2009-2010 Annual Report School of Business Ithaca College School of Business 3 A state-of-the-art green building, an increasingly exciting curriculum, beyond-the-classroom A message from the Interim Dean Connections: Here and Beyond “ We have become increasingly aggressive and deliberate in creating new opportunities for alumni to interact with our students and faculty.” programs that connect students with the real Mark Cordano, Ph.D. world—all this and more occur because of the generosity of our alumni and friends. Through your support, you help deliver what we at Ithaca College know is a first-rate education on a first-name basis. Thank you. Welcome to our first annual report for the Ithaca College School of Business. We are deeply grateful for all that alumni and friends contribute to the growth and development of our students and the institution itself. This is just one means of saying thank you for your gifts of funding, service, ideas, and good wishes. From the inspiring building you have created and the fine education you help to provide and augment, to the careers our students pursue, your impact is extraordinary. Today, effective business education requires greater interaction between students and the business community than ever before. Here in Ithaca, our challenge is to help our students connect with businesses beyond our geographic area. We have become increasingly aggressive and deliberate in finding ways for alumni and others in the corporate community to form new relationships with our students and faculty. Over the past year, we have hosted events in a variety of off-campus settings and have been gratified by the responsiveness of our alumni and the results for our students. These events have produced internship opportunities, taught students how to network, and enhanced prospective employers’ confidence in our students. To expand and formalize these connections, we took another significant step forward this year by establishing the Business Professions Program. Spearheaded by our Business Advisory Council and funded by a core group of dedicated alumni, the comprehensive program will promote professional and career development through alumni and corporate involvement. Our systematic approach to linking students, faculty, and alumni strengthens the school’s relationships with the larger business community and showcases the skill, enthusiasm, and sophistication of our students. We are proud that a team from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) acknowledged this new program as a mark of quality during its site visit last fall. Valuable connections occur every day on campus as students, faculty, and visitors get to know one another. Expanding connections — beyond the classroom, off campus, and after graduation — is vital to our students’ success. With your continuing generosity and guidance, they will leave here confident and well prepared to create a better world. Mark Cordano, Ph.D. Interim Dean Ithaca College School of Business 1 Introducing Our New Dean: Mary Ellen Zuckerman “ I look forward to working with the faculty, staff, students, alumni, and other partners of the School of Business to continue creating an environment of academic excellence and innovation in the field of business education.” Building Toward Sustainability Dr. Mary Ellen Zuckerman Mary Ellen Zuckerman assumed her post as dean of the Ithaca College School of Business on July 1, 2010. “I look forward to working with the faculty, staff, students, alumni, and other partners of the School of Business to continue creating an environment of academic excellence and innovation in the field of business education,’’ said Zuckerman, who came to Ithaca from the School of Business at the State University of New York at Geneseo, where she served as dean from 1999 to 2008. “I want to work with them to continue and accelerate initiatives focused on sustainability — capitalizing on the opportunities provided by the wonderful LEED building, which houses the School of Business — as well as ongoing efforts by the Ithaca College community and those of the surrounding Ithaca community. Finally, I believe the School of Business is well positioned to participate in the Collegewide efforts to provide students with integrated educational experiences.” In 2002, Zuckerman led SUNY Geneseo through its initial accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide. She also established a master’s in accounting program and created and managed the school’s Alumni Connections Council. She holds Ph.D. and M.B.A. degrees from Columbia University and joined the Geneseo faculty in 1985. In 2006, she was awarded the SUNY Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Faculty Service. Our building was designed to put Ithaca College in the forefront of environmental stewardship and promote the highest principles of sustainable design. The Dorothy D. and Roy H. Park Center for Business and Sustainable Enterprise earned its name when it became the world’s first school of business to earn LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) platinum certification for achieving rigorous benchmarks in green building design, construction, and operations. She has held positions as a visiting associate professor of management at McGill University and as a research fellow at the Freedom Forum Media Studies Center. Zuckerman’s research focuses on the development of the magazine industry, the marketing research and advertising industries, and gender and media. She is the author of A History of Popular Women’s Magazines in the United States, 1792–1995 and coauthor of The Magazine in America, 1741–1990. The School of Business enrolls some 700 students in its bachelor of science programs in business administration and accounting and 30 students in its M.B.A. program. The school has 37 faculty members and an administrative staff of eight. n The first business school in the world to achieve LEED platinum certification. Since it opened in 2008, the Park Center for Business and Sustainable Enterprise has had a powerful impact on Ithaca