Welcome to the Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business.
We are in our 49th year of providing practical, experience-based business education.
Our mission is "to prepare our students to become competent and responsible managers
who are also principled and moral leaders." We practice this mission by embracing
the educational philosophy that "experience matters" on a school-wide level—including
all students, faculty, staff and our 17,000+ alumni holding professional and leadership
positions throughout the world.
Our undergraduate curriculum blends practical experience, including a requirement
that students demonstrate at least 400 hours of successful work experience, with a
rigorous academic curriculum integrating liberal arts core texts with leadership,
ethics, and business classes. Graduates from the Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of
Business have careers in some of the most well-recognized firms in the world.
Our graduate curriculum serves as the exemplar for experience-based education tuned
to industry needs. A hallmark of the MBA program is the culminating Capstone experience
in which MBA students work in the field with a client to address a strategic or operational
issue in their company, entrepreneurial venture, or not-for-profit organization. Our
Capstone teams complete over seventy-five successful projects each year, and have
completed over three thousand in the first half-century of the Graduate School of
Management. The Capstone project is the perfect opportunity for our students to begin
putting their education into action—before they even graduate from the University
As we continue in our fifth decade, we renew our commitment to providing practice-based
management and leadership education. I would like to cordially invite all of you who
are interested in enriching your careers through a practical and rigorous business
education to explore our school further either online or through a visit to campus.
