Undergraduate Program Climbs Six Places in U.S. News Ranking
Broad’s undergraduate business program was ranked No. 21 overall and No. 11 among public universities in the recently released U.S. News & World Report rankings. Last year, the college was ranked No. 27 overall and No. 16 among public universities. The college also continued its dominance in the supply chain management/logistics specialty, ranking No. 1 for the fourth straight year.
Abusive Leaders Affect the Whole Team
Research by a Broad scholar indicates that supervisors who treat individual employees abusively can negatively affect the entire work team, not just those on the receiving end of the abuse. Within these teams, hostility and conflict reign, hurting overall productivity.
Hospitality Alumnus to Speak at Warrington Lecture

Masculine Self-Emphasis Helps Women Enter Male-Dominated Fields
Research by MSU scholars indicates that women applying for jobs in male-dominated fields should consider playing up their masculine qualities. In a laboratory experiment, women who described themselves using traditionally masculine traits (assertive, independent, achievement oriented) were evaluated as more fitting for a job than those who emphasized traditionally female traits (warmth, supportiveness, nurturing).
