A New Era

It’s a new era for business, and we’re telling the story of the University of Oregon and the Lundquist College in a whole new way.

Join us as we explore—with movement and sound—what it means to be a business Duck, and travel along with our students and faculty as we make the world better through business.

In the stories that follow in the inaugural edition of Momentum, the successor to UO Business: The Magazine, you have a front-row seat to some of the most exciting news coming out of the Lundquist College of Business.

As your dean during the past 18 months, I’ve seen first-hand the drive and tenacity of our students and instructors, and I’m eager to see what’s next. So come along with us as we build Momentum and strive to accelerate the college and the University of Oregon through the study and implementation of business at its best.
