Welcome from the Dean

Welcome, and thank you for your interest in Crummer. When considering what makes the Crummer experience so distinctive, I think of three things:

  • The first is excellence. We have a real commitment to excellence here that is evidenced in the quality of our classes, faculty, staff, students, and alumni.
  • The second thing is the personal nature of our approach. Crummer provides educational experiences that are intimate and interactive. Our faculty and staff are accessible, approachable, and strive to be as helpful and supportive as possible.
  • Finally, the last word would be family. At Crummer, we understand that pursuing a graduate business degree is a journey that requires the support and participation of those important people in your lives. We strive to both include your family in your journey, as well as welcome you into the extensive, tight-knit Crummer family.

I invite you to explore our website and please reach out to any of us if you have further questions.

Best regards,
Dean Deborah Crown, Ph.D.
