Dean's Welcome


Ahmad ToontoochiI am proud to welcome you to the College of Business website. Our faculty and staff are united in serving our college’s mission “to develop students who think critically, act ethically, and contribute to evolving public and private sector environments.”

We prepare our students to be successful professionals who advance in their chosen careers or continue on to post-graduate studies. Our faculty are excellent teachers who keep current in their disciplines through research or through active professional involvement. Our staff members deliver friendly support to our student body. Our programs encourage students to be engaged in their community by providing their budding expertise, under faculty supervision, to solving real problems for real business firms, cities, counties, and not-for-profit service providers. Our programs seek innovative teaching solutions to deliver content to students with diverse backgrounds and a host of personal constraints and to allow them to be successful in their chosen field of study.

We take great pride in the fact that we just celebrated our 50th anniversary. We can boast that we have served successive generations of students, from baby boomers to Gen Z, have served them well and plan to continue doing so!

“Focusing on the region – open to the world!”
