Vision, Mission and Values

Vision

We will be a leader in integrated business education through innovative and transformational learning experiences that prepare our students to meet the opportunities and challenges of a globally competitive world. We will be responsive to the changing needs of our stakeholders.


Mission

We provide a collaborative learning environment that prepares our students to be responsible leaders, managers, entrepreneurs, and professionals. We prepare our students to succeed personally and professionally and to practice exemplary principles of citizenship.  As a land grant university we have a primary responsibility to serve the citizens of Idaho.  We also recruit students regionally, and we attract students from other states and other countries.

 We accomplish this mission by

  • Delivering a high quality and team-based undergraduate curriculum that integrates accounting, economics, and business disciplines.
  • Delivering and supporting focused graduate and outreach programs that build on our competencies within the college and meet the needs of our stakeholders.
  • Providing experiential learning opportunities for our students.
  • Engaging in research that makes meaningful contributions to management practice and business education.
  • Sharing our business expertise in support of our state, our professions, and the academic community.
