Director's Message

A portrait of Greg Filbeck, the new director of the Black School of Business at Penn State Berhend

Another exciting academic year has drawn to a close for the Black School of Business. Our International Business major was recently named the No. 1 program of its kind by, and we were once again named to U.S. News and World Report’s annual list of Best Part-time MBA programs. Starting this fall, we will expand from one to twelve Bloomberg terminals for our students’ use—and one of these terminals will be located in Trippe Hall, the home of our Global Boarders program.

In this issue of Business Briefs are a number of recent highlights from across the school. This year, with strong support from our Business Advisory Board, we launched two new strategic initiatives to obtain funding for professional designations and our annual spring business trip. More than 110 faculty and staff members and friends of the Black School of Business attended our annual spring banquet.

We have much to celebrate as our programs continue to grow. We thank each of you for your continued support.

Dr. Greg Filbeck
Director, Black School of Business