College. A second green building has been completed, and a third is under construction. Across the country, schools such as Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan, the Stanford Graduate School of Business, and MIT’s Sloan School of Management have followed Ithaca’s lead, opening or constructing new green buildings. continued on page 5 Ithaca College School of Business 3 “ Being in the building has made me more aware of the importance of sustainability and environmental responsibility in business.” All these buildings are designed to meet standards the U.S. Green Building Council has set to achieve energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts. The Park Center for Business and Sustainable Enterprise serves as a living laboratory emphasizing sustainability as crucial to business success. Principles and Payoffs 50% of the energy used in the building is from renewable resources... thus reducing energy and water consumption and utility costs. With its expansive glass walls, the Park Center for Business and Sustainable Enterprise provides stunning vistas of Cayuga Lake and the surrounding hills of Tompkins County — and saves on electricity use. “The amount of curtain wall and glass has reduced the use of typical office lighting, thereby reducing electricity use,” said Rick Couture, the College’s associate vice president of facilities. “So in terms of energy consumption, our savings are approaching 30 percent, which is substantial.’’ Kevin Smith — a partner at Robert A.M. Stern LLC, architects for the project — points out that some of the building’s value comes from unexpected places: “It is surprising that a building in a northern climate would benefit from so much daylight and glass. Actually, the energy model showed that a fair amount of well-protected glass would provide improvement in the building’s energy performance. However, the other real benefit is that it’s a wonderful building to be in, and people just like to spend the day there. Even when it’s a gray day, people feel bright and happy with all the views to the outdoors. Those are some of the intangible but important benefits of a sustainable building.” Jennifer Stone, senior associate with Stern, explains that collaboration among College officials, architects, sustainability design consultants, engineers, and construction managers was critical to managing the complexities of producing such a building. “Even though LEED platinum certification was rather rare at the time the concept for the building was revealed, the College had set very high goals and was passionate about achieving them,” she said. “So at every stage, the entire team sat together and worked through the strategic design, construction, and cost decisions to get the result we all wanted, which was to bring the vision from conception to reality.” The resulting 38,800square-foot facility includes a vegetated roof to help control wastewater runoff and provide a thermal cushion against significant temperature fluctuation; extensive use of natural lighting to minimize energy needs; purchase of 50 percent of the electricity from renewable sources; and a storm-water reclamation system for use with the building’s plumbing. Education and Inspiration The students and faculty who use the building experience its benefits every day. Assistant professor Aimee Dars Ellis, passionate about sustainability, has developed an undergraduate elective, Business Sustainability and Social Entrepreneurship. Jeffrey Geyer ’11. “I am proud to be teaching at a business school with a focus on sustainability that is housed in a LEED platinum-certified building,” said Ellis. “We are in a living laboratory where students can see the principles we discuss in action.” Student Jeffrey Geyer ’11 also understands the relationship between the building’s physical form and its impact as a learning space. “It’s clear that the building was made to tie in with the curriculum and the whole business program,” Geyer said. “Being in the building has made me more aware of the importance of sustainability and environmental responsibility in business, and because of that influence, I will probably think more creatively about my future career choices.” Everyone at the School of Business echoes Couture when he said, “Very simply, we are extremely proud of this building.” n Ithaca College School of Business 5 Adelaide Park Gomer: “ Living Laboratory for Social Responsibility” As Ithaca College launched its capital campaign for construction of new buildings to house the business school and the administration, I suggested I would help to secure funding if one of the buildings was built “green.” The business school was designated as the sustainable model, and my mother, Dorothy Park, granted the lead gift, which ultimately amounted to over half of the eventual cost of the building. Our rationale was to put Ithaca College at the forefront of sustainability education, and our purpose was twofold: 1. To be the first LEED platinum-certified business school in the world, serving People, plant, and prosperity as a model for other institutions of higher learning. Since the designation of the Park Center for Business and Sustainable Enterprise as LEED platinum, the Peggy Ryan Williams Center has been recognized as LEED platinum, and the Athletics and Events (A&E) Center is aspiring to be LEED certified. 