Lawrence Technological University’s College of Management will be renamed the College of Business and Information Technology, effective July 1, 2018.
Bahman Mirshab, dean of the college, said the new name better reflects the range and scope of LTU’s programs and the unique strengths of being part of a technological university. “Our new name takes in to account the focus of our programs within the dynamic technological environment provided here at Lawrence Tech,” said Mirshab. “We prepare leaders for many industries but in particular, many of our students aspire to careers in complex and rapidly evolving high tech companies and organizations.
In February, the College received confirmation of accreditation by the prestigious AACSB International, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. AACSB is a hallmark of excellence achieved by only 5 percent of the world’s business schools. “LTU’s College of Business and Information Technology, enhanced with the AACSB accreditation, provides remarkable opportunities for students,” said LTU President Virinder Moudgil. “We look forward to the continued growth of our business programs.”
The College’s mission statement reads: “Using a model of theory and practice, we prepare a diverse body of domestic and international students for successful careers in a variety of organizations through interdisciplinary educational programs that emphasize analytical, technological, ethical, team work, global management, and interpersonal skills essential in an interconnected world economy. Faculty engagement in scholarly activity and service to the University, the profession, and the community complements our primary commitment to teaching and service excellence.”
