The Future is in Our Hands
It is with pride that I share with you this annual report, which highlights a few of the accomplishments and achievements of the faculty, staff, and students of the College of Commerce and Business Administration during the last academic year. This report also documents the impressive list of donors to our college – donors of monetary gifts as well as of time and service. My colleagues join me in thanking you for your contributions, which are essential for the strength and vitality of the college.
I became an official member of the CCBA community in August but began to learn in detail about the college during the year documented here. The enduring strengths of our college are the quality of its students and of its faculty. Because of its long history as a leader in business education, the college has been able to attract influential scholars from around the world to its faculty. They in turn have attracted students of high caliber. CCBA’s large and far-flung network of distinguished alumni and friends is another of its strengths. Creating opportunities for the alumni to be meaningfully engaged with their alma mater is one of our priorities.
I invite you to join with the college as we build on our strong foundation to achieve an even higher level of excellence and distinction.
— Avijit Ghosh
Looking back on 2001, I am struck by the progress of the college in a year marked by transition and change.
Our search for a new dean was an intensive process. The appointment of Avijit Ghosh in March marked the beginning of a new era for our college and one that we are confident will advance our institution. Dean Ghosh is an accomplished administrator, having come to us from the Stern School of Business at New York University where he was most recently vice dean and previously directed the Center for Entrepreneurial Studies. His success as a researcher of marketing and his vow to continue teaching – with his first class scheduled for the spring 2002 semester – bode well for our college.
CCBA academic units implemented changes and enhanced programs during this year. Because of the wide reach of the web, many of our college units are leveraging on-going activities to provide additional educational opportunities for students and heightening their exposure to new business technologies. From a new online certificate program in financial engineering launched by the Department of Finance to an online journal founded by a faculty member in the Department of Economics that is fostering free – and rapid – review of academic research, the college is taking advantage of technology.
Students benefited from exposure to alumni who are leading the way in the evolving and wired business world. A team of executives from eGM, the online wing of General Motors, helped create and teach a course in e-commerce that highlighted strategies for using these new technologies. An e-business executive speaker series was launched this spring, and a plan to create an e-business center of innovation in collaboration with the Illinois MBA Program took shape last fall. The tradition of inviting prominent alumni back to campus to share their knowledge continued with the executive in residence program and with the V. Dale Cozad Lecture. David Kinley Lecturers this year included prominent researchers from Harvard and MIT.
Graduates also have an opportunity to learn and to network by attending events organized by the college. The Commerce Alumni Association’s Spring Luncheon featured Michael Krasny (’75) who spoke on his highly successful business philosophy as founder of CDW Computer Centers. The Illini Center in the Windy City was the site for Commerce Round Tables, twice-a-semester luncheons hosted by several of our prominent alumni and featuring faculty and alumni speakers.
Our faculty’s research and expertise were showcased in The New York Times, The Economist, the Chicago Tribune, and The Chicago Daily Law Bulletin as well as on radio and local and national television. Investiture ceremonies this spring highlighted the contributions of two long-time faculty members: Greg Northcraft was named the Harry J. Gray Professor of Executive Leadership and Ira Solomon became the first Robert C. Evans Distinguished Professor of Accountancy. Business Administration’s Kent Monroe and the late Seymour Sudman were honored with a conference or symposia in their names. This spring many faculty and graduate students were given department- and alumni-awarded teaching and research honors.
The Class of 2001 – almost 1,000 undergraduates strong – are the newest representatives of the college out “in the real world.” We and they are indebted to the staff in the Office of Undergraduate Affairs and in our academic units, who guided and advised the students from their first days on campus through the final steps of evaluating their credentials for graduation ceremonies. Commerce Career Services offered an array of resources that helped class members in their job searches. Placement figures – as well as starting salaries – continue to be outstanding.
Our remarkable undergraduate and graduate scholars juggle classes, extracurricular activities, jobs, volunteer work, and athletics. Each is a credit to our college and to the University of Illinois. Too numerous to mention individually, I can only list a few honors our students added to the list of achievements for the college. Scores of undergraduate scholars were honored at the spring awards banquet. In the MBA program, a first-year student won the award for the best question-and-answer at the Big Ten MBA Case Competition, and another was named “Outstanding New Black MBA,” one of ten nationally. An interdisciplinary team from Illinois that included some MBA students placed second at the Andersen Business Case Change Enablement Student Competition, and, for the second straight year, the Illinois MBA program had students on the interdisciplinary team that emerged victorious from the NASA Means Business Student Competition.
Reflecting on some of the outstanding achievements and successes in 2001 is particularly poignant for me. My retirement in August marked the end of 36 years as an accountancy faculty member and, most recently, as interim dean. It was my privilege to serve as caretaker of the college for eight months following the untimely death of Interim Dean William Bryan in December 2000.

From strength to even greater strength — that is where Campaign Illinois took our college and the great university of which it is part. Publicly launched in 1994 and extended in 1998, this extraordinary effort concluded on December 31, 2000. Over $1.5 billion was raised, tripling the university’s endowment for faculty positions, student financial aid, and academic programs, and providing for the construction and renovation of numerous facilities.
I am proud to say that the benefits to CCBA have been proportionately extraordinary. Through Campaign Illinois we received pledges and donations totaling almost $94 million. Thanks to the generosity of those who made these contributions, we have been able to:
It is with both pleasure and satisfaction that we announce these results. And it is with powerful resolve — to advance the continuing excellence of our college, taking it to significant new heights — that we look forward to working with our alumni, friends, and supporters on new initiatives in the years to come.
Mark Neville, Associate Dean
Development and Alumni Affairs
Good news for fiscal year 2001 (July 1, 2000 – June 30, 2001): CCBA development raised an outstanding $5.9 million dollars on behalf of the college. Gifts to the Annual Fund drive increased by over 9.4% to $1.3 million, and gifts to Investors in Business Education, the highest priority of the dean and the college, increased by 2.2% to more than $726,000.
Gifts to IBE provide support for the college’s prestigious IBE professorships, as well as for student scholarships, faculty research, development of new courses and programs, and publications and communications. The FY 2002 Annual Fund campaign is already underway. We invite you to use the enclosed mailer to make a gift. We assure you that it will make an impact — and that it is very much appreciated.

