College of Business

Jane Mutchler, PhD, Dean

The innovative programs in the College of Business will prepare you to meet the needs of today’s global business environment and provide you with opportunities to develop your leadership potential.

Competitions and experiential learning courses help you build a portfolio of work to impress employers. In the process, you will discover your passions, learn how to work as an effective team member, and develop innovative ways of thinking through cutting-edge technology and learning experiences.

Our students work with community partners in several exciting ways. Small Business Consulting students work with small businesses to identify and solve problems. Marketing students pair with SBDC-identified companies to build and implement Google AdWords campaigns for them. In our Center for Business and Economic Development Solutions, students work alongside faculty to solve real world business problems. Our HTM students run a lunch and dinner restaurant for the campus and the community.

Our engaged and dedicated faculty, many of whom remain working in their areas of expertise, will lead you from the classroom to career with innovative and challenging learning experiences.

We’ll help you connect with top employers in our new Center for Career Management and through professional development seminars built into your curriculum.

Our graduates work for local, national, and international companies including People’s Bank, White Lodging, Aerotek, Hadady Corporation, Apple, KPMG, Exelon, Ritz Carlton, Four Seasons, Morningstar, Accenture, Starbucks, Coca Cola, Ernst & Young, PwC, Airbnb, Disney, Pratt Industries, Zimmer Biomet, Aflac, the Chicago Board Options Exchange, and the World Bank.
