This Implementation Plan translates the goals described in the strategic plan into more detailed actions, measures of performance, and objective goals that we intend to complete by the end of the planning period, 2019. In addition, this document estimates resources necessary to achieve the objectives and provides plans for the source of the additional revenues. The Implementation Plan is structured to parallel Pamplin’s strategic plan.

Pamplin will be a leader in business education, developing knowledge and skills to enhance success in a complex, digital economy, recognized by companies that employ our graduates and by individuals at influential universities. We will be particularly known for our expertise and accomplishments in business intelligence/analytics, innovation through entrepreneurship, and for our international educational programs.