2. To encourage the business curriculum to reflect the building that houses it and make the building a living learning laboratory. As a philanthropist engaged in environmental work, I am acutely aware of the decimation Sustainability in Management Education: Research, Resonance, and Results of our planet. It is my belief that the only effective way to reverse this destructive path is to engage the corporate community in developing sustainable business practices. As a former teacher, I believe we can accomplish this by educating young business students about socially responsible business practices. Therefore, I believe that Ithaca College students should learn how to seek business success and still protect the earth and the health of the people, wildlife, soil, plants, and oceans on it. To help foster these ideals, students should learn to embrace and practice socially responsible investing in a space created specifically for that use — the Center for Trading and Analysis of Financial Instruments. There, students should learn that the bottom line signifies more than money, and that an investment portfolio should include the three interlocking principles of sustainability: planet, people, and profit. The green building at Ithaca College named after my mother and father will be a beacon for other business schools. Housing the intended curriculum, the Park Center for Business and Sustainable Enterprise will provide a model for business schools everywhere. n Everyone benefits from working in the Park Center, a living laboratory of sustainability. Aimee Dars Ellis interviewed for teaching positions when Ithaca College was building the Park Center for Business and Sustainable Enterprise. “It was certainly a selling point for me,” she said. The building and the school’s focus on sustainability helped persuade her to join the School of Business faculty. Ellis developed her commitment to sustainability through her research. While teaching a business ethics class at Arizona State University, she became one of the first in her field of organizational behavior to research employees’ reactions to corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs that required their participation. She studied employee attitudes to volunteer programs, blood drives, and recycling and found that their involvement in these activities plays a significant role in the success of any business. “Employees care deeply about participating in CSR programs, and those programs provide significant benefit to organizations, even if they don’t necessarily affect the bottom line,” Ellis said. She presented the results in a paper to the Academy of Management and was named a finalist for the prestigious Newman Award, bestowed upon the top three papers based on a dissertation. As an assistant professor of management at the School of Business, Ellis has developed Business Sustainability and Social Entrepreneurship, an undergraduate elective. She incorporates her research interests into the curriculum, so her students can learn core marketing concepts and ideology from a fresh perspective. Through their courses and projects, guided by faculty members like Ellis, students develop a superior understanding of environmentally sound and socially responsible business practices. Everyone at the School of Business benefits from working in the Park Center for Business and Sustainable Enterprise, a living laboratory of sustainability. With passionate teachers in an enriched environment, IC shows students how to consider business through this prism of social responsibility. n Visit www.ithaca.edu/business/ connections/sustainability_ management.php to read more. Ithaca College School of Business 7 “ Every time I come back to campus, it feels like home.” David Rowitt '78 Alumni Couple Finds Rewards in Giving Back Dave and Nancy Shapiro Rowitt Dave Rowitt ’78 and Nancy Shapiro ’74 first crossed paths at Ithaca College in fall 1973 when she led a campus tour that he took as a prospective student. They met again on a blind date in 1982 and, a year to the day later, Nancy and Dave married. Their commitment includes their devotion to Ithaca College. “We both feel very strongly about the College,” Nancy said, “and we feel that giving back is a responsibility for alums.” In 2008 they proposed to fund a new course in the School of Business on managing personal finances. The class teaches students the concepts of individual financial decision making. “It was exactly what we were passionate about — financial literacy,” Dave said. “As a kid growing up, my grandfather always talked to me about the importance of investing, specifically through Turning passion for financial literacy into learning opportunities for students. stocks. It was he who inspired me by giving me my first shares of stock and watching them grow.” The class provides students the knowledge to manage their personal finances and helps them develop the judgment to use that knowledge in making sound choices, says Joseph Cheng, associate professor of finance and international business: “This class adds a lot of wisdom, and, therefore, adds a lot of value to the students’ education.” For Amanda Kessler ’08, the course improved her ability to deal with realworld financial situations. “I was able to handle my taxes confidently for the first time on my own out of college because of what I learned in the class,” she said. “I also had a better understanding of the value of starting my 401(k) even if my contributions were small at first, which is what we learned in the course: start early and build a good foundation slowly.” That’s just why the Rowitts made this commitment to the curriculum. Dave graduated from the School of Business and in 1983 received an M.B.A. in management from Fairleigh Dickinson University. After a career in IT, most recently at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, he is seeking a position as a business analyst in the Orlando, Florida, area. He says he took his own advice — investing wisely and being financially responsible — so they are able to live comfortably until a new job opportunity arises for him. “We would like to educate as many students as possible — both business and nonbusiness majors — in the area of finance, so they will make wise decisions and understand what they are doing,’’ said Dave. “Providing this course for students helps them understand how to save money and keep their investments accumulating throughout the years, with the goal in mind of retiring and having a comfortable life.” Nancy has a degree in music education from Ithaca and received a master of music degree in music performance from the University of Miami in 1980. She taught instrumental music in public schools for several years before retiring to raise the couple’s two children, who are now