When business leaders and Northeastern University alumni Richard D'Amore and Alan McKim joined forces to make a historic investment of $60 million to their former school, they ignited a transformation that led to much more than a name change.

In the three years since that momentous naming gift, the school has seen significant growth, adding 10 new hires in tenured positions and a 25 percent increase in faculty overall. This growing community of prominent experts and pioneering scholars is setting the standard for global business education.

D'Amore-McKim faculty continue to grow their strong editorial board leadership and membership at top journals while also increasing research productivity, seeing a 34 percent rise in publications in top journals since 2012.

Calling upon their extensive real-world industry experience and their applicable business research, D'Amore-McKim professors integrate authentic learning opportunities into their rigorous coursework. They also foster a strong connection to the business world through their advisory roles on numerous boards and consulting practices with Fortune 500 companies, utilizing their research findings to inform best practices.

The business school welcomed 26 new faculty members for the 2015-2016 academic year. They are furthering D'Amore-McKim's unique ability to bridge the gap between world-class academics and meaningful business application.
