Business & Community

For Businesses. For the Community.

Think ahead 5 years, where do you see your company and community? We know you're aspiring for more, and that desire to continually move forward is in our DNA too. Coles College of Business engages with the community to stimulate economic development, intellectual growth and graduate students ready to move the businesses they support and the communities they live in forward.

Our undergraduate and graduate curriculum is informed by market needs and focuses on business practice, not just theory. We offer many program and partnership options to area businesses to solve problems, spark innovation and help you achieve more.
