Michigan State University
Michigan faces a 20% base line budget reduction over the next 3 years. The retailing program was realigned four years ago to a new department called Advertising, Public Relations and Retailing in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences. The transition has been smooth and the MSU faculty are very happy in their new home. Enrollment is stable and the doctoral program in Retailing is growing. We have several open positions, but movement on those positions will need to be postponed until decisions are made about the budget.
