(A Final) Message From the Dean: As you can tell by reading this issue, our Kenneth G. Dixon School of Accounting has a lot to brag about. The school has produced an Elijah Watt Sells Award winner, has three journal editors, and some top researchers in the field. You can read more about them on pages 6 and 7. While I am very proud of our Dixon School of Accounting, our college has many other accomplishments to highlight as well. Our faculty members continue to win awards, our students are participating in national competitions, and our alumni are enjoying success, even in this economy. Our college is doing well and will continue to thrive, although it will soon be under new leadership. I have accepted a position as chancellor at Purdue University Calumet and will be leaving UCF in June. The provost will choose an interim dean for the college, so it will remain in good hands! I have served as dean of the college since 1997, so this will be quite a transition. Since my announcement, I have spent the past few days reflecting on my time at UCF and some of my thoughts are shared with you on pages 8 and 9. Good luck to all of you and thanks for reading my messages over the past few years. It has been my pleasure to address you. While I’m trading one black and gold school for another, UCF will always remain special to me. Thank you for your support. Sincerely,

Thomas L. Keon Thomas L. Keon Dean

Road Trip! EMBA Class Travels Abroad In addition to learning about the global economy inside the classroom, Executive MBA students have the opportunity to learn about it outside as well. As part of the International Residency component of the program, the Class of 2011 traveled to Turkey and Hungary for nine days to discover first-hand how those two European countries conduct business. The group spent the first five days in Istanbul, Turkey, where they had a chance to tour the historical sites of the city and meet with companies such as Koc Holding, Pozitron, Hyundai Assan and APS Tekstil. They also had the opportunity to meet with officials and discuss Turkey’s possible integration into the European Union. The group got a first-hand look at the overall business environment and learned about current and future trends of the region.

The final four days of the trip were spent in the Hungarian capital of Budapest, where the students toured Onlinet’s facilities, and listened to presentations from North American Bus Industries, Magyar Telekom, and Videoton. They also toured the historical section of Budapest and went on a day trip to a traditional Hungarian village on the Danube. The international residency is an integral part of the EMBA program. Each class travels abroad to see first-hand how other countries conduct business. Students take tours, interact with foreign business executives and enhance their learning experience by better understanding what it takes to run a successful business overseas. Each trip lasts approximately seven to ten days. Past groups have traveled to China, Hong Kong, South Korea, Russia, the Czech Republic and Austria.

Students enrolled in the EMBA program participate in an international residency. The Class of 2011 traveled to Turkey and Hungary and learned about the global economy by meeting with officials, touring businesses and visiting historical and cultural sites.

Improving the Future of Entrepreneurship Education UCF played host to the first-ever Future of Entrepreneurship Education summit which attracted nearly 130 leaders from government, higher education and not-forprofit organizations, as well as students and entrepreneurs. Organized by the Extreme Entrepreneurship Tour, the purpose of the summit was to discuss how we should educate the next generation of entrepreneurs. A recent survey conducted by the Young Entrepreneur Council in partnership with Buzz Marketing Group and LegalZoom found that 79 percent of the respondents, who were aged 16-39 (63 percent of them college graduates), were interested in entrepreneurship, but 73 percent felt they did not have the option to take entrepreneurship courses in college. More alarming, those who did have that option thought the classes were ineffective. Much of the discussion at the conference was based on findings from the Kauffman Panel on Entrepreneurship Curriculum in Higher

“It was a privilege to host these

extraordinary entrepreneurship advocates.

We hope today's dialog leads to innovations that empower entrepreneurs in all our communities. We learned a lot today, and we look forward to continuing to improve UCF's award-winning education, advising, incubation and economic gardening initiatives.” —Cameron Ford director, Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation

Jeff Hoffman, founder, Priceline served as the keynote speaker of the conference.

Education which concluded that a single approach to entrepreneurship education is unrealistic given the wide array of educational models, practices and institutional types. Conference attendees addressed ways to improve college resources and the importance of concentrating less on the theory of entrepreneurship, and more on implementing programs that actually allow and encourage students to create and develop new companies. Several high-profile entrepreneurs participated in the summit including keynote speakers Jeff Hoffman, the founder of Priceline, and Michael Delazzer, the founder of Redbox.

Reflecting on 14 Years… 4. What is your favorite memory of working at UCF? Meeting Ken Dixon and working with him as he provided a significant gift to establish the Kenneth G. Dixon School of Accounting. To this day, it remains the largest alumni gift to UCF. 5. What will you miss the most about UCF?

After spending 14 years at UCF, Dean Thomas Keon has announced he has accepted a new position as chancellor at Purdue University Calumet. He took a few moments to reflect about his time at UCF. 14 Questions With the Dean: 1. What do you consider to be your biggest accomplishment as dean? I would have to say working with the faculty to develop a strong Ph.D. program. Our graduates have been placed at prestigious business colleges throughout the nation. 2. What has been your biggest challenge?

6. How has your experience at UCF prepared you for your new position? UCF has always allowed deans autonomy working within each college, which is rather unusual in academia. UCF promotes an entrepreneurial spirit. Being a chancellor has the same level of autonomy and decisionmaking. I have had the opportunity to manage independently for 14 years, which will transfer smoothly over to my new position. 7. How have students changed over the past 14 years?

Managing the budget! Even when there was extreme growth and money was available it was always a challenge to appropriate the right number of faculty in the right disciplines. Now that we are in a weaker economy, it has created many new challenges.

I think students have become less independent in part due to “helicopter parents,” and in part due to the ease of communication such as cell phones.

