Dean’s Welcome

Welcome to Mays Business School. You are joining a university with an exciting and challenging vision and mission, and Mays Business School is such a positive and invigorating community of which to be a part. With over 240 faculty and staff, nearly 6,300 students, and over 64,000 alumni from around the world, Mays Business School is a vibrant learning organization that creates impactful knowledge and develops transformational leaders.

As I approach nearly 20 years of service to Mays Business School, I can assure you that you could not ask for a more collegial and caring group of colleagues than you will have here. Mays has a long history of fostering collaborative partnerships among faculty, staff, students, our alumni network, and the broader university to create communities in which all members feel a sense of belonging and support.

As a member of our team, you will have an important role in Mays Business School’s vision of “Advancing the World’s Prosperity,” which means providing a better future for generations who follow, including quality of life, the environment, and economic systems. You can learn more about your part in fulfilling our vision by reviewing our 2017-2021 Strategic Plan.

I look forward to greeting you with “Howdy” (an Aggie tradition) in the hallways or at one of our upcoming events. If we can assist with your transition here, feel free to reach out to me or any member of our Executive Committee. Again, welcome to Mays Business School.

R. Duane Ireland
Interim Dean
