On behalf of our faculty, staff and students, welcome to the College of Business and Technology! This is a special place where you can fit in, stand out and get ahead. We have a wide variety of programs in the College that will lead to fulfilling careers in many different professions.

We work hard every day to make sure that each of our programs meets the standards of excellence required by leading national and international professional accrediting organizations. This means that you are assured of a high quality educational experience that will help you reach your goals.

You can expect to learn in and out of the classroom. Our faculty is dedicated to providing rich experiential learning opportunities. This hands-on learning may include working as a consultant on real-world projects for actual businesses, which will lead to the creation of a portfolio of your tangible accomplishments. You can also work with faculty on original research and present your results at national conferences. We hope you also consider participating in the wide selection of study abroad experiences we offer. It is so rewarding to talk to students whose perspectives have broadened through international travel and study. Finally, we encourage all of our students to earn credit and develop valuable experience through internships which often serve as the gateway to your first career. We have two full-time internship directors to help facilitate this experience for you.

We invite you to visit us in person to learn more about the opportunities available to you in the College of Business and Technology. Please contact us today to arrange a visit or to request more information. I look forward to meeting you.
