Welcome to the NCCU School of Business!
Everything we do here at the North Carolina Central University School of Business is focused on our mission to prepare students for life-long success and a commitment to community service. Our innovative model for business education includes an equal balance of academic preparation and hands-on experience that provides our students with the essentials to make an immediate and sustained contribution to organizations and their communities. Our faculty, staff, board of visitors, discipline advisory councils, corporate partners and friends of the university are engaged in an exciting and collaborative effort to realize our vision: A premier business school that prepares students to achieve success and contribute productively in the global marketplace.
Our learning environment is one that fully engages students in an exciting and demanding community that successfully integrates the theoretical and practical application of the most relevant business topics. The learning environment extends from the classroom to the local, national and international business community – from large global corporations to the most innovative startups. At the NCCU School of Business, we are preparing our students with Real Learning for the Real World!
Our success is measured by what matters most to our students and those who support their educational and life pursuits. Our goal is to place 100 percent of our graduates in one of three avenues of opportunity upon graduation:
1) A job consistent with the student’s academic preparation and chosen profession
2) Participation in an entrepreneurial venture, or
3) Acceptance into a graduate or PhD degree program.
The NCCU School of Business prepares its students with an emphasis on the key ingredients for success in today’s and tomorrow’s business careers. These ingredients include: Entrepreneurial thinking; a global perspective; technology proficiency; integrated business decision making and ethical leadership.
Through the work of our students and faculty, we intentionally serve our community by providing our experience and skills to help make our community a better place to live and work. Our students engage in meaningful community service in keeping with NCCU’s values as expressed in the university motto of Truth and Service.
We believe that our approach to provide real learning for the real world prepares our students to achieve success, make a real impact in the community and contribute to the global marketplace – immediately and for a lifetime. We invite you to join us on this exciting journey.
Again, welcome to the School of Business.
