About the College

Bexell Hall frontWelcome to the College of Business at Oregon State University. Our students graduate understanding that what they do beyond the classroom can make an impact on the world - and that the tools to create sustainable, socially conscious businesses were woven into their education.

Over the last several years, the College of Business has grown in size, impact and reputation. Like the rest of our university, the college attracts increasingly higher achievers with particular excellence in such areas as accounting, entrepreneurship, finance, management, and marketing.

The MBA program is now at capacity and preparing for further growth. The college approved new majors in business information systems, management, finance, and marketing. With the addition of these four degrees, the college now offers more undergraduate majors than any other college of business in the Oregon University System. Adding to its momentum, the college recently received reaffirmation of accreditation by the premier accrediting agency for degree programs in business schools, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.

To significantly differentiate the college, we have several outreach programs.  Through both formal and informal curriculum, the Austin Entrepreneurship Program at Weatherford Residential College is an entrepreneurial center where students, faculty and visiting professionals live, dine, learn and dream together in an incubator community.  Our world-class Austin Family Business Program offers workshops and resources for family enterprises throughout the region. Our Business Solutions Group provides internships to more than 50 students while offering software development and product testing expertise for Fortune 500 companies, the Oregon Department of Transportation and more.  Finally, our Close to the Customer Project supplies professional market research and consulting services to clients throughout the state delivered by faculty/student teams.
