New Book Explores School of Business’ Ascent

While delving into his family’s genealogy in 2010, UConn Accounting Professor Rob Hoskin realized the value of keeping track of one’s history, both big and small.

For the last five years, in addition to tracing his own roots, Hoskin has explored the vast and ever-changing history of the School of Business, which is celebrating its 75th anniversary this academic year.

Hoskin perused volumes of faculty minutes, dug through archived photographs, and even tapped the memories of long-time School employees to produce the book titled, “History of the University of Connecticut School of Business Administration: 75 years on the road to excellence: 1940-2015.’’

All proceeds from the sale of his book will benefit a scholarship for UConn business students. To order a copy, please visit the publisher’s bookstore or Amazon, which also has a version for the Kindle.
