Welcome to the 2019 edition of Portfolio from Dean Marianne W. Lewis, PhD.

“This is a true homecoming.” Get to know Marianne Lewis, the college’s new dean, as she talks about her pursuit of innovation and creating a shared vision for the college’s bright future.

Nicolas Williams served as the interim dean for the Lindner College of Business from June 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019, overseeing a year of transformational growth and success.

Fifty years ago, the department of operations, business analytics and information systems (OBAIS) looked quite different from today’s programs, which boast record enrollment and industry accolades.

The Lindner College of Business is defining its role in the University of Cincinnati’s strategic direction, Next Lives Here. Career planning, contextual learning and flexible co-op opportunities are just the beginning.

Not everyone can vividly recall the precise time when their life’s trajectory changed, but Jeff Miller, outgoing CEO of Cincinnati-based Burke Inc., can. What started as intrigue has grown into a career of innovative client service.

Three generations of financial advisors (and Lindner alums) lean on each other for success.
