Anisfield School of Business

ASB Accredited by AACSB International

As a student in the Anisfield School of Business, you will find yourself immersed in innovative learning experiences that will prepare you for success in your career and in life.  Most importantly, your teachers will get to know you—almost all of our classes are 35 students or less.  And we are AACSB accredited, which means that our faculty are active researchers (which keeps them current in their fields) and that we are continuously improving the learning experiences that we produce for you.

If you’ve already decided on a major, that’s great.  Our faculty and advisors will work with you to develop an efficient plan to complete your degree, and we can help you choose a minor, plan a study abroad experience, or find an internship.  And if you want to go into Accounting, you can consider working toward our “4+1” combined B.S./M.S. in Accounting—where you can complete both your undergraduate and Master’s degrees in Accounting in just five years (and get the 150 credits required to become a CPA).

If you haven’t decided on a major, that’s ok too!   By taking our introductory core courses in Accounting, Economics, Business Law, Information Technology Management, and Marketing, you can get an overview of various aspects of the business world.  And we strongly encourage you to meet with faculty to get even more insights into the different major options.

“Being good in business is the most fascinating kind of art.” – Andy Warhol

In the Anisfield School of Business, we are proud to offer a distinctive combination of an accredited business education and a strong grounding in the liberal arts.  Our students receive solid professional preparation in their fields, and they understand the role that business plays in the wider socio-cultural context.  ASB graduates enter the professional world as creative, enlightened thinkers, and their careers are characterized by a blend of business success and social responsibility.
