Dear Fairfield Dolan Community,

We are delighted to share some great news with you from the Charles F. Dolan School of Business. This semester we moved into our brand new, 85,000 square-foot facility featuring cutting-edge Finance, Business Analytics, and Ideation Labs. Students are really enjoying the building and the great learning and collaborative spaces it provides.

Dolan faculty have been busy developing innovative curricula and programs with input from alumni and employers, including the newly launched MS in Management which is featured in this issue of the newsletter. To connect with the business community and to develop students professionally, we are engaging employers in multiple ways, including our new Professional-In-Residence Program.

In this issue you’ll also read about our Dean’s Executive Forums, a platform for students to engage with thought leaders in business and society, and Career Night, where students extend their learning and professional development outside of the classroom. We are also gearing up for another Fairfield StartUp showcase, a widely recognized Shark Tank-style competition. An example of the impact of the StartUp program is the success of Candice Peterkin ’20 who was invited to attend the Forbes Under 30 Summit. You will find her story here too, along with the stories of our students taking part in international internships. I hope you will enjoy reading about the recent successes of our School and community.

Zhan Li
Dean and Professor
