Hello Pointers!

It’s been an exciting and busy year for the School of Business and Economics! It was just announced that Sentry Insurance presented UW-Stevens Point with the largest donation in the university’s 122-year history. The gift of $4 million will endow two new faculty positions, including one in SBE, and create a new major in data analytics. 

Chancellor Bernie Patterson said it well, “This news is vote of confidence in how UW-Stevens Point is preparing students for changing needs in the business world.” 

We are thrilled to be a part of this historical moment and are extremely excited to begin the new degree in data analytics in the fall of 2016.
 
And that’s just the largest news, there are many other exciting things happening so here are just a couple more ... The AACSB accreditation site visit will be occurring this April. This is the final phase of our long journey to become accredited.
 
We have started a new tradition this spring called “Kickstart Your Career.” This event series was sponsored by Northwestern Mutual Insurance and has been so successful in helping our student prepare to transition from students to young professionals in the workplace.

Snapshots
The UW-Stevens Point School of Business and Economics (SBE) has made great leaps in recent years. It still offers the same educational foundation many of its proud alumni reflect back on, but the school has grown and evolved. Since 2008, increased demand and new course offerings have resulted in a 30 percent increase in student credit hours. And the number of majors has increased by roughly 60 percent during that period. That growth has created a great deal of excitement and opened doors to new possibilities — notably accreditation. Read about the exciting changes in the new SBE viewbook.
