GW In Brief

School of Business and Public Management changes name

The School of Business and Public Management recently announced that it shortened its name to the School of Business, following a year-long self review of the school.

Faculty members who conducted the review created a strategic plan for the school for the next five years. Many recommended initiatives will be introduced in a gradual manner, the recent change only being in the name.

Susan Phillips, dean of the School of Business, said one reason for the change was the department of public administration’s move to the School of Public Policy and Public Administration last semester.

She said officials plan for the school to have a “more global focus” in the future but will still teach public policy and its relation to business.
