About the College
The College of Business offers a number of majors and concentrations at the undergraduate level and have both a campus and 100% distance-based MBA degree. Our faculty have a strong teaching orientation as well as an applied research focus that contributes significantly to the richness of student learning.
The college's undergraduate, MBA, and accounting programs are each accredited by AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. While other accrediting agencies exist, AACSB is the highest credential available to business schools. Originated in 1915, AACSB's founding members included Columbia University, Harvard University, Northwestern University, The Ohio State University, and 13 other institutions. Among approximately 2500 business programs world-wide today, only about 30% are AACSB accredited, and less than 10% have all three degree programs accredited.
In addition to the traditional educational focus, the college has a number of centers that focus on transferring technology and knowledge to the business world. Faculty, staff, and students use their expertise to work with both individuals and corporations through these various outreach efforts. These endeavors are listed under "Programs and Centers".
