Dean's Message

This month the College co-sponsored a visit to campus by noted entrepreneur and businessman, N.R. Narayana Murthy, who presented the 21st Beckman Lecture. Murthy, chairman of the board of Infosys Technologies, discussed the future of the software industy in India.

Next month, the College will host a visit by Hatim Tyabji, executive chairman of Bytemobile. Tyabji will give the 2005 Cozad Lecture on Entrepreneurism. Please accept my invitation to join with students, faculty, and staff of the College of Business as we gather on October 11th for his presentation.

The College of Business offers a rich intellectual environment to our students. Distinguished corporate leaders and visionaries such as Murthy and Tyabji also engage with our alumni and members of the community through their public presentations.

If your travels take you to Urbana-Champaign when we have such guests, I hope you will consider joining us. If you are unable to be present, please read the articles on the College website that summarize the thoughts of these business leaders.

Sincerely,

Avijit Ghosh
Dean
