Isenberg faculty have secured a national reputation as thought leaders and advisors to industry. Adept in both the classroom and research, they excel in operations and quality management, alternative investments, data analytics, entrepreneurship, sport marketing, business leadership, and many other areas.
“We are living in an age of acceleration with the rate of technological change increasing,” says Anne Massey. “While the future of work calls for technical skills, it also demands an understanding of the human and ethical sides of management and leadership.” Isenberg’s new dean, who joins the school officially this month, has focused on aligning academic programs with the technical, social, and cultural changes happening outside campus walls throughout her career, and she says she’s excited to join a school where multi-disciplinary programs, industry partnerships, and student-led team projects are already the norm.
