To change that, Croson has started publishing monthly blogs that focus on the future of business as unique aspect for the College of Business.
“What I want to do is bring a vision to the school
that would differentiate it from other business schools,” Croson said.
“This vision should be something that all of the different areas and
multiple constituencies faculty, students and the external community —
can contribute to.”
Croson is new to UTA and the center of her
priorities is the future of business, said James Sharp, assistant to
the dean for External Affairs.
“She is future-focused, and her
vision for the College of Business is to comprehend what business will
be in the future and to prepare our students for that,” Sharp said.

the College of Business is doing now both in teaching and in research,
as well as the good work from our alumni in their respective

plans on designing a curriculum in these blog posts that will teach
students, faculty, staff and anyone who reads them about the future of
business. It will also ensure that students will be able to talk about
the challenges a firm might face in 20 to 30 years and how the skills
they have received will enable them to help the firm meet those
challenges, she said.
The blogs will cover a wide range of topics. In the blogs, some faculty will research about the future of business, she said.
instance, Croson is interested in 3-D printing. A lot of people think
about the technology behind it, such as how it works and its equipment,
but very few people think about the implications it will have on
business, she said. The 3-D printing could change the inventory, supply
change or the manufacture in the future.

interested in self-driving cars. Twenty years from now, self-driving
cars will be in Texas, but they could bring changes for the business
world, she said. Real estate development will be involved, Croson said.
In today’s world, there would be a parking lot next to the shopping
mall, but with a self-driven car, the parking lot will be somewhere
else because the car can drop its driver off and park itself, she said.
This is where real estate development would come into play and become
involved in the process of figuring out where to locate the parking
lot, Croson said.
Croson would like, in the future, for degrees
to include some business curriculum, so people will be able to become
familiar and comfortable with business. For example, the leaders in the
education systems do not have a degree in business, she said. By having

skills that you learn at a business school — for instance accounting,
finance, operations, management, marketing, etc. — are useful not just
in for-profit organizations. They’re useful for managing school
districts and hospitals and art museums,” she said. “One of my missions
for the College of Business is to figure out how to deliver those
skills to people who are working in all these different fields. As I
