Governors State Develops 'Global Mindset' for New Demographics


An interview with Jun Zhao, interim division chair, at Governors State University.

Q: Tell us about College of Business and Public Administration at Governors State University. How does it differ from other business schools in the area?

A: The College of Business and Public Administration at Governors State University provides an accessible, high quality education to a diverse student body primarily from the Chicago area. We offer BA in Business Administration, BS in Accounting, BA in Entrepreneurship, and BA in Business and Applied Science degrees, as well as Master of Business Administration, Master of Public Administration, Master of Science in Accounting, and Master of Science in MIS. We have recently launched an Online Supply Chain MBA, starting in January 2013.

Some of our strengths are our faculty and curriculum, our flexible schedule and small class sizes, and diverse faculty and student body. Almost all of our full time faculty members hold terminal degrees in their specific field. Many of them are engaged in research, and publish at top journals including Accounting Review, Harvard Business Review, Journal of Organizational Behavior, Journal of Finance, and Management Science. Many of them also have extensive industry experiences. Our adjunct professors are practitioners who work in the industry.

Q: How many students are enrolled in the college? Is this number increasing?

A: In spring 2013 we have 840 full time equivalent students enrolled in the college, with 567 in the undergraduate and 273 in the graduate programs. We have experienced significant increase in our undergraduate enrollment, especially the full time student body. This is a trend that will be very beneficial for GSU's strategic move to add freshmen in the year 2014.

Q: Tell us one interesting fact about the college.

A: In order to develop the "global mindset" for our students, we have been expanding the global content in our curriculum for quite a few years. Not only do we require an "international business" course for our undergraduate and graduate business degrees, we integrate global content in various subject areas, such as accounting, marketing, and supply chain management. We also offer study abroad opportunities for our students. Last summer a group of 16 students participated in a 12 day study tour in China. This summer we are working on a similar trip to Poland.
