The primary mission of the College of Business is to provide high-quality, career-oriented education to students of varied economic and cultural backgrounds, experiences, and academic preparation. We seek to do so through comprehensive programs designed to accommodate a full-time undergraduate and a substantial part-time evening student body and by engaging in teaching, research, and consulting involving both the development and the communication of knowledge. It is the vision of the school to be a regional leader in providing career-oriented, contemporary business education.

As the business environment becomes more complex, the College of Business provides contemporary educational experiences of high quality in order to prepare students to face the challenges of a dynamic world and to meet their responsibilities within a global society. To achieve these goals, we provide career-oriented programs, employing current knowledge and techniques presented in a manner appropriate to the diverse backgrounds and experiences of our graduate students.

The College of Business is divided into five academic departments: the Departments of Accounting; Economics and Finance; Management, Marketing, and Quantitative Analysis; Public Management; and Sports/Hospitality and Tourism Management

Through the Graduate School, the College of Business offers an M.B.A. program, an Executive M.B.A. program, and master’s degree programs in a number of other business fields. A master’s in public administration (M.P.A.) as well as two dual degrees, M.B.A./M.P.A. and M.B.A./M.S. Industrial Engineering, are also available. Master of science degrees are offered in health care administration, labor relations, management of sports industries, and taxation. In addition, more than a dozen graduate certificates are available for students who seek a short graduate curriculum concentrated in a specific business area.

At the undergraduate level, the College of Business offers associate and bachelor’s degree programs in the departments of Accounting, Economics and Finance, Marketing, Management, Sports Management, and Public Administration.
