A Message to Prospective Students from Dean Peter Brews
Changing Lives Through Education
The Moore School prepares graduates who are ready for today and tomorrow’s business challenges. Students work hard, are held accountable for high quality work, and enter (or re-enter) the workforce academically and professionally prepared to immediately contribute to the organizations that employ them. Always evolving to meet business and professional demands, our world-class research faculty and expert clinical teaching faculty, supported by Moore School staff, centers, alumni, and corporate partners are responsible for your education and its outcomes.
However, you too are responsible for your educational outcomes, so expect to be challenged as you prepare for your future in our classrooms.
Because we serve more than 6,100 students, the school’s breadth and depth afford excellence across many domains, most notable being the wide range of academic programs and courses you may select from. Further, our breadth offers full-time students many opportunities for experiential learning through internships, team-based projects, and study abroad, as well as providing staff to advise and guide from start to end of your academic career so you possess the professionalism recruiters demand.
The Moore School provides a rigorous, demanding education that gives students the opportunity to become data proficient, analytically capable, and functionally grounded, equipped as well with the soft skills needed to engage in high-value, complex 21st-century work. Leading-edge business professionals with data and analytical proficiency are in strong demand across the United States, and with business analytics concentrations or certificates offered to both graduate and undergraduate students, you will have the opportunity to leave our school ready to compete at the highest level.

For Undergraduate Students
Moore School undergraduates have remarkable choices that prepare them for a broad range of business careers. In addition to our No.1-ranked international business program, our more than 5,300 undergraduates have options to complete a top-ranked operations and supply chain management program or scholar’s programs in finance or marketing, or they could master the intricacies of sales through our Center for Sales Success, or complete a risk management and insurance program housed in one of 20 Global Centers for Insurance Excellence. In fact, our heralded international business majors shine because their international business coursework is combined with academic work in other majors, in finance, accounting, marketing, or other business disciplines. Most importantly, their jobs typically derive from these required second majors.
The Moore School may also be the first business school in the country to require all 5,300+ undergraduates to complete work in its just-opened Data Lab. In demanding capstone projects using real-world business data offered through the lab, students mostly in their sophomore year are tested on their ability to extract, clean, load, analyze and visualize large, real-world datasets. They learn to use R to perform basic analytics and have the opportunity to use SQL for database management and Power BI to visualize and report data, all applicable as students complete majors in their junior and senior years.
I encourage you to contact our academic and program leaders to learn more about our programs.
Leaders of our undergraduate programs, our International MBA and one-year MBA, our Professional MBA, our Master of Accountancy, our Master of Arts in Economics, our Master of Human Resources, our Master of International Business and our Ph.D. programs look forward to speaking with you.
Further, I invite you to read more about our core values of excellence, integrity, teamwork and resilience and how staying true to these ensures the Moore School achieves its purpose of changing lives through education.
