The mission of the Harry F. Byrd, Jr. School of Business is to educate its students to become successful, principled leaders with a global perspective. Students will graduate with confidence in their ability to solve problems, be effective communicators, and work successfully as individuals and team members. Our undergraduate curriculum prepares students to operate in a dynamic, ever-changing personal, social and economic environment. The curriculum provides a solid, general educational foundation requisite for all individuals entering a fast-paced technological and global society. It provides broad-based study in the liberal arts which mark the educated citizen. In addition, working toward the BBA degree will provide students with knowledge in the fields of accounting, financial institutions, information systems and computer technology, global business, economics, management and marketing. This academic preparation linked with communications skills, ethical decision making, entrepreneurship and working in diverse international environments as a team member will make the graduate a valued member of any organization. Students have the opportunity for study-abroad experiences, internships, participation in student organizations and other activities including active management of a student investment fund. The BBA is a part of a life-long learning process for students which will lead to a better society, a better citizen and a better business leader.
