Biographical or Historical Information
In 1985, the Risk and Insurance Society was reorganized as the Finance, Insurance, and Real Estate Society (FIRES). The goal of the group was to provide an organization through which undergraduate students could interface with business leaders. Ms. Laura Green was FIRES first president, and Joe Johnsons and Don Jud served as faculty advisors. At the end of the year, FIRES has more than 30 active members.
In 1989, an informal Departmental Advisory Board was established for the first time to assist the department in foster closer relations with the business community and enhancing the educational opportunities of students. In 1990,the Department was rated among the top 25 departments in the country for research in the area of risk management and insurance in a study published in the Journal of Risk Management and Insurance.
In August 1993, Professor Donald McCrickard became acting Department Head, succeeding Professor Donald Jud.
In the Fall of 1995, the Department of Finance merged with the Department of Management and Marketing to form the Department of Business Administration.
