Think. Value.
Communicate. Lead.

In the College of Business at ECU, we shape the leaders of tomorrow.  No matter what career path our students choose, we prepare and challenge them with the necessary skills to think, act, and lead in today's business world.

For more than 75 years, the College of Business has enjoyed a rich tradition. Plus, we are one of only two institutions in North Carolina - and 120 worldwide - that has been continuously AACSB-accredited since 1967 (BSBA, MBA, & MSA are all AACSB accredited). We are an innovator in distance education, too, and take pride in our program's strength, value, and flexibility.

More students are enrolled in the ECU College of Business than in any other business school in the state.

We invite you to come see why!
