GONZAGA UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION
Dean’s Letter Greetings from Jepson Center! The 2016-17 academic year is off to a great start! We are excited to bring you the fall issue of the Gonzaga University School of Business Administration Digest. We have a lot to share about our business school. Increased competition continues to impact higher education and business schools are not exempt from the effects of economic, technological, sociocultural, and demographic changes. Despite external environments being characterized by volatility and intensity, I am happy to say we are thriving. » EXCELLENCE marks what we do. We are wrapping up our re-accreditation review. We are one of only approximately 185 business schools worldwide to hold joint AACSB accreditation in business and accounting. One indicator of our excellence is enrollment. More and more students are seeking a business education from our school. Our undergraduate and graduate enrollments continue to grow. Once students are here, they accomplish many things. Whether it’s placement, competitions, or pass rates, our students excel. » Our ENGAGEMENT efforts continue to pick up speed. We want our students, staff, and faculty to “get outside” the walls of the Jepson Center and we want individuals from “outside” our building to join the activities of the business school. Advisory boards, networking events, site visits, guest lectures and speakers, career days, and just getting a cup of coffee are just some of the ways we are engaging with others. » Our Jesuit legacy continues to drive what we do and we look for INSPIRATION in all we do. A wonderful example of this is our work with a local Catholic grade school on a marketing/branding plan. The work our students do with non-profits is an outstanding way for them to gain hands-on experience. Our faculty and staff also are engaged in a project with a local food bank to help provide weekend food packages for elementary school students who might otherwise go hungry on weekends.
We have much to look forward to this academic year. The Dean’s search is behind us and our AACSB review will be completed soon. We need to nurture the new degree programs introduced last year. We have to build on the successful roll-out of our one-credit weekend professional development series. We must revise our strategic plan. We continue to encourage our students to compete, network, and work to complement their classroom experiences. The amount of programming we offer continues to increase. Look for a big announcement in the coming weeks about our annual Aram Lecture (as part of Ethics Week). It will be a busy and successful year! You can read in this Digest about the number of great things our students, staff, and faculty are doing. They are an impressive group and I am sure you will agree with me that we are well on our way to fulfilling our vision of being “an exemplar of Jesuit business education.” Thank you for your wonderful and continued support. Best wishes for a great fall 2016. Sincerely,
Kenneth S. Anderson, Ph.D. Dean, School of Business Administration

Top 10 Schools to Study Undergraduate

Weekend Professional Development Series In Fall 2015, the SBA began offering one-credit weekend intensive courses to help students develop business skills outside of the traditional classroom. Topics included sales, negotiation, communication, image and reputation, value chain analysis, business skills for non-business majors, and emotional intelligence. More topics will be added as the offerings increase. The courses are very popular with students who may be taking 16 or 17 credits and can add extra courses to 18 credits without paying more tuition. Students also enjoy the intense nature of the courses that allow them to earn a credit in the span of a weekend. The courses are open to all students at the university. In addition to providing students with skills, connecting students to the business community is also a priority. Most classes include guest speakers or field trips, as appropriate. One class travelled to Redmond, Washington to spend the day at Microsoft.

Here is what one student had to say about his trip to Microsoft: Israel Nehemiah Musonda “Today, I would like to honor Stuart McKee (Microsoft Chief Technology Officer and Gonzaga Alumni). He did an exceptional job being the host for my business class trip at the Headquarters of Microsoft campus. This man has demonstrated what being a Zag is all about: That you NEVER forget where you came from and make sure you bring people along for the ride with you. He gave my classmates a once in a lifetime experience. Sorry guys I’m not at liberty to share. Once again thank you for everything! God Bless!”
New Degrees & Minors Gonzaga University Launches Master of Science in Taxation After years of success with our Taxation Concentration in the Master of Accountancy (MAcc) program, Gonzaga is proud to expand its graduate accounting programs to offer a Master of Science in Taxation. This program, launched in fall 2015, can be completed in one year by full-time students, and is offered in the evenings for part-time students. Other key program features include:
Two new minors introduced in the School of Business include the Sustainable Business Minor and Digital Marketing Minor Students earning a Sustainable Business Minor learn about environmental issues and business concepts that relate to sustainability in the work place. Jobs in sustainability encompass the concept of stewardship and responsible management of resources and ways to improve an organization’s environmental, social, and economic impact.
• High quality faculty, all of whom have practical experience • Cutting-edge curriculum, designed with input from the professional community • Small classes, allowing greater discussion and interaction with faculty
Master of Science in Taxation 76% Gonzaga Students CPA first-time Time Pass Rate No. 20 in the US 97% Placement at Graduation Rank: Top 30 in 4 of last 6 years No. 14 in 2014 National Average in 2015-2016 “After being in the industry now for several years, I’m more convinced than ever that my education at Gonzaga was truly exceptional. Gonzaga’s tax program taught me not just the nuts and bolts of taxation, but the theory, history, and practical applications of taxation and how it relates to the people we serve as tax professionals.” - Shelby Culp, MAcc-Tax 2012
Students earning a Sustainable Business Minor are required to take courses from both the School of Business Administration and the Environmental Studies Department within the College of Arts & Sciences. These courses work together across disciplines to give students the necessary background in both business and environmental studies. Students earning a Digital Marketing Minor learn to integrate social media campaigns with more traditional branding activities, discern appropriate content and synergy between SEO and paid search, as well as how to write mobile phone applications that can mine valuable consumer information and use it to populate a secure relational database. This minor is open to all students. Business majors who want to acquire invaluable skills to effectively utilize and understand the varieties of marketing approaches in the digital age are especially encouraged to apply.

