The Franklin P. Perdue School of Business was established in 1986 through a multimillion-dollar fund created to ensure excellence within the academic programs of the school.
It is the largest college-level center for business education and development in the region and is committed to an emphasis on the entrepreneurial spirit, integration of theoretical and applied study, and community-based experience. To these ends, the school provides an academic program which responds to the highest standards of business education and provides for student interaction with the business world. Courses are designed to encourage students to think clearly, show sound judgment, communicate verbally and in writing, develop interpersonal skills and make rational decisions under conditions of uncertainty. Students graduate with ethical and motivational foundations underlying service to business, government and the community.
