You might notice this issue of Baylor Business Review looks a little different. That’s because we have a lot to commemorate as the Hankamer School of Business celebrates its centennial.
That’s right, the Business School is officially 100 years old! Of course, a lot has happened over the past century. Roughly 200 students were registered at the Business School in the fall of 1923, while last year, we taught more than 4,500 undergraduate and graduate students. The earliest classes were conducted on the first floor of Carroll Library. Now we have the entire 275,000-square-foot Paul L. Foster Campus for Business and Innovation.
Through it all, the Business School has come to be known for its high-quality education and world-renowned thought leadership, all while retaining our Christian mission. In this issue, we explore the history of the Business School, revisit each decade through the eyes of alumni and former professors, and reflect on the purposeful research conducted by award-winning faculty.
I am excited to participate in this once-in-a-lifetime celebration and hope you can join us over the next few years as we look to the next century of Baylor Business.
William E. Crenshaw Endowed Dean, Hankamer School of Business