FACULTY LED STUDY ABROAD In the Spring of 2016, two SBA professors, Danielle Xu (Finance) and Tim Olsen (Management Information Systems) took 22 undergraduate students to China and Hong Kong. This was a four-week long program, with three weeks spent in China. The focus of this study abroad experience was to visit finance and technology industries in China. Some of the activities included meeting with Microsoft, Nike, Adidas, Baidu, GS1, and Renmin University. Following is a report from one of the students, shared on the blog they kept.
Steel wheel factory near Hangzhou By Student Natalie Hoebing
oday, we began with a very valuable presentation on life tips and Chinese culture by a local Hangzhou entrepreneur, James Moore. He began with life advice quoting the notorious Warren Buffet saying, â€œmarry right.â€? Choosing the right spouse for you is the most important decision you will ever make. Family is at the center of all life. Nothing will add more to your happiness than your family, so finding the right person for you and having a good family life is critical. If families fail, businesses fail and organizations fail. Family is the basic unit of life. He also said to have a good foundation of what is important in life. Happiness is crucial. Being happy improves all aspects of life and will especially help you do better in the workplace. He recommended scheduling time for your family and brought up the 80/20 rule, which we have talked about in our business classes. For those of you who do not know the 80/20 rule, it means that 20% of inputs create 80% of outputs. This concept not only applies to business, but it especially applies to your family.
(Continued on next page)
GONZAGA SCHOOL OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION | 13
Faculty Led Study Abroad (Continued from previous page) James brought up another thing that is very important to know about the Chinese culture, which is the concept of the word “face.” It is very important to the Chinese people to appear better off. “Face” is not respect, but is something that is on the shallow side. It’s not about what you do, but how you do it. It is not about what you say, but how you say it. “Face” is the number 1 motivator in China. Here, losing a job or getting fired is something that is very demeaning. With the one child rule, many generations live under one roof. Getting fired and having to come home to tell your parents or your child is very difficult. In managing Chinese staff, if an authority told someone that they were doing something wrong in front of everyone, that person would probably not come back to work the next day and would find a new job because of the shame. A good manager will talk to others in private and start off with how grateful he or she is forthe work of the person being talked to, then move over to address the issue. This allows the person to share their feelings, which makes the person feel valued. Everyone wants to be understood. They don’t care so much about
14 | GONZAGA SCHOOL OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION
being right. It is very important to never let the problem that is being solved be more important than the person who needs to be helped or cared about. The saying, “it’s not about what you know, it’s who you know” is a million times truer in China. In the US, people are more concerned about results. In China, relationships are the most important asset you can have. In your life, it is very true that on your own you cannot do very much. You need others. The more people you have in your life that love you, care about you, and genuinely want you to be successful, the better off you are. Surround yourself with others who want your best interest. It is also very important to have a mentor in your field to give you advice throughout your life. Building a team is essential. Alongside this, it is good to have your own values and establish your own personal brand. This is why having a background in sales is very important, because you are constantly selling yourself. All of the information he gave us is true and extremely helpful for our journey as young adults.
After James Moore’s presentation, we visited a commercial steel wheel factory called Zhejiang Jingu Company Limited where we were given a tour by David Saylor, Director of Technology. Apparently, Zhejiang Jingu Company Limited is the most advanced wheel factory in the world, with 51 robots working on 3 car lines and 1 truck line, creating steel wheels and rims. We were given a tour of the factory where we saw robots take thick steel disks and pull them upward to create the wheel almost as if it was clay. The wheels are painted by “electropainting” This is similar to creating static electricity when you rub a balloon on your head. The paint will not stick to the steel wheel without some form of electrical charge. The leftover paint is recycled into the next batch. This means that 100% of their paint goes onto their products.
For more student stories, visit:
David gave us many fun facts about their wheel company. I have listed some below: • All of the machinery in the factory cost around $110,000,000. • The factory is in operation 7 days each week. • The company is valued at $1.5 billion. • David Saylor is the only American left in the organization out of the original 11. • There are 195 workers in total. At the very end of our tour, David let us in on a little secret. Apparently, they have just found a way to greatly reduce the weight of the steel truck wheel. Previously, the wheels have weighed 68lbs. They have just recently found a way to get that down to 47lbs. This is a very exciting moment in the history of this company. Altogether, it was very interesting being able to see how wheels are made. Being from the United States, there are so many commodities that don’t get appreciated. The amount of work that goes into every single product we use is tremendous. This was a very eye-opening experience.

