The mission of the School of Business and Management is to prepare business and management professionals and leaders who are in high demand by business, government, industry and community based agencies through excellence in a learning environment with highly valued programs and courses.


The School of Business and Management is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP).


The School of Business and Management will be a recognized resource for human talent as our graduates become successful professionals with an entrepreneurial spirit, global awareness and ethical values.

The School of Business and Management will pursue its mission by:

  1. Providing quality learning opportunities that assist students in developing an ability to think critically and analytically;
  2. Providing opportunities to learn and gain knowledge in selected business disciplines within a quality learning environment;
  3. Shaping ethical values, leadership and organizational skills;
  4. Providing opportunities to gain “real world” business experience locally, regionally, nationally and internationally; and
  5. Providing service to the community through student/faculty research, learning activities, intellectual contributions and professional involvement.

The School offers Bachelor of Science degrees in accounting and business administration.

Within Business Administration, students may choose a concentration in economics, finance, marketing, business technology education or management.

The School sponsors several student organizations with national affiliations which offer students the opportunity to participate with others to develop enhanced leadership, team building and organizational skills. Current organizations include Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE), Marketing Club, Accounting Club, and the Investment Club. These organizations allow students to engage in professional activities locally, regionally, and nationally that accentuate their academic skills while providing a service to the community. Practical experience can be gained through Internships and Cooperative Education Programs. These experiences provide students with a variety of opportunities to gain professional experience as a part of their academic program.

The business administration degree allows for concentration in business technology education, finance, management, marketing and economics. The curriculum for each of these areas is shown on the following pages.
