most recently at Barings. The Real Estate program ranks third in the world for real estate academic achievement, and No. 14 for undergraduate real estate programs, according to U.S. News & World Report.

The School of Business hosted its first Global Business Leadership in Sustainability Summit on March 25, 2022 on the Storrs campus. The half-day event gathered professionals, faculty, and students to discuss key topics for business, as well as existing sustainability initiatives across UConn. Organizers hope it will be the first of many conferences to build relationships between business partners and the growing number of students who aspire to make an impact on sustainability.

The School of Business announced in Spring 2022 that it would add a Social Responsibility and Impact in Business Minor for all UConn students, and a parallel concentration for marketing majors. The concentration/minor is designed to future business leaders in and addressing the local and global challenges of business and society. The new minor/concentration began in the Fall of 2022.

2021

In April 2021, the UConn Board of Trustees approved the creation of a master’s degree in FinTech (financial technology), allowing the School of Business to join the ranks of only a handful of universities around the globe to offer the specialized program. The program offers lessons in advanced business analytics, technology solutions and financial services. The first cohort began their studies in Spring 2022.

2020

Amphenol, a Fortune 500 company headquartered in Wallingford, Conn., created a $1 million accounting scholarship in honor of its late CFO Diana Reardon. Reardon earned her business degree from UConn in 1981. Her family said she would be thrilled that the scholarships will serve ambitious women pursuing accounting degrees.

After serving as interim provost, John A. Elliott returns as dean of the School of Business, where he holds the Auran J. Fox Chair in Business.

2019

Thomas Katsouleas, a leading plasma scientist with deep academic roots in teaching and research, becomes UConn's 16th President in February. "Increasingly, having a great business school has become more and more central to being a great university," Katsouleas said shortly after joining the university.

David Souder is appointed interim dean of the School of Business.

The School of Business establishes the Toscano Family Chair in Finance. Professor Yiming Qian is recruited as the inaugural chair.

The School's Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans (EBV) program celebrates its 10th anniversary. The program helps U.S. veterans fulfill their dreams of owning their own businesses. To date, program alumni have created 168 businesses.

2018

The School of Business and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences launch a new dual-degree, German-immersion program called EUROBIZ to give students an edge when applying for jobs with international companies.

Highlighting the long-standing excellence of our accounting department, alumnus Matt Bradford '16, '17 MSA gets the highest score in Connecticut, and one of the best in the nation, on the four-part CPA exam.

2017

With much fanfare, UConn opens its new Downtown Hartford campus for undergraduate students, anchored by the former Hartford Times building on Prospect Street. Combined with the nearby GBLC, the university now has more than 3,000 students adding to the capital city’s vibrancy.

UConn's Stamford campus opens its first dormitory, a six-story, 116-unit building at 900 Washington Boulevard, just two blocks south of the main campus. The Fairfield-County campus serves a variety of majors, including business students, and the long-anticipated transition from a commuter- to residential- campus was widely celebrated.

Entrepreneur Peter J. Werth establishes the Werth Institute for Entrepreneurship & Innovation, pledging $22.5 million to UConn. The School of Business is a key partner in the endeavor. Werth, who is not an alumnus, said he has come to believe in both UConn’s mission and the extraordinary potential of its students.

2016

The Board of Trustees vote to extend the lease at the Graduate Business Learning Center (GBLC) at 100 Constitution Plaza in Hartford and to add two additional floors to the existing space. The decision creates a long-term presence for the graduate programs in the heart of Hartford and reflects the surge in demand for specialty master's degree programs.

2015-2016

The School celebrates its 75th anniversary with a commemorative publication highlighting its past achievements, and begins planning for its next 75.

2012

John A. Elliott becomes the Dean of the UConn School of Business and the Auran J. Fox Chair in Business. His academic experience includes 20 years on the faculty at Cornell University and serving as the Dean at the Zicklin School of Business at Baruch College, part of the City University of New York.