New Assistant Professor of Economics - Masha Tackett Masha earned her B.S. in International Economics in 2011 from Baikal National University of Economics and Law in Irkutsk, Russia.

Born and raised in Spokane, Adriane earned her B.A. in Philosophy at Gonzaga University after first attending an out-of-state school for two years. Clearly the experience at Gonzaga resonated as she went on to earn an M.A. in Philosophy and began working as an adjunct instructor for the Philosophy Department where she primarily taught core courses such as Critical Thinking and Human Nature. During this time, Adriane met her husband, Brian, a member of Gonzaga’s faculty. Together they were able to spend numerous semesters in Italy when Brian taught for the Gonzaga-in-Florence program, which both fed and added to their shared wanderlust. In addition to travel, Adriane and Brian love supporting live music, especially blues bands. In 2011, Adriane decided to pursue her MBA at Gonzaga. She cut back on her adjunct teaching in Philosophy and began work as the Alumni & Outreach Specialist for the Graduate School of Business. In that position, she had the opportunity to contribute directly to the personal and professional development of MBA students while also engaging with our alumni and the Spokane area business community. However, her heart led her back to the classroom where she is inspired by guiding students in their
pursuits to become men and women for and with others who will shape and serve their communities as future business leaders. Adriane is also very passionate about the Spokane community and is particularly proud of her work on Spokane’s Community Housing and Human Services Board and with the Spokane Alliance.
New Sophomore Advisor - Katie Zobell
New Graduate Academic Advisor - Esther Wilson Welcome our new MBA, MAcc, & MSTax student advisor, Esther Wilson. With more than 15 years management experience, Esther fully understands the dynamics of education in support of professional objectives and is very much looking forward to students creating pathways to graduation!
The School of Business Administration is excited to introduce Katie Zobell as our new Sophomore Academic Advisor. Katie comes to us with a solid background in academic advising, having worked at other institutions with undergraduate and graduate students in business administration. Her former students came from all corners of the country, so she is well-acquainted with Gonzaga’s wide geographic reach. She is also a strong believer in cura personalis, the university’s commitment to the development of the whole person. She has a passion for higher education, loves academic planning, and wants to help students succeed. This makes her a perfect fit at GU.
In addition to her new role in the Graduate School of Business, Esther has worked in the Sophomore Academic Advising for the School of Business Administration. Prior to joining Gonzaga University, Esther worked with three Fortune 500 companies. While with Pitney Bowes, she built the Inside Sales organization in Spokane. Over the course of her tenure, she led employee growth that was consistently delivering more than $35 million of annual revenue (exceeding target!). Preceding her work with Pitney Bowes, she worked as a Department Manager with Sears Credit, a Reservation Sales Supervisor for The Ritz-Carlton Hotel company, and is a proud graduate from Utah Valley University with a degree in Business Management.

VITA VITA provides Gonzaga students the opportunity to put into action many of the concepts they learn in class while providing a community service. Many VITA clients would have had difficulty obtaining much-needed refunds if such services were not offered. To volunteer, Gonzaga students attended two full days of training over a holiday weekend and then pass a certification exam. School of Business accounting students worked with the IRS and United Way for the third year to help generate more than $1 million in refunds through their free income tax return preparation efforts for low- and middle-income Spokane residents. For the 2016 filing season, 84 IRScertified tax volunteers served 981 clients and filed 840 electronic and paper returns. This is a 4.1% increase from the prior year resulting in $1.04 million in total refunds. For the 2015 filing season, the United Way’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) site, which was staffed by nearly 60 Zags, filed 813 returns and generated $1,080,808 in refunds.
