The vision of the College of Business is to “be the educational destination of choice for students seeking an extraordinary, career-oriented educational experience and enduring professional success”.
The College offers a wide selection of academic programming delivered via the excellent caliber of its faculty who guide their students’ academic journey. It offers an intellectually challenging environment and yet one where professors mentor and support student efforts to meet the high standards of the classroom and reach excellence. Academic programs meet the highest standards of quality in business education and, since 2005, have been continuously accredited by AACSB International.
Curricular and co-curricular activities that enable students to hone their leadership skills abound, within the classroom, and in the form of ten active student organizations, a professional business fraternity, and a business scholastic society. Several organizations are affiliated with national associations, such as: the American Marketing Association (AMA), Beta Gamma Sigma International Honor Society (BGS), the Society for the Advancement of Management (SAM), and Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). These organizations focus heavily on offering professional networking and enhanced career-readiness opportunities to student members.
Students have numerous opportunities to participate in leadership development conferences, national level student competitions, present research work at academic and industry conferences, network with business and industry leaders, undertake educational excursions both stateside and abroad, as well as participate in an array of internship and employment opportunities.
The College is committed to preparing citizen-leaders of the future who have the capacity and the character to meet societal expectations and make a difference in the communities they inhabit.
