Message from the Dean
|Deborah Crown, Ph.D., Dean, College of Business 900 Fort Street Mall, Suite 600 Honolulu, HI 96813|
Since our founding 50 years ago, the HPU College of Business has been dedicated to giving students a dynamic start or a step forward in their careers. Our commitment is to combine cutting edge business information with real world experiences to prepare and enhance profession-ready global leaders.
HPU College of Business has been recognized with national distinguished honors thanks to the efforts of our faculty, staff, and alumni. HPU has been ranked #1 in the nation for diversity and the College of Business has been nationally ranked top 18th among the best online MBA programs in International Business.
Ours is a challenging and exhilarating environment. We prepare our graduates to be more than good students. They are prepared for what Fast Company magazine calls “generation flux,” where the rules change daily, where creativity and innovation are a must, and where the ability to think globally and strategically are expected. We want our graduates to be prepared to step immediately into a productive, forward-moving work role.
Our alums mentor and connect. Our business partners in the surrounding Honolulu business community work with our students in projects and assignments. And the unique diversity of our campus is stimulating and insightful. Both the student population and educators come from Japan, Mainland China, Vietnam and other points east to the far reaches of Saudi Arabia and other Middle Eastern locales, South America and Europe.
We invite you to think, connect and get profession-ready. Our admissions personnel, and our faculty, are ready to help.
