"There's no rest for the weary..." or so the saying goes. At the end of the year, the full-time faculty in BizComm always look forward to their academic retreat, held this year in the School of Business. The day was filled with business, reflection, and humor as the faculty planned activities, examined courses, and talked shop as they made ready for the 2014-15 academic year. A close examination of the curriculum, issues of branding, and ideas for new courses were among the highlights of the day. Pictured at left, the six full-time members of the BizComm family.

As they graduate, we are hearing from several of our BizComms who have landed great jobs already.
