SCHOOL OF BUSINESS
Acting Dean: Cammie Oxendine
of Business is composed
of three departments offering the Bachelor of Science degree in either Business
Administration or Accounting.
The University of North
Carolina at Pembroke also offers the Master of
Business Administration (M.B.A.).
Students should consult the School
of Graduate Studies
section of the catalog to obtain information about academic requirements for
the MBA program.
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. The mission of the TFCE is focused on
education, research, planning, and community engagement. For more information on the TFCE, see the
Academic Services section of the catalog.
The School of Business
offers the Bachelor of Science degree with a major in either Accounting or
Business Administration. Business
Administration majors must choose a track in Economics, Finance, Information
Technology Management, International Business, Management, or Marketing.
Students who want to have more than one track must successfully complete all
requirements for each, plus at least 12 additional unduplicated hours for the
second track. A minimum of 50% of the semester hours in the Business major must
be taken at UNCP.
The School of Business
offers minors in Business Administration, Economics, and Marketing for
non-Business majors only. Business majors cannot obtain a minor from the School of Business.
The School of Business offers a 15-hour Entrepreneurship
Certificate Program (ECP) and an 18-hour Entrepreneurship Minor that provide
UNCP students in good standing from all majors the opportunity to learn how to
start and manage their own businesses.
The basic core of business
studies emphasizes the broad background needed for successful competition in
the dynamic work‑world as well as preparation for further study in
graduate programs. Another objective is to render service beyond the University
and within the surrounding business community. Through evening and online
degree programs in management (see Evening and Distance Programs), the School of Business serves students who are unable
to attend daytime classes. Further assistance is supplied in placement services
and special consultation to the business community at large.
Prospective students are
strongly urged to consult a member of the faculty as soon as possible. To
follow the courses in the necessary order, it is best to begin planning early.
