How we excel
Innovative teaching: Our department is home to some of the most innovative programming in CBA and on campus. We believe that unique, hands-on experiences provide students with the best opportunities to engage and learn. The Capstone Cup is an award-winning semester-long competition involving all senior business majors and housed within our department. Many of our faculty also lead the capstone experience for our MBA program, in which students complete a real consulting project for a local start-up or non-profit
Research portfolio: Our faculty develop new knowledge related to building organizations and leaders. We publish in the top management journals including Academy of Management Journal, Strategic Management Journal, Organization Science, and Journal of Management. Additionally, our faculty have been awarded funding from the Department of Defense and the Fulbright Program and have been invited lecturers all over the world in places such as France, Slovenia, and Canada. The Koraleski CAB LAB is a cutting-edge research lab developed and run by faculty from our department. Our efforts in these areas provide students with unique opportunities to get involved in this research as research participants, lab workers, or graduate assistants. Additionally, through faculty mentorship, our management students receive funding to pursue their own research through the FUSE and GRACA programs at UNO.Community engagement: Our department engages with the community in ways like no other school in the region. Our advisory board keeps us on the cutting edge of management practice. We use our vast alumni network here in the Omaha metro to work with local businesses, government, and nonprofits. Our faculty are part of our community’s fabric, serving as speakers, consultants, and board members for local organizations. We leverage these connections for our students. The Capstone Cup brings the boardroom to the classroom by hosting members of the local business community to serve as judges.
