Kathy’s Point: Our Nebraska Business Community Shares Creative Solutions to Real-World Problems

Kathy’s Point: Our Nebraska Business Community Shares Creative Solutions to Real-World Problems
Dean Kathy Farrell engages with members of the Nebraska Business community during Glow Big Red: 24-Hours of Husker Giving, held Feb. 16-17. Through the generosity of alumni and friends, the college provides new experiences for students to challenge themselves and discover brave new innovations to help solve real-world problems.

It’s been said that innovation is anything, but business as usual. However, at Nebraska Business, our students start challenging themselves on day one. Encouraged to ask bold questions, be inclusive and look to the future, our students collaborate to find creative solutions to real-world problems in the classroom, within student organizations and through the many experiences offered at Nebraska.

This environment starts with our faculty and staff, who exemplify our Start Something spirit. In February, we launched two new online graduate certificates – in financial analytics and sales excellence. This brings our online graduate certificate programs to 10. Additionally, Lindsay Thomsen, assistant professor of practice in management and director of business development for the Center for Entrepreneurship, who joined the Center for Entrepreneurship this semester, hit the ground running to help students start a Franchise Club. The new group invited notable franchisers to come share their stories and are helping build momentum for the new franchising class offered in the fall.

Our newsletter stories this month also showcase some of our latest innovations at Nebraska Business:

Thanks to all who donated during Glow Big Red: Huskers 24-Hours of Giving, Feb. 16-17. Your generosity makes it possible for us to provide these opportunities for students and host events like the sold-out Women Lead 2022 Conference, a collaboration with the College of Law, held March 4.

Together, we do big things. We are Nebraska Business.
