College of Business and Industry

The College of Business and Industry is comprised of three professionally oriented, academic units – The College of Business and Industry, The Department of Communication, and The Department of Applied Engineering.  All are accredited by prestigious International accrediting agencies. Our goal is to provide our students quality internships and employment opportunities. We are committed to continuously improving the quality of our academic programs, our student support services, and our partnership networks with local and regional professional communities. We want to thank our partner, Progress Bank, for helping us bring Handshake to the College of Business and Industry. 

Due to the destruction of the March 19, 2018 tornadoes, the College of Business and Industry had to be relocated to the old Kitty Stone Elementary School until a new building was able to be constructed. Now that construction has begun, current plans and updates on our new home will be posted for students, parents and faculty to follow the progress.
