Biswadip Ghosh, assistant professor of computer information systems (CIS), had a great idea.
For the last year or so, Ghosh has met off campus with users of a popular business software to exchange notes on managing data and information and to give them some knowledge about the School of Business and its CIS program.
Those get-togethers sparked the idea that Metro State could host a similar meeting to expose even more companies to the business school and give students and faculty greater insight into how this software is used in the real world.
So on Sept. 30, students, teachers and representatives of companies and organizations gathered at the Auraria Campus for a conference on management information systems, particularly the enterprise resource planning (ERP) software developed by SAP, a company headquartered in Germany with operations around the world, including the United States.

Metro State announces Ann Murphy as new dean of the School of Business
April 27, 2011
Metropolitan State College of Denver Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Vicki L. Golich has announced Ann Murphy as the new dean of the School of Business, effective June 1, 2011.
“Dr. Murphy’s numerous qualifications, including her history of excellent contributions to Metro State, have led to my decision to offer her the position of dean, and she has graciously accepted,” says Golich. “This is a very significant step for Metro State, the selection of one of our three deans who will help lead the College into the future.”
Murphy, who currently serves as associate dean of the College’s School of Business, has been at Metro State since 1997 as a professor of accounting. She assumed the role of associate dean in 2007. She has a B.A. in accounting and computer science from Boston College, an MBA from the University of Nevada, and a Ph.D. in business with a major in accounting from the University of Arkansas.
Murphy has extensive experience in the business world, including as a budget and financial analyst and an accounting and treasury manager. She has received awards for teaching including the Distinguished Faculty Achievement in Teaching Award in the School of Business for the 1998-1999 academic year.
“I’m excited about working with the faculty, staff, president and provost to continue the College’s initiatives and the work Dean Cochran has started in the School of Business,” says Murphy, who has established a significant record of service to and partnerships with the business community and nonprofit social-service agencies. “Through the interviewing process I received so much support from the faculty. I look forward to continuing to work with them at Metro State, a place I love.”
Golich says, “My selection follows a nearly one-year search effort by the College, from the announcing of the position, to applications by several well-qualified candidates, to a lengthy screening process, through the phone and campus interviews.”
Murphy replaces John Cochran (’78, economics), the current dean and tenured economics professor who has served in the role since 2004 and been with the College since 1981. He will retire as dean on May 31, 2011 and will return to teach in the fall.
Metro State President Stephen Jordan says the College is experiencing extraordinary growth in enrollment, record hiring of new faculty and unprecedented advancement in college-wide initiatives. “Dr. Murphy will help the School of Business meet the challenges it faces, fashion its future direction and further realize its great potential,” he says.
