The business world is transforming itself from the industrial age into the information age. Business education at the Cameron School of Business is focused on the technical, analytical, and interpersonal skills students will need to lead this fundamental change in the business world through the 21st century. There are approximately 2200 undergraduate students in business degree programs and more than 200 graduate students. While the mix of students changes over time, the Cameron School of Business is approximately equally divided between male and female. About 20 percent of the students in the Cameron School come from out of state, with the remainder drawn principally from the Coastal Carolina, Triangle, Triad and Charlotte areas. Approximately 15 percent commute from home, 20 percent live on campus, and the remainder live in nearby apartments or at the beach. A key component of business education for students is real world experience. The Cameron School of Business offers students several options to gain such experience. Many class projects are conducted with a cooperating local or regional firms. Student business fraternities and clubs offer a variety of field visits to organizations and attract a variety of business leaders to campus to relate first-hand to students their experience. Our annual "Business Week" program each spring brings over 60 business leaders from the area, region and nation to campus to share insights. In addition, students may participate in local, regional and national internships with selected businesses and firms on a part-time or full-time basis for a semester and receive academic credit. Our mission is, through excellence in teaching, scholarship, service, and executive involvement, for the Cameron School of Business to provide students with the skills, knowledge, and practice to think critically and act responsibly in meeting global challenges.
