The Franklin P. Perdue School of Business was established in 1986 through a multimillion dollar fund created to ensure excellence within the academic programs of the school.
Our Business Programs are accredited by AACSB International, the premiere accrediting agency for business schools. AACSB affirms that the Perdue School demonstrates a distinguished level of performance in its graduate and undergraduate programs.
It is the largest college-level center for business education and development in the region and is committed to an emphasis on the entrepreneurial spirit, integration of theoretical and applied study, and community-based experience. To these ends, the school provides an academic program which responds to the highest standards of business education and provides for student interaction with the business world. Courses are designed to encourage students to think clearly, show sound judgment, communicate verbally and in writing, develop interpersonal skills and make rational decisions under conditions of uncertainty. Students graduate with ethical and motivational foundations underlying service to business, government and the community.
Building Knowledge Through Experience
The PSB empowers students to become successful contributors in a global and dynamic environment by equipping them to apply knowledge gained both inside and outside the classroom.
As a regional undergraduate and graduate business school, we accomplish this by:
providing applied learning experiences for students through internships, service learning, engaging classroom activities, and outreach opportunities
supporting meaningful extracurricular experiences, both individual and team-based, through participation in academic competitions and student organizations as well as leadership opportunities
creating both high quality and high value education through small classes, inspired teaching, and dedication to learning
utilizing current technology so students understand its power to support decision making as well as to facilitate learning
building a solid ethical foundation
instilling a global perspective through coursework and opportunities for international experience for both students and faculty
encouraging faculty development and scholarship that both informs and inspires our teaching
nurturing a collegial and respectful environment for faculty, staff and students
advancing mutually beneficial relationships with external constituents including the business community and alumni
