We couldn’t be happier that you’ve chosen the CU Denver Business
School to pursue your degree! Helping you find your passion, develop your
business acumen, and launch your career is truly an honor. You’re going
to learn about business from passionate and skilled faculty, and through experiences
embedded in one of the most exciting cities in the country – Denver!
We live in unprecedented times with challenges that no one has
faced before. But, we have spent months planning for course delivery that
will provide you with high quality educational experiences and for the support
services you need for success.
Ensuring your safety, and the safety of our faculty and staff,
means accepting that many of our previous practices have to be adapted to a new
reality. What hasn’t changed is that you can still take the
same classes and you can still access the same services such as advising.
You may very well have an easier time scheduling a meeting and feel more
comfortable discussing your situation from the privacy of your home.
You’re now part of the CU Denver Business School community, and how deeply you want to benefit from this community is up to you. Your classmates can become life-long friends, business partners, and sources of inspiration, if you are open to the possibility of developing these relationships. Similarly, faculty and staff can provide valuable direction and advice, if you ask them. I encourage you to make the most of your time at CU Denver.
Campus life will eventually return to a post-COVID experience, and that experience will be made better from what we’re learning and improving with education today. I look forward to meeting you and watching you grow in the coming years.
Scott A. Dawson

In the midst of COVID-19, another crisis has taken the center stage in the national dialogue: systemic racism. A panel of business executives, campus leadership, and students will discuss the challenges and opportunities for confronting systemic racism in 2020, moderated by the new Dean of the CU Denver Business School, Dr. Scott Dawson.
The panelists bring years of experience in diversity and inclusion from the corporate sector and higher education. They’ll discuss the historical implications of systemic racism, inequity and racism in the workplace, the role of business and higher education, and solutions we can implement today to build a better Denver.
