Dyson Undergraduate Council
Our Business is a Better World
Who Are We?
The Dyson Undergraduate Council is a student-directed organization committed to promoting and strengthening the Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management. The organization consists of students with diverse backgrounds and experiences, all united by their passion for the Dyson School community and undergraduate Applied Economics and Management (AEM) major.
The mission of the Dyson Undergraduate Council is to promote and strengthen the Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management by amplifying the voices of all Dyson students, giving leadership and assistance to fellow AEM students, providing representation and information to the Cornell community and beyond, and embodying the ambition, diversity, and goals of the Dyson School’s undergraduate program. As an organization, we work collaboratively with the Dyson administration to bring student initiatives to fruition.
One event vital to our mission of enacting the Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management motto, “our business is a better world,” is the Better Business Week series. The series was established last year; due to its great success, we decided to make it an annual tradition. This year we are welcoming impactful alumni from a wide variety of backgrounds and industry to speak about how they help to create a better world through business.
