The Cameron School of Business is a comprehensive business school offering undergraduate degrees in business administration and economics, as well as a Master of Business Administration, Master of Science in accountancy and a Master of Science in computer science and information systems. The school is committed to the highest quality business education for its students. Its primary goal is to enable students to discover how to learn and, in the process, to instill both the desire and capacity for lifelong learning and development. Its first priority is excellence in teaching.

The school works continuously to maintain a vibrant curriculum, which focuses on application of concepts as well as theoretical development. It maintains a scope which includes regional, national, and international perspectives within an evolving global business community. The school strives for balance in the teaching of knowledge about business management and management perspectives, and analytical and interpersonal skills, as it prepares students to make the transition to socially responsible citizenship. To that end, the school encourages intellectual curiosity; creative, rational, and ethical thinking; and thoughtful oral and written expression.

The school encourages the continuous improvement of teaching methods in order to maintain its competitive advantage and to enhance its several strengths: small classes, knowledgeable and experienced faculty, concerned and caring counseling by an approachable and accessible faculty and staff, and vigorous interactive involvement of faculty and staff as well as students in the learning process. The school encourages and supports applied and theoretical research to strengthen teaching and to contribute to the extension of knowledge in its disciplines. Through research, publication, participation in programs of professional organizations, and other scholarly activity, faculty members remain current and sustain their intellectual vigor, both in and out of the classroom.

The school seeks to contribute to the economic development of the region by providing programs and services to the local and regional business community. Through strengthening ties with the business community, the school stimulates awareness of available programs and services and ensures that such programs and services remain responsive to the needs of the region.
