Welcome from Dean Ajay Vinze


My name is Ajay Vinze and I’m delighted to join the Robert J. Trulaske Sr. College of Business as Dean and as a member of the Mizzou family. These are both interesting and transformational times in higher
education. A trifecta of forces– technology, innovation and globalization– are pushing boundaries of capabilities and possibilities. Today’s students are
digital natives, preparing for a workforce that is challenging and
changing so rapidly that they must train for jobs that may not even exist as yet. Core business principles from entrepreneurship and leadership to
ethics and empathy are unchanged. The challenge here is to strike just the
right balance. As educators, at Trulaske we plan to take this challenge head-on.
We are creating learning environments that are nimble and responsive to the
new market realities we are all facing. Additionally, we are preparing our
students using a curriculum that ensures that they are globally aware and locally
relevant. Mizzou is a great place to study business. The Trulaske College of
Business was one of the first institutions accredited by AACSB. I’m
proud to be associated with a faculty that includes nationally and
internationally known researchers and scholars. Our programs in accountancy,
finance, marketing and management showcase our strengths with impressive
job placement rates and 100% internship participation. Our students come to
Mizzou looking for quality business education and they leave this land-grant
institution with a business education that gives them a strong sense of self,
ready for whatever comes next. We are now looking forward to a future of great growth and development. Trulaske will be on the forefront of socially responsible
business education and innovation. I will be looking to you all and all our
stakeholders for support and guidance as we take our place among the leading
business schools nationally and internationally. I welcome you to experience the Trulaske College of Business for
yourself. Join us, connect and be a part of the
success.
