Message from the Dean
On behalf of the faculty and staff, welcome to the College of Business Administration! We invite you to explore our web site and learn all that our college has to offer. We recently opened Vivian M. Carroll Hall, a technologically sophisticated addition to our facility. The building houses the impressive Carroll Capital Markets Training and Trading Center to support the study of global capital markets. Laboratories, wired classrooms, group meeting rooms, and the Whitton Auditorium are all designed to provide this generation of students with new learning opportunities. Across the curriculum, students are engaged with outside clients working on real business problems, contributing to research studies, working in internships, and participating in other field-based learning experiences.
We recently completed a successful review by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, the preeminent global business accreditation organization. Their report was complimentary of our student professional development program, the diversity of our student body, and the extent to which our students have international opportunities. We have the approval of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, the top organization that accredits computer science programs. Our Economics Major is served by a fantastic group of teachers; and the newest program, Digital Information Design, is growing and providing an entree into innovative career paths.
Our mission is to provide learning opportunities for students and to promote business growth and economic development. We have attracted students and scholars from around the world to join our programs that offer excellent classroom instruction and chances to interact with practitioners in many disciplines, all in an environment with the ideal blend of challenge and support. We combine students and faculty and staff and practitioners into partnerships that together execute our mission to learn and grow and ultimately to develop each constituent into the best citizen and contributor to an organization that he or she can possibly become.
Award winning faculty, world class facilities, and carefully planned curriculum provide outstanding nationally accredited programs in a variety of specialty areas. The faculty are dedicated to student learning and personal growth. We celebrate each other’s accomplishments. We set high expectations for our community so we invite you to get involved in the activities that are offered in the College and take advantage of every development opportunity provided.
The College of Business Administration web site is designed to introduce you to what we offer. Some parts are directed to potential students, some to current students, and some to practitioners who might be interested in joining one of our service partnerships. The page includes the appropriate contact person for our programs. Regardless of your perspective, if you are an active learner, make that contact for more information. The College is committed to building strong relationships and the partnerships that follow. Join us as we serve students, business leaders, and the community.
