Welcome from the Chair of the Division of Business, Communication, and Government

Welcome to the Business Enterprise program! Our courses in business, accounting, economics, finance, management, marketing, and business education will provide you with the knowledge and skills necessary for a rewarding career. You may ask what you will find here to give you the competitive edge you need in establishing your career. The answer is a highly interactive learning environment featuring a variety of teaching methods with special opportunities for developing your business and leadership skills.
