CBPM eNewsletter: Summer 2022 Edition (Aug. 12, 2022)

by Jeonghwan (Jerry) Choi 2022. 8. 12.



Message from the Dean

The spring semester was an exciting time of innovation and engagement at the College of Business and Public Management (CBPM). Hundreds of CBPM students presented their own research projects at Kean Research Days and one of our own faculty members — Professor Min Chung Han — was recognized as Kean’s Faculty Research Mentor of the Year. Congratulations, Dr. Han!
 
Providing an innovative curriculum is one of the College’s four strategic goals. Faculty and students together took experiential learning to a whole new level this spring by applying their business expertise to develop and present strategic solutions to representatives of the NFL's New York Jets. Kean students impressed the Jets executives with how they approached the projects and delivered top-quality results.

You may recall that last year the College hired 17 new faculty members. I am excited to announce that 10 more full-time faculty will be joining us this fall. These additions bring new ideas and research opportunities that keep CBPM vibrant and builds on the world-class reputation of the University.

It is a great time to be a Cougar, and I hope that you will find opportunities to be part of the great things that are happening at the College and on campus.

Criminal Justice Distinguished Speaker Series: NJ State Police Colonel Callahan

 

Colonel Patrick Callahan (right) from the New Jersey State Police (NJSP) kicked off the Criminal Justice Distinguished Speaker Series with an engaging discussion about his career from patrol officer to head of the NJSP.

Callahan shared his personal insights and experiences to illustrate exactly what the NJSP does, pointing out that they are much more than highway patrol officers. He explained how they often go to other states and countries to assist during emergencies, including the recent hurricane in Puerto Rico. Callahan also offered information about the police academy program and explained the specialty areas students could pursue. 
 
Students asked many questions about career options and how to get started in the field.

Dean’s Forum Welcomes Entrepreneur Extraordinaire

 

The spring edition of the Dean’s Forum event focused on entrepreneurship. Chieh Huang, the co-founder of boxed.com, is a globally recognized entrepreneur who built his company from a startup in his parent’s garage to a major publically traded internet seller of consumer products. 

Huang is an innovator, a serial entrepreneur and a philanthropist. He personally pays for the college tuition of his full-time employees’ children, recognizing that he wouldn’t be where he is today if not for the education he received.

He has been named to Business Week’s “50 People to Watch,” Goldman Sachs’ “100 Most Intriguing Entrepreneurs” and Entrepreneur magazine’s “50 Most Daring Entrepreneurs.”

In the forum, Huang shared honest insights about his journey from college to career as well as his many entrepreneurial startups.
