"From my office, from the classroom, from downtown boardrooms and from international meeting rooms, I see a world in need of leaders. The challenges facing our world today are massive in scale and scope, and many of them demonstrate an impressive resistance to resolution. Over the past year, I have asked students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community partners what role an internationally renowned business school should play in the face of those challenges. This strategic plan is our collective response."
