You're Here — Where Business is Personal

A letter from the dean

Dean Amy Hillman, Portrait

I’ve always thought that the old adage, “It’s not personal; it’s business,” was crazy. What’s not personal about business? If you don’t get hired, if you’re passed over for a promotion, if you’re laid off — it feels very personal. So does getting a supply contract or having it renewed. And whether you receive world-class customer service or lousy service, you feel it. Would you want employees who don’t think business was personal? Would anyone want a co-worker, relationship manager, or salesperson who didn’t think of you — and treat you — like a person? The adage has it backward. Business is personal. And so is business education. That’s what we’re all about at the W. P. Carey School and why this school is so special to all of us.
