Welcome from the Dean

We strive hard to provide a current and relevant degree program and to guide our students through the selection of a concentration and electives that fits their passion and goals. Across all business disciplines, our courses include discussions of global and ethical issues and learning activities are designed to enhance the student’s teamwork, communication, and technological skills.

Being mindful of the full lives our students lead, our mission is to challenge them and give them the knowledge, tools, and experiences they need to analyze and solve business problems and continue to learn, develop, and contribute as a professional and community member throughout their lives.


We believe in a reality based approach to learning and the preparation of our well qualified faculty includes professional experiences with public and/or private organizations and several courses also require students to work on cases for actual organizations.

We invite you to contact us through phone, e-mail, or personal visit and encourage you to connect with us on Facebook.  Also, feel free to read my blog and my vision statement.
