We teach the essential skills to be innovative and successful in the business world.
As a department, we are eclectic in nature since we combine several subject areas that are often stand-alone departments. We believe that this combination of academic interests results in a strong multidisciplinary advantage to students who want to choose from a wide range of courses, while retaining enough coursework in each area to satisfy those students who are interested in specializing in one of our disciplines.
Our multidisciplinary faculty members are dedicated to delivering top-notch education and instilling in our students the skills they need to be innovative and competitive in the marketplace, as well as global awareness in their approach to problem-solving. Values of sustainability and ethical business practices are also promoted. Through our business communications and sales courses, we teach our students essential skills to communicate effectively and confidently in professional situations.
Our faculty members engage in research and scholarship that is applicable to the local and global community and contribute to the economic development of the Piedmont Triad, North Carolina, and beyond.
