Student Success Stories - meet some of our graduates and hear what they have to say about Roosevelt University.
Welcome to the Heller College of Business!
Each year is filled with opportunities and challenges. When you have a great team, the opportunities are great and the challenges small. I’m proud to have been the dean of the Heller College for the last 4 years; a time of great change and forward motion for the college. My team consists of all the administrators, clerical staff, faculty and adjuncts in this college.
We are currently accredited by the ACBSP organization and in addition we have joined the UN-PRME (United Nations initiative for the Principles of Responsible Management Education).
There are two departments within the College:
1) Finance/Accounting/Real Estate/MIS (FIRE-A)
2) Human Resource Management/Management/ Marketing/Entrepreneurship (HRMMME)
Within these departments you will find faculty who are gifted teachers, accomplished scholars, and distinguished professionals in their fields. The faculty's pursuit of scholarly and professional activities and their engagement in community, civic and cultural affairs enriches the intellectual lives of our students and the university community as a whole.
To enhance learning opportunities, the college is developing opportunities for students to intern in a variety of ways, to travel overseas, to interact with mentors and to network with business people. This spring we are taking 32 students and faculty to Paris, France for an educational experience at the Sorbonne. In May we will take 8 students and faculty to Krakow, Poland to join Motorola here and in Krakow for an education experience. In fall 2011, we took 8 students and 2 faculty to visit the St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank; the only university invited to attend from outside their region.
Our advisory council has many professional leaders that contribute their time and energy in a variety of ways. One way is through our free mentoring program. All students are invited each semester to meet with a mentor in small groups of up to 10 students. These mentoring meetings provide a way to discuss and learn how executives and professionals in their field conduct themselves and manage their careers. For students who don’t have the time, we provide virtual mentoring through two online systems.
We want you to be successful in your career and to be proud of your college. Please let us know how we can help you plan for your future. In June 2012, we will move into the new Wabash building on the 10,11 and 12th floors. Plan to come see us in our new home!
I hope you will be a part of the Walter E Heller College of Business community as we help prepare the world's next generation of leaders and citizens for the challenges of the twenty-first century.
