Happy New (Fiscal) Year!

July is officially the start of our new year, and much like the holiday in January, it’s time to make plans, set goals, and look forward to the next 12 months with anticipation and excitement.

The coming year is an opportunity to rise to the challenges before us. How can we transform lives, and not just education? How can we continue to enrich students, engage in thought-provoking research, and create a better future?

Many of us aren’t natives, and despite the heat, we were drawn to Arizona and the indescribable sense that anything is possible here. Each employee contributes to the legacy of the W. P. Carey School of Business. We were started by visionaries and we continue to evolve. While there are many changes going on this summer, our passion remains.

Let’s take a moment to reflect as we get ready for another great year ahead.

Research and Ideas
Online searches and decision making

Enlightening research conducted by Assistant Professor of Agribusiness Carola Grebitus and her colleague, Assistant Professor of Human Systems Engineering Rod Roscoe, shows that when we search online, we rush, miss prejudice in websites, and seem convinced with scarce variety in our references.

in case you missed itWill stocks will make you rich?

Research from Professor Hendrik Bessembinder finds that individual stocks resemble lottery tickets: A very small percentage of winning stocks have done splendidly, but when gains and losses are tallied up over their lifetimes, most stocks haven’t earned any money at all.

I recently returned from our annual graduation ceremonies in Shanghai, where we welcomed 51 EMBA and 8 DBA graduates to our family of 100,000+ alumni. It's great to be back home, but it's always thrilling to see the impact we're having on another culture and country halfway around the world.
