Business School Dean Says Knox College Shaped Him

From WGIL radio:

A Knox College alum who has taught business leaders around the world and is now dean of a business school says he couldn’t do any of that had he gone somewhere other than Knox College for school.

P. Christopher Earley was one of four to receive an Alumni Achievement Award Friday as part of Founders Day activities at Knox College. Earley has taught business in California, Arizona, Singapore, Hong Kong, and others — but is currently the Dean of the University of Connecticut School of Business.

But Earley, like the three others who also received Alumni Achievement Awards Friday, says without Knox, none of that would be possible. “I think if there’s anything I got from my education here, it wasn’t just a desire and a passion for global issues — and I’ve spent most of my life as an ex-pat outside the U.S.,” Earley said. “I’ve lived in a dozen different countries, three different continents. That passion began because of what I was exposed to here at Knox.”
