Dean’s Message

Scott Beaulier, PhD - Dean

Welcome to the College of Business at North Dakota State University!

I am thrilled to invite you to join our academic and professional community, which is based in Richard H. Barry Hall in downtown Fargo and provides students and stakeholders with relevant curricula, basic and applied scholarship, and engaged service.

The College of Business is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International and enrolls more than 1,500 undergraduate students and nearly 100 graduate students. Our distinguished faculty offer students a rigorous, practical business training. We are dedicated to excellence in teaching, and our faculty work closely with students in collaborative research, internships, and extracurricular affairs. As a College, we prepare the next generation of business leaders through a range of innovative undergraduate academic degree programs, graduate programs like our Master of Business Administration and Master of Accountancy, and through international partnerships.

Our engaged faculty, first-class urban campus environment, and committed support staff allow our students to interact with industry leaders and nationally recognized scholars. We take great pride in the programs we offer and in the services we provide our students, alumni, and community. We are training our students to be careful, entrepreneurial thinkers in all walks of life. Whether it be running their own business or working for a Fortune 500 company, our business students are prepared to be innovative, and our NDSU alumni graduate with both strong technical training in their fields and also a set of core values that guide them in their endeavors. Combine this training with our geographic location in downtown Fargo—a hub for entrepreneurship across the Midwest and Plains—and it is clear that the College of Business offers real value as a place to study and prepare for a successful life.

I encourage you to browse our web site or stop by the College of Business to learn more about what we have to offer. And, please feel free to contact me in the Dean’s Office any time if you would like to learn more about the College of Business.
