Create a School of Management with world-class capabilities

Students in the Undergraduate Learning and Community Center.

Develop global leaders

The School of Management, through its Center for Leadership and Organizational Effectiveness, partnered with the African Rights Initiative International to launch the Global Center for Leadership and Social Innovation in Ghana. Now, we're working together to deliver much-needed education and leadership skills development in Africa. Up next, we hope to build partnerships to replicate this successful model, creating similar centers around the world.

Build a culture of philanthropy

Philanthropy helps us fund opportunities for our ambitious students to test their ideas, take the lead and become part of the global business world. Gifts from our dedicated alumni and friends provide hands-on learning experiences, nurture students’ entrepreneurial drive and help us make an impact in our community — and beyond.

Examples

Grow research resources

As our researchers and experts question theories and make startling discoveries, external funding from federal and state agencies, foundations and industry is critical. Right now, our faculty are using these resources to investigate cyberinfrastructure, risk management financial systems, how to improve patient outcomes using social media — and much more.

Examples

Expand alumni engagement

Look closely in virtually any corner of the world and you will find successful alumni from the UB School of Management. We offer many ways for our 41,000 graduates to stay involved, and we strive to expand opportunities for engagement, especially outside of Western New York.

Examples

Communicate our brand

At the UB School of Management, we are a vibrant and inclusive community where ambition is a virtue, tenacity is a given, and discovery happens everywhere, from the classroom to the boardroom. We continuously seek new ways to tell our authentic story and strengthen how we communicate our brand.
