Love it. Then do it.

Art. Technology. The family restaurant. You love it. You grew up in it, and you plan to make it a career. And the College of Business is here to help you do it better.

Why business? Simple. Look at any job posting, in any professional field. The positions may be different, but organizations all seek the same core skills: interpersonal, analytical, ethics, management, communication, leadership. Because that's what makes businesses successful.

That's what the spirit of the College of Business is all about—applying current business strategy to lifelong dreams. Come into the program, explore the subjects that interest you, find your niche, and go from there.
