Message from the Dean
Hello, I am Dr. Lloyd Gibson, Dean of the School of Business. On behalf of our faculty and staff, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our School.
At the School of Business, we are committed to student success. We help our students succeed by providing experiential, hands-on learning opportunities, by building career readiness into our courses, and by having professors who are experienced business professionals. We do all of this with undergraduate programs that include Business Administration with eight different specializations, Accounting with four different programs including a CPA track BS/MS that is licensure-qualifying, and a degree completion program in Organizational Management for experienced students. In addition, we offer five graduate programs including an MBA with nine concentration options and four MS programs in Business Analytics, Organizational Leadership, Human Resource Management, and Public Accounting. Our programs not only help you get a job, but they also help you prepare for or advance your career.
