Strategic Plan: School of Business
In the Spring of 2017, The State University of New York, College at Old Westbury, School of Business [SOB] began a strategic planning process with the goal to “provide access and support to empower our students with the knowledge, skills, and values to think critically, communicate effectively, and act responsibly achieved through a committed faculty devoted to teaching excellence and relevant scholarship.” Achieving this goal would enhance the learning experience for the students and further advance the School’s goal of attaining AACSB International accreditation.
In consultation with key stakeholders, including students, faculty, alumni, local business leaders, and a review of AACSB standards & best practices, the SOB Accreditation Council developed a Strategic Plan with three major goals and objectives that was unanimously approved by the Faculty. They are: provide quality programs in business education, strengthen, grow and promote programs, and increase student success.
The SOB Faculty has decided to review the five-year Strategic Plan on an annual basis and roll it forward. The latest annual review was carried out in Fall 2018, to monitor metrics and adjust strategies based on internal and external changes to achieve the goals and objectives.
