Mission

The School of Business and Public Administration (BPA) provides students with the knowledge and skills to make decisions addressing issues facing organizations in our region. We support this mission with applied and teaching-related research along with community engagement, to serve our diverse student body and region.

As an accredited professional school, we are dedicated to educating students to become more effective and efficient managers in the public, private, and not-for-profit sectors operating in our complex and dynamic region. Although each program has unique learning goals and objectives, all the degree programs emphasize communication and quantitative skills, context and external environments, critical thinking and integrative problem solving, and a working knowledge of the pertinent academic disciplines.
