2020 Strategic Plan: Destination Weatherhead

Destination Weatherhead

Linking Our Legacy To Our Future

The Weatherhead School of Management’s 2020 strategic plan, Destination Weatherhead: Linking Our Legacy To Our Future, was completed in May 2020 after a diligent 10-month process that sought input from a diverse group of stakeholders including alumni, students, faculty and staff.

The newly outlined mission, vision and values for the future not only align with the university’s “Think Big” strategic plan, but also support its execution and implementation for the next decade.

We will focus our initial strategic initiatives on management of the healthcare vertical and analytics and data-driven management.

Destination Weatherhead is anchored in our strengths across the entire spectrum of research and learning ranging from Appreciative Inquiry (AI) to Artificial Intelligence (AI).

As the inventors of Appreciative Inquiry, we have a long history of excellence in leadership development, emotional intelligence and executive coaching. We also strive to build on our unique strengths in quantitative modeling, business analytics and artificial intelligence-based applications. This excellence positions us as the institution of choice that students, researchers and organizations look to for the latest programs, research and learnings—from AI to AI.

Being a part of a comprehensive world class research university with a stellar reputation in experiential learning will help produce students skilled in multiple functional areas. Graduates will understand how to harness modern technology to see the bigger picture, and how to use that knowledge to ethically lead their organizations forward.

Few other business schools can match this value proposition.
