The heart of the CBA Vision is Quality Learning and Exploration. The College mission statement can be condensed into one sentence: "The College of Business Administration advances the University's mission and goals by providing intellectual leadership through teaching, research, and service." Our Dean's vision for our College is to:
- Provide an environment that Nurtures Learning and Exploration
- Create opportunities for faculty to Disseminate Information
- Provide Educational Opportunities for students, businesses, and the general public
- Provide a platform for many and various forms of Partnerships
- Nurturing Learning and Exploration
The College is a catalyst for students, faculty, and the general public to gain a better understanding of the various fields of business. Educational experiences inspire learning and encourage exploration.
Dissemination of Information
Students are encouraged through the learning process to gather information to be used by them in future business vocations. Both students and faculty are encouraged to pursue outlets to share "new" information within their fields and with business practitioners.
Provide Educational Opportunities
Degree seeking individuals are provided with curricula leading to baccalaureate, masters, and doctoral programs. The College is also committed to provide more opportunities with structured learning experiences that "certify" non-degree seeking individuals as having accomplished a minimum requirement for a selected career.
Provide a Platform for Partnership
The College is engaged in specific areas of excellence that provide opportunities for learning, exploration, and sharing. These specific areas of excellence take the form of Centers and Institutes, and selected niche areas of College units.
