A message from the Dean of the Gordon Ford College of Business

Welcome to the Gordon Ford College of Business! Thank you for taking the time to visit our website.

As you will see and read, our college is internationally recognized for excellent business and accounting programs that prepare students for long-term career success. We take special pride in our highly qualified faculty, engaged students, and professional academic advisors that make the learning experience at our college truly unique. Our students have the opportunity to participate in many special programs that supplement their in-class learning experiences. For example, our Enactus program has consistently been recognized as one of the best in the country.

We are especially proud of our applied Centers for Excellence. They give students in-depth exposure to world-class faculty and programs in cutting edge areas that include: Entrepreneurship and Innovation, Financial Success, Professional Selling, Applied Economics, the Study of Capitalism, and Leadership. Our unique combination of classroom learning matched with real-world exposures through guest speakers, internships, and study abroad programs makes our college truly distinctive.

Our AACSB International accreditation in business and accounting places the Gordon Ford College of Business among the most elite collegiate business schools in the world. In fact, GFCB is one out of only 178 colleges worldwide to have achieved this distinction. The accreditation signifies our ongoing commitment to high quality programs that meet the needs of our students, the business community, and society.

On behalf of our faculty, staff and students, you have my personal invitation to visit our college to experience the opportunities we offer for your future. I am certain you will be impressed by the friendliness and dedication of everyone you meet.
