    Your Career

    If you are serious about building a career - not just finding a job - we are serious about helping you. The College of Business is dedicated to transforming your education into a rewarding work life.

    In addition to the support of our faculty and staff, the College of Business has a full-time Director of Professional Development, John Ney. John is fully committed to helping students with internship placement, interview and resume preparation and business etiquette.

    Your Teachers

    Experiential learning is a priority at the COB. From gaining leadership skills though community service projects to offering real-time business consulting to Southeast Idaho businesses, your professors are adept at teaching wherever and whenever there are lessons to be learned.

    With a low student-faculty ratio of 14 to 1, you will enjoy the kind of instructor accessibility that other schools simply cannot provide - in and out of the classroom.

    Your Confidence - AACSB International Accredited

    The ISU College of Business is rightfully known as "one of the best business schools in the world." It was the first Business College in Idaho to receive accreditation from AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) in 1978.

    AACSB accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide. Being an AACSB-accredited means a business school is able to continuously pass a strict set of standards that ensure quality.
