Leavey School of Business Dean Caryn Beck-Dudley addresses the U.N. on the far-reaching value of small businesses.

<p>United Nations HQ in New York hosted Leavey School of Business Dean <strong>Caryn Beck-Dudley</strong> in May. The occasion: a summit spotlighting the key role of small businesses in global development, economic growth, and job creation. Her message: Universities and colleges provide vital, relevant education to the next generation of entrepreneurs, future business owners, and employees—especially by using curricula influenced by both working practitioners and academics.</p>

<p>“We can no longer have curriculum and courses only informed by the academic disciplines,” said Beck-Dudley, one of eight academic leaders invited to speak by the Permanent Mission of Argentina and the International Council for Small Business. “Speed, agility, practicality—in addition to academic content—are the hallmarks of what we at Santa Clara are trying to do.”</p>
