At the College of Business and Economics, we prepare students for professional career success in business and nonprofit organizations by focusing on a unique combination of two of today's timely challenges: analytics and innovation. We invite prospective students to join with us as we build on our past accomplishments and adapt to a rapidly changing global economy with our active, technology-rich learning environment.