grown. Recently she rekindled her musical training and became a sub for the Spirit of America Fife and Drum Corps at Epcot at Walt Disney World. The Rowitts are extremely happy with Ithaca College and its leaders’ vision for the future. Said Dave, “We are pleased with the growth and development of the College, not only for students, but also the physical changes on campus. We are both very proud to contribute to that.” n “ I was able to handle my taxes confidently because of what I learned in the class.” Amamda Kessler '08 Ithaca College School of Business 9 Luncheons, roundtables, and financial planning workshops augment classroom learning. Business Professions Program: To Counsel, Coach, and Mentor The Business Advisory Council listened when it heard students raise concerns about job preparedness. And after two years of planning and fund-raising, the Business Professions Program begins this fall. The comprehensive career and professional development program will encourage students to take advantage of resources on campus and will involve them from their first semester through graduation — and beyond. The program will connect students with alumni through a range of networking events, workshops, class presentations, mentoring, and developing and communicating internship opportunities: Business Professions Program Donors: School of Business alumni responded swiftly and generously to the invitation to create the Business Professions Program. We are grateful to these donors: Neil D. Aaron '88 and Gayle Libson Aaron '88 Paul and Wendy Aglietti, Parents '11 Lawrence M. Alleva '71 and Susan A. Alleva Philip J.

Wolfgruber '72 and Kim A. White • A “dress for success” event and an etiquette luncheon will focus on practical matters to help students develop skills and confidence. • A business ethics roundtable and financial planning workshop will augment the curriculum with discussions of business-related topics. • A young alumni panel and other alumni-student events will allow students to develop personal and professional connections, and networking skills. In these difficult economic times, the program serves a critical need, said Business Advisory Council member Wendy Bahlav ’78, director of investor relations at Cura Capital Management: “It is important for the students to be prepared for their job searches. Providing the best possible tools and dedicated resources in the business school gives them a leg up as they enter a very competitive job market.” This initiative began in fall 2008, when the school’s Business Advisory Council determined such a program was needed to prepare, counsel, coach, and mentor students as they enter the workplace. The School of Business studied successful programs at other business schools, developed a plan for its own program, and launched a targeted fund-raising effort in October 2009. Alumni eagerly stepped “ Do a lot of research about the company you are going to visit. … I mean getting out in the market and really experiencing the product or service. I’m most impressed with a candidate who does this.’’ Stewart Leonard Jr. '76 forward. “They heard the message and supported it, and virtually every person we asked gave generously,” said interim dean Mark Cordano. “In a little more than six months, the BAC raised more than $250,000 to fund the program for two years.” career industry, if they have specific skill sets and they understand the remuneration for those skill sets, then they are likely to be happy graduates rather than frustrated graduates.” In April 2010, Bethany Kilgore was hired to become the first professional development coordinator. She holds a master of education degree in cultural studies and was assistant director of experiential education and mentoring at Xavier University in Cincinnati. An alumni and corporate relations coordinator will be hired to maintain current relationships with alumni and organizations, and forge new relationships. Investor Phil Anderson ’89 says the Business Professions Program comes at a crucial time for students: “If students are oriented toward a certain And he says the program will make Ithaca students more valued in the workplace: “Employers want employees who can improve the performance of their businesses. As a businessman, if I can find someone who is trained and has specific knowledge to help me in my business, then that person can add value to the business right away.” n If you would like to become active in our professional network, please contact Bethany Kilgore, professional development coordinator, at email@example.com or 607-274-3680. “ Providing the best possible tools and dedicated resources gives [students] a leg up as they enter a very competitive job market.” Wendy Bahlav '78 Ithaca College School of Business 11 Students and Alumni: Meaningful Connections for All Education at the School of Business is not just for current students. Education continues for alumni, who are as important to preparing students for the business world as are our faculty and staff. Students benefit greatly from opportunities to connect with the business community—opportunities that alumni generously provide. Students who participate in internships and networking events not only practice the skills they need to succeed but also open doors to future careers. As alumni help connect students to their organizations, they find meaning and value in reconnecting with the school, expand their own networks, and rediscover how Ithaca College has influenced their lives. Education is a lifelong experience. Connecting Interns Through Corporate Relations A summer internship often leads to a job. A year ago, Alicia Marchant ’10 completed an internship with Liberty Mutual that ended with a job offer. She’s now a sales representative for Liberty Mutual in Ithaca. Students frequently receive job offers after their internships because the qualities recruiters look for in interns are the same as those they seek in potential employees. “Corporations are putting more energy into their interns now than they have ever before,” Marchant said. “They know that these are