Drury’s Breech School of Business to celebrate 60 years, new dean
SPRINGFIELD, Mo., September 7, 2017 — Drury University’s Breech School of Business is celebrating its 60th anniversary. The school will host a “Friends of Breech” event to kick off the celebration and welcome its new dean, Dr. Jin Wang.
The meet and greet event will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 14 in the Breech School of Business Administration Lounge. Alumni and community members are invited to come and meet Dr. Wang, who began work as Breech’s new dean this summer.
The Breech School of Business was established in May of 1957 and is named after former Drury student Ernest R. Breech (1897 – 1978). Breech was a highly successful business leader whose accomplishments included serving as head of the Ford Motor Company and reviving Trans World Airlines. Today, the school honors his legacy by its continued commitment to prepare ethical leaders for the global business community.
Wang brings extensive experience in global business education and administration. He has previously served as dean of the College of Business and Economics at the American University in Kuwait and as dean of the Gore School of Business at Westminster College in Utah.
“The Breech and Drury communities have been very welcoming over the past few weeks,” Wang says. “I am honored to be at Breech during this milestone year, and I look forward to continuing to meet our alumni and supporters at next Thursday’s event.”
