The Lorry I. Lokey Graduate School of Business educates ethical and socially responsible organizational leaders. Our graduates have the strategic perspective, business knowledge, and leadership and management skills to deliver strong organizational performance while mindfully making a positive impact on society and the environment.
As a business school, we believe it is our responsibility to prepare leaders who will be able to harness the power of organizations across all sectors—business, nonprofit, government, and social enterprise—to create value in a way that is responsible and beneficial to society today and in the future.
To achieve this goal, we emphasize in our teaching and learning, research and practice, the pillars of socially responsible leadership—ethical decision making and governance, social and community accountability, diversity and inclusion, and environmental sustainability. Our focus on social responsibility leads us to cultivate an integrative perspective across disciplines and functional areas of business and to build partnerships with organizations that share similar values.
Our commitment to social responsibility encompasses and expands upon our school's founding vision to prepare women for business leadership. Today, we have built a vibrant coeducational community that welcomes all genders. We are distinguished among business schools by the rich diversity of identities, perspectives, and experiences that our students bring to enhance our programs and classroom experience.
In pursuing our mission, our faculty members are dedicated to delivering excellence in teaching, mentoring students, and creating a collaborative and personalized learning environment in which students are challenged to perform at their highest levels.