3. How has UCF changed your life?

I really don’t think they have changed. They remain constant and are very independent professionals that work hard at teaching and are dedicated to scholarship.

UCF has provided me the opportunity to work at a changing institution. I was able to work with faculty and administrators to manage change in a direction that allowed increases in size as well as the quality of student, faculty and academic programs. 8

Definitely the people, particularly those from the College of Business Administration. I actually knew some of the faculty members prior to coming here.

8. How has faculty changed over the past 14 years?


9. Where do you see the college in 14 years? My hope is that 14 years from now, the college will be among the top 100 business schools and will be known for its quality of academic programs and graduates. I think you will be able to go into any business in Florida and find that at least one top executive will be a graduate from the UCF College of Business Administration. 10. Where do you see the overall university 14 years from now? UCF is on a fast track to become a leading university in the nation in quality, size, research and academic programs. It will be among the top tiers of major comprehensive universities in the country. 11. What do you enjoy most about being an administrator? I love shaking hands with students at graduation. That is when all their hard work comes to an end and their family and friends are able to watch them cross the stage. It is exciting and it is the reason we are here. I have literally shaken hands with thousands of students over the past 14 years! 12. What advice do you have for your successor? He or she should take advantage of the opportunities that this position provides. Again, the deans at UCF have autonomy, so they should factor that into their strategic thinking. 13. Do you plan to visit Florida often? Yes, we have many long-time friends here. 14. What is your legacy? I would like to be remembered as the dean that came to UCF and worked with faculty to

direct the college toward quality programs. I was able to bring in outside resources to make that happen and to introduce technology into the learning environment to increase learning opportunities for students.

Just 30 students are accepted each year.

Creator of Study Aid Wins Business Plan Competition Ace Glenn, a senior finance major took home $10,000 and a one-year virtual membership to 10

the UCF Technology Incubator as winner of the 8th Annual Joust Business Plan Competition. His entry, Better Ways to Study LLC, helps students prepare for exams more effectively by using visual and SMS-based representation of their study materials. He had 15 minutes to present his company to a panel of five judges, followed by a 10-minute question and answer session. The event is hosted by the Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation (CEI), and was sponsored by Steven Felkowitz, ’79. Other winners included: • Second Place ($5,000): Daniel Seeff for his product Free In A Box, a marketing tool that links businesses directly to their student target market by offering free promotional materials. • Third Place ($3,000): Nick Frazier, Stephanie Gibbs and Cesar Abueg for their product Oh My Groceries, a web-based service that provides subscribers with a weekly grocery list that combines local discounts with coupons to provide maximum savings. • Fourth Place ($2,000): Matt Schaefer and Kyle Roach for Dave's Market, a tribute to David Schaefer, a UCF student who was killed in an automobile accident this past October.

In that competition, he had just 90 seconds to present his concept, followed by an additional 90 seconds to address questions from a panel of judges.

Professional Selling Students Raise $99,000 For Area Charities! The UCF Professional Selling Class of 2011, which consists of just 24 students, raised more than $99,000 (including cash and in-kind


Biz Central donations) as part of their Sales Apprentice class project. The class was split into six groups. Each group was asked to select a local nonprofit and to set a fundraising goal. The students worked all semester to raise money and solicit in-kind donations. The purpose of the project was so students would gain real-world experience by networking with companies and giving face-toface sales presentations. The winning team raised more than $44,000 for Give Kids the World. Team members included: Lauren Pugliese, Christie Riegger, Stephanie Favinger, and Jeff McMaster. They far surpassed their fundraising goal which was $10,000. The other five teams in the class also raised money for local non-profits: • Ronald McDonald House - $7,704 • Give Kids the World, team 2 - $3,250 • Gift for Music - $39,236 • Childen's Miracle Network - $1,778 • Runway for Hope - $3,470 To promote the winning team, Clear Channel Outdoor donated a billboard on University Boulevard to congratulate them, and Cox Media donated a radio ad. To recognize the nonprofit, the Orlando Sentinel donated a quarter page ad.

SBDC News Client Honored Fernando C. Pereira, president of Orlando-based Pegasus Transportation, was named the 2011 U.S. Small Business Administration Small Business Person of the Year, North Florida District. The Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at UCF, which is part of the CBA, nominated him for the award. Pereira and his wife Claudia have run Pegasus Transportation since 1994. Over the past decade, they have taken advantage of many of the services offered by the SBDC including 10-years of in-depth business consulting, training

and skill development, as well as referral resource support through the SBDC’s Small Business Resource Network. Today, Pegasus, with offices in Orlando and Miami, operates 20 coach buses and offers itinerary planning, meetand-greet services, luggage assistance, and onsite supervision.

New Program Helps Retain Jobs The SBDC has launched the Growth Acceleration Program (GAP), for small businesses as part of a $2.6 million grant received by the Florida SBDC Network. The program targets small to medium enterprises to support the creation and retention of jobs for Central Floridians by providing individualized, professional consultant services to growing businesses. Specifically, the SBDC at UCF GAP consultants will help develop sustainable growth strategies including strategic plan development, assessing and accessing capital, determining market diversification tactics and shoring up financial practices and financial institutional relationships.

UCF News UCF Researchers Included in Prestigious National Ranking The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching designated UCF as a university with “very high research activity.” UCF joins universities such as Harvard, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Johns Hopkins and Stanford in that top tier, which does not include specific rankings for each university. UCF researchers were awarded a record $133.3 million in external research funding in 2009-10. In addition, UCF's success moving technology from the laboratory to the marketplace and helping emerging businesses grow elevated the university's classification since the last Carnegie Foundation analysis in 2005.
