Dear Friends of Price College,
Welcome to our redesigned Newsletter. We are excited to share the latest news from the Price College of Business. As our new strategic plan comes into focus over the coming weeks and months, please watch as this bi-monthly email evolves to reflect our new focus.
Strategic Planning Update
Since I announced our new strategic planning effort in February, our consulting partner, Juniper, and a team of talented students from our own Ronnie K. Irani Center for the Creation of Economic Wealth, have recently completed a rigorous and forward-looking external analysis of our competitive environment and an internal analysis of our strengths and limitations. This involved 24 in-depth interviews with key stakeholders, a survey sent to over 1600 members of the Price College community, a competitive benchmarking exercise and a review of trends in higher education and business schools.
The resulting SWOT analysis will inform our choices about our desired vision for Price College, and the strategic priorities, objectives and initiatives we must pursue to realize this vision. With an additional survey and feedback sessions planned for April and May, we’ll begin drafting a strategic plan, which will be reviewed, refined, and elaborated over the course of May and June. Our goal is to have a completed plan in early July. Please stay tuned in case we contact you to participate in this important initiative. If you’ve already contributed, let me say “thank you” for helping to build a brighter future for Price College and our stakeholders.
Internships & Job Opportunities
While our students have shown incredible resiliency and commitment to learning in the face of the pandemic, their opportunities to use and apply what they’ve learned have been diminished. Fewer employers are recruiting from OU and fewer organizations are offering internships this year because of the economic fallout of COVID.
Here’s how you may be able to help. If you influence or manage hiring in your organization, please consider Price College students for internships and our graduates for full-time employment. Even if you can hire one Price graduate or extend one internship offer to a Price student, it will make a difference. You can’t go wrong hiring students from Price College. With your help, they can put their education to work while delivering value to your organization. If you’d like to learn more about how you can help, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for considering our students, and for your continued support of the Price College of Business.