Do something well and the world will beat a path to your door. In the summer of 2001, the Project Discovery accountancy curriculum was introduced at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore — an innovation made possible by ongoing faculty visits between CBA and NTU. Earlier this year, Dublin City University in Ireland sent a faculty delegation to visit the college and learn more about Project Discovery. The groundbreaking undergraduate curriculum is now in its fourth year of full implementation and the Project Discovery concepts and practices presently are being incorporated into master’s-level accountancy courses at Illinois.
“The Greatest Generation: Surveying Private Ryan,” a study by marketing professor Brian Wansink, surveyed 1,400 veterans of World War II about how memories and experiences from that time affect their attitudes and buying behavior today. Results were presented in a special April program that drew veterans from around the country. Presentations by Commerce faculty and graduate students, on topics ranging from leadership and the effects of combat to how the past affects present buying decisions, provoked a lively response from vets and their families.
Work by economics faculty member Stephen Parente attracted the attention of New York Times columnist Virginia Postrel, who cited his “bold conclusions” in her “Economic Scene” column of May 17. Writing of The Barriers to Riches, which Parente co-authored with Edward Prescott of the University of Minnesota, Postrel said the book presents compelling evidence for free trade, by showing how vested interests in developing countries can block adoption of more productive technologies and more efficient work practices. Published last year by MIT Press, The Barriers to Riches also drew positive press in the December 8 issue of Sound Money.
Being named a University of Illinois Distinguished Teacher/Scholar is a crowning honor in the long, productive, and energetic career of Jim Gentry, IBE Professor of Finance. Widely recognized for the excellence of his case study research and teaching, he has in recent years championed the pedagogy at CBA. A study he undertook three years ago with fellow finance faculty member Michael Dyer provided the first documentation of how students learn in large lecture classes. He has won a host of accolades, including the Commerce Alumni Association Excellence in Graduate Teaching Award — twice.
Students from the MBA's program's Office for Strategic Business Initiatives worked with staff from Deloitte & Touche and students from Engineering, Law, and Library and Information Science to evaluate and catalog more than 600 university technologies for the University Office of Technology Management (OTM). The student-created database of the technologies will be used by OTM to identify the most promising opportunities and initiate feasibility studies for start-up funding or licensing. Four members of the MBA team continued working for OTM during the 2001-2002 academic year. Similar cross-functional, high-tech projects contribute to the program's top-ten ranking on ComputerWorld’s Techno MBA list.
Commerce Career Services
CareerQuest brought first-year MBA students to Chicago for a whirlwind series of career and networking events, including panels on careers in marketing, finance, and management information systems and corporate tours to such disparate companies as The Eli's Cheesecake Company and Bank of America. During lunch students had the opportunity to network with alumni and corporate representatives. Career Services launched other new initiatives this year including a Virtual Career Fair, I-TRAK (a web-based on-campus interview management and registration system), and a 20 percent increased capacity at the Career Fair that lead to record-breaking participation both semesters.
Executive Development Center
Business, American-style, is the focus of the college’s China Program, which has, since its inception in 1993, drawn more than 57 delegations from companies, organizations, and government agencies throughout China. Offered under the auspices of the Executive Development Center, programs vary in length, providing participants with customized curricula taught by CCBA faculty that cover international business management and financial programs. Field trips, seminars with regional and national business leaders, and opportunities to learn about life in the U.S. round out the experience. Among the program’s regular clients are five major banks, including the Central Bank, China’s equivalent of the Federal Reserve Bank.
Few have graduated from Illinois as Bronze Tablet Scholars. Even fewer have been drafted by the National Football League. But one member of the Commerce Class of 2001 did both. Finance major Josh Whitman, who earned his BS in just three and a half years, tried out this fall for the Buffalo Bills, having signed with them as a free agent in the spring. An Academic All-American who compiled an outstanding record as a tight end for the Fighting Illini, Whitman also received an $18,000 postgraduate scholarship from the National Football Foundation and the College Football Hall of Fame. Whitman’s future likely includes another profession where negotiating dangerous turf is a given: law school.
Annual gifts to CCBA in FY01
All gifts to CCBA in FY01
By their nature, gifts of time to CCBA carry no monetary value—something that makes them especially precious. The college could not advance in its mission of excellence in business research, teaching, and service without the esteemed and enthusiastic help of our many university and college board members. These are alumni and friends who give willingly of their time and expertise, playing key roles in organizing fundraising efforts and special events, and participating in the intellectual life of the college as guest lecturers.

In 2001 CCBA was fortunate to have received support totaling more than $1.7 million from almost 300 public and private organizations spanning a range of institutions: public and private companies, financial and legal firms, health care facilities, foundations and other non-profit organizations, and student groups. Institutional support comes in two ways: as direct gifts and as funds that match contributions from individuals. The support of the business community is a particular source of pride for the college.
