The D’Amore-McKim School of Business
Northeastern University’s College of Business Administration was founded in 1922. Four years ago it was renamed the D’Amore-McKim School of Business in recognition of generous benefactors Rich D’Amore and Alan McKim who combined forces to make a $60 million investment in the school’s future. Since then, the school has undergone an extraordinary transformation, including a 25% increase in full-time faculty and a 34% increase in top-tier journal publications. From being the most highly published school in the Journal of International Business Studies to being ranked 6th on U.S. News and World Report’s new Most Innovative Schools list, Northeastern continues to develop cutting-edge research and learning opportunities that address real business challenges.
D’Amore-McKim offers a unique model of business education that purposely blends innovative classroom learning with real-world business application. Its students explore cutting-edge theory with professors, fusing knowledge with learning experiences that include cooperative education or corporate residency, study abroad, and community service. Similarly, the school’s resulting connections with the corporate world influence its research agendas, which, in turn, shape innovative new business practice. This synergy enables D’Amore-McKim students to become successful business leaders who are both thinkers and doers, and thus highly qualified to think critically and leave their mark on the global business world.
