Highly ranked world-class faculty teach sixteen undergraduate programs in business, accounting and digital forensics, six full-time MBA options and four graduate programs in accounting. Faculty have received more than $10 million in grants and funded research – the highest among all business schools in the U.S.

Twenty student-run School of Business clubs and organizations, many established by students, offer extra-curricular education.

The school’s strong pipelines to the business community allow the majority of our students to be placed in jobs before graduation and have access to top executives in leading firms.

School of Business alumni become a powerful network of leaders truly shaping the business world.

      Information Security Beliefs and Privacy Linked to Perceived Quality of Patient Care

      According to a study conducted by digital forensics professor Victoria Kisekka, patients are more likely to positively rate their care when they trust that healthcare providers are taking care of their data. Patients do not see protection of their health information and privacy as disconnected from the overall care provided by the institution.

      The study, “The Effectiveness of Health Care Information Technologies: Evaluation of Trust, Security Beliefs and Privacy as Determinants of Health Care Outcomes,” was published in the Journal of Medical Internet Research in April.
