Our mission is to prepare students for successful business related careers in the public, nonprofit, and private sectors. Our emphasis is on undergraduate and graduate business education that serves traditional on campus students as well as non-traditional students in Illinois and beyond. Access for students outside of the Central Illinois region is extended via online degree offerings and outreach to select international student populations. Our undergraduate programs offer selected specializations in Accounting, Economics, Management, and Management Information Systems (MIS) as well as a broader curriculum in Business Administration. Our graduate program in Accountancy prepares students for professional careers in Accounting; our Master of Business Administration degree program offers an advanced general management education to prepare students for advancement in their careers; and our graduate degree in MIS is designed to enable students to gain technical expertise and organizational knowledge in the application of information technology to solve organizational problems. Student learning is the highest priority of the college. We achieve this through our continuous review of curricular offerings, an emphasis on student engagement, and effective pedagogy, as well as through a variety of delivery methods such as online, face-to-face, and blended. Our faculty members are academically (scholarly or practicing) and/or professionally (scholarly or instructionally) qualified with appropriate degrees, recent intellectual contributions, generally focused on applied research, and/or professional experience. The college encourages and supports faculty in teaching and scholarship as well as service activities. The college supports academic organizations and outreach at the local, regional, national, and international levels.
