The Lutgert College of Business completed the first decade in the history of Florida Gulf Coast University, it's an exciting time in the life of our college. We continue to move forward with the design and construction of Lutgert Hall, the future home of the College of Business. We are forging important academic and business community relationships at the local, regional, and international level that exposes our students, faculty, and staff to contemporary business practices across different economies and cultures. Most importantly, we continue to attract high-quality faculty dedicated to teaching and scholarship that highlight vibrant, relevant business education at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
Our accreditation by AACSB International, the "gold standard" for U.S. business schools, assures current and future students of our commitment to providing a quality business educational experience that will serve them well in the 21st-century global economic environment. We are energized by the opportunity to enhance the professional workforce for Southwest Florida, and beyond.
The Florida Gulf Coast University Lutgert College of Business is dedicated to providing technologically progressive educational programs and services designed to enhance the skills and competencies of university students and working professionals in the five-county region of Southwest Florida. We achieve this through a variety of flexible partnerships, programs, and scholarship within a 'second circle' international partnership model that bridges the university and the domestic and international community in a technologically advanced and rapidly changing global economy.
The Lutgert College of Business will help set new standards of excellence with its academic programs, faculty accomplishments, and student success, while continuously reflecting the dynamic environment of modern business opportunities. The college's model of partnership with its external business constituents will be a national benchmark that will constantly bring powerful new knowledge into our undergraduate and graduate learning. The college will be an international leader in innovative ways of integrating technology and global awareness into the business education experience.
