Welcome to the College of Business!

The College of Business (CoB), FSU’s newest college, is home to three academic departments with eight undergraduate programs of study. The 800 undergraduate majors and 100 graduate students in the CoB share a common interest in the multi-faceted world of business. Students in the CoB have a diverse array of opportunities to learn about financial markets, business ethics, the global dimensions of business, data analytics, economics, strategic decision-making, marketing, principles of management, information management tools, and teamwork. Students in the CoB have a wide range of options for internships with local businesses or with one of FSU’s academic centers, such as the MetroWest Economic Research Center (MERC) or the Entrepreneur Innovation Center (EIC). Students have the opportunity to work closely with our accomplished and talented faculty to present research at national conferences; to get coached by top industry executives; and to learn about the international world of business by studying abroad. Most of our programs are accredited by the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE) and are designed to prepare students for all of the challenges and rewards of the workplace of today and the future.
