College of Business & Economics




The College of Business and Economics, located in historic Stephens Hall, is accredited by AACSB International —The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business — in both its accounting and business administration programs.

This designation places the college in the top one percent of business schools worldwide and the top 10 percent in the United States. Offering both undergraduate and graduate programs, the college provides a comprehensive business education firmly grounded in liberal arts.


While earning a degree is essential to entering the business world, the skills needed to be successful in any career can’t all be taught in the classroom. At the College of Business and Economics, the philosophy of applied learning is at the core of all our programs.

Understanding the value and necessity of hands-on experience, the college offers the one-of-a-kind Business Excellence program designed to prepare students to enter their careers. Through this program, students gain the knowledge, skills, and attitudes (KSAs) in the classroom to learn the basics of professional development such as giving powerful presentations, communicating ideas effectively and working in teams. Our students then engage in quality internship experiences in professional settings. Through this approach of applied skills and knowledge, all of our students graduate having already taken the first steps in their chosen career paths.

Along with the internship program, students also apply leadership and teamwork to engage with the campus community and beyond through the college’s 18 student organizations.


Whether students are pursuing a general career in business or have their eyes on more specific paths, the college provides the foundational knowledge to be successful in today’s business world while allowing students to explore in-depth study for their specific areas of interest.

With four undergraduate majors, six combined majors, two minors, as well as numerous concentrations, the college provides a comprehensive yet diverse spectrum of academic programs. With support of the support of our distinguished faculty, students can chart their educational route that will lead them to meet their goals.
