At Colorado State University’s College of Business, we know business with a conscience changes the world for good every day. We instill this message in our students, who become graduates, who become employees and leaders who use what they’ve learned here to make a difference.
The idea that business can transform lives has guided the College since it was founded in 1966. Since then, we’ve continually challenged ourselves to find new and innovative ways to offer students the best possible business education. Never content to settle for the status quo, our faculty and staff put their research insights and professional skills to use in creating opportunities for experiential learning inside and outside the classroom.
The College of Business engages and connects with students inside and outside the classroom, from expanding access to education through our Mosaic classroom and developing student leadership skills and networks with extracurriculars to broadening horizons and providing hands-on learning with case studies and study abroad, Together, we build a sense of community, pursue our goals and continue our tradition of excellence.
