Required Readings

Each year the college recommends a book that offers important insight for students and faculty. Students in BUS 3250, Discussions with Business Leaders, are required to read the selected book. Faculty, staff, and college board members are also encouraged to read the selection. Every year the recommended book is discussed at the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business Fall Start-up Meeting. The book sparks discussions that often generate new ideas as students and faculty explore its concepts and consider its possible applications.
