University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, Charlton College of Business

Named for retail pioneer Earle P. Charlton, the Charlton College of Business proudly maintains his passion for quality, ethical principles and entrepreneurial spirit. The Charlton College faculty and staff are committed to delivering high quality academic programs and enrichment activities that support student success, career readiness, and lifelong learning.  Our students receive personal attention from faculty in our small classes and learning spaces, and tailored individual advisement from our staff.  Study Abroad, Internship, Honors, and a myriad of social and professional development club opportunities and events are available to our students.  Charlton College is proud to be the only AACSB-accredited business program in southern Massachusetts.  The safe Dartmouth community offers beautiful beaches, local cultural activities in Dartmouth, New Bedford and Fall River, and easy access to Boston. 

In addition to serving the needs of our students, the Charlton College strives to engage with and meet the changing needs of the business community in southern Massachusetts.  These industry relationships result in a more current and relevant curriculum, student/faculty/industry projects, research opportunities, internships, and jobs.

Housed in a modern building originating from a gift from the Charlton Family Trust in 2004 and, more recently, a new $14.5 million Learning Pavilion addition initiated by a generous $3 million gift from the Charlton Family Trust, the Charlton College offers a full range of undergraduate business degree programs, MBA programs, specialized master’s programs in Accounting, Technology Management and Health Care Administration, and post-graduate certificate programs.  In addition, the Charlton College is home to research institutes in innovation, marketing, technology and manufacturing.
