Welcome to the School of Business at The University of North Carolina at Pembroke. My name is Ramin Cooper Maysami and I serve as Dean of the School.
The mission of the School of Business is to provide each student an outstanding business education, and our Strategic Plan (PDF) calls for providing academic programs that meet or exceed AACSB International standards, offered in a variety of delivery modes to serve the needs of our region and prepare students for successful business careers.
The School of Business is accredited by the Association for Advancement of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). AACSB accreditation differentiates business and accounting programs from those at other institutions in terms of quality, rigor, and relevance. Only five percent of business schools worldwide are accredited by AACSB international.
The School of Business values internationalization to prepare students for a competitive global environment, diversity to enrich personal growth and enhance the learning experience, ethical decision making to prepare students to serve as business leaders, and scholarship to benefit our students’ education.
We also value and provide a personal learning environment where each student’s success matters, as well as engagement in service that adds value to our institution, professions, and communities.
The School offers the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration(BSBA), with concentrations in Economics, Entrepreneurship, Finance, International Business, Management, or Marketing and the Bachelor of Science in Accounting (BSA). In addition, we offer the Master of Business Administration (MBA).
We also provide several minors to serve the needs of non-business majors who desire to learn about various functional areas of business administration, such as economics, entrepreneurship, finance, marketing, or management as well as an all-around minor in Business Administration.
The Thomas Family Center for Entrepreneurship (TFCE) is a part of the School of Business that provides entrepreneurial development. Its ambition is to stimulate entrepreneurial thinking among the UNCP student body as well as to assist and support entrepreneurs and new ventures in the Southeastern North Carolina region.
I encourage you to follow the links to learn about our programs, award winning students and faculty, scholarships, study abroad opportunities, and much more.