the people who are going to stick with them and know the most about the company from the very beginning.” Liberty Mutual’s internships involve a mentoring system. Students team up with current sales representatives, accompany them into Women in Business Network: A Path to Success meetings, and establish a relationship that helps them learn and grow. “It’s about building a relationship and building contacts with people,” Marchant said. “The business school has done a great job of setting up internships and maintaining a dialogue with Liberty Mutual.” The company is also pleased. Said Duane Palmiter of Liberty Mutual: “Our involvement with the business school provides clear opportunities for its students.” n Read more about Liberty Mutual’s relationship with Ithaca College at www.ithaca. edu/ business/connections/ connecting_interns.php. At Ithaca, Heidi Manheimer ’85 said, “I learned and honed many of the skills one needs in order to be successful in any job.” And she’s delighted to share her experiences with today’s female students. Manheimer stressed these skills for success: selfdiscipline, problem-solving, teamwork, and the ability to see the big picture and see that picture from many different angles. Manheimer, chief executive officer for Shiseido Cosmetics America, was one of four graduates on the first Women in Business Panel at Ithaca College’s New York Network Night. More than 200 participants — current students, graduates, and other professionals — attended the event in January 2010 to hear her and Carol McCann ’80, director and co-owner of Grandview Island Productions; Tuti B. Scott ’84, president and founder of Imagine Philanthropy; and Amy Willstatter ’80, founder and president of Bridge to Hollywood & Broadway. Panelists discussed their careers and the experience of the recent recession and then mingled with participants and exchanged contact information. “This younger cohort will soon enter the workplace with tremendous enthusiasm and a bounty of new ideas,” said Manheimer. “I feel lucky to be in a position now where I can give back to young people about to embark on their own careers.” Said participant Allison Walker ’10: “Sometimes it’s hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel when it comes to working toward our degrees. It’s a breath of fresh air to meet someone who has followed the same path and is successful years after graduation.” n Read more at www.ithaca. edu/business/connections/ wibn_nyc.php. Alum at Merrill Lynch Initiates Successful Internships Grateful for the start that Ithaca College gave him, John Olson ’76 wants to provide similar opportunities for today’s students. Last summer, Olson, a wealth management adviser and senior vice president of investments at Merrill Lynch, sponsored internships at Merrill Lynch for two IC students. “Ithaca was very important in getting me started in business,” he said. “If I can help students through internships and making introductions to people in the industry, I will.” Olson selected two rising seniors as his recent interns, Rob Crawford ’10 and Brent Byrne ’10. They spent the summer of 2009 in New York City conducting research, creating spreadsheets to analyze and track money managers’ performance, and searching for stocks to include in Olson’s discretionary portfolio. Said Byrne, “I felt very content at Merrill Lynch. It’s where I feel like I belong. I’m a competitive individual motivated by the rush of the city.” Strengthened by this experience, Crawford and Byrne successfully secured positions after graduation: Crawford is a research analyst for Manning and Napier, an investment adviser based in Fairport, New York, and Byrne is with Alliance Bernstein, the investment firm headquartered in New York City. Olson has continued his commitment to Ithaca students. For summer 2010, he offered an internship to Iuliana Dudi ’11. n Read more at www.ithaca.edu/ business/connections/giving_ back.php. “The experience was amazing,” said Crawford. “I gained much more knowledge and skill, and I’m very passionate about the financial markets and their importance. The internship just solidified my reasons to be in this industry.” Ithaca College School of Business 13 Business Link Connects Students with Alumni, Face-to-Face A new organization on campus is building closer relationships between current students and alumni. Business Link, a student-led initiative, uses networking events and social media to provide students with some of the skills and connections they need to secure internships and jobs. At the first Business Link IC Face-to-Face event, held in August 2009, 12 alumni and 15 students gathered in Manhattan for an alumni panel discussion and networking. Among the companies represented were Dow Jones, Citigroup, Ogilvy Action, and Merrill Lynch. Jeffrey Bush ’10 says he gained self-confidence at the event and learned about networking, professionalism, and the ability to start and carry on a conversation with a new contact. Putting those lessons to use, he contacted an Ithaca alumnus and his resume was passed along to a friend of Sharing bonds with alumni create lasting relationships. Essential Resources for Important Initiatives that new contact. “This path has ingrained in me the importance of networking and persistence,” said Bush. Host Bill Durant ’86, who manages financial services corporate accounts for Dow Jones, understands the value of networking first hand. After being laid off, he reached out to a vice president of his former employer. “I found out that he had obtained a position with another company, and he assisted me in getting an interview and an eventual offer,” said Durant. Business Link will continue to sponsor events that connect alumni with today’s students, so they can market their strengths. Durant is enthusiastic about what these students offer to potential employers: “Ithaca students are intelligent, have great communication skills, have high initiative, exude confidence, and have great energy, spirit, and enthusiasm.” n Read more at www.ithaca.edu/ business/connections/linking_ students_alumni.php.
