Progress and Opportunity
The J. Mack Robinson College of Business marks its 100th anniversary in 2013. This year is also the centennial for Georgia State University which began as an Evening College of Commerce.
As we celebrate this important milestone we are mindful of our distinguished past and are proud of our stature today. In this issue of State of Business, you will learn about the accomplishments of some of our outstanding alumni and the entrepreneurial spirit of our students and faculty.
But, as we celebrate a century of accomplishments, we are also looking ahead to how we will build on this outstanding legacy. In the recent development of the college’s strategic plan, Vision 2020, we began with a clean slate and asked what a business school for today and the future should be. In these pages, we share the details of this process and the resulting plans for the college.
I hope you enjoy this issue of the magazine, and, as always, I welcome your comments.
