School Mission

Our mission is to cultivate business students to become industry ready professionals who have impeccable character and a strong work ethic.  In pursuit of our mission, we will maintain a broad base of financial support through endowment fundraising, corporate contributions, research grant writing, alumni donations, and advisory board contributions. We develop successful scholars of strong character who give back to their community and who have technical and non-technical industry skills developed through a well-rounded business education experience. It is our vision to provide our students an exceptional business education experience that prepares them to immediately add value in any business environment. Our values in the School of Business are based on the founding principles of the institution. A spirit of excellence, with a strong work ethic, is the norm and not the exception amongst our students and faculty.
