You will work with experienced and highly-trained professors who want to see you succeed. Faculty members in the College of Business care about teaching and your success.

Their main goal is to provide a challenging learning environment that is responsive to your needs and to the needs of the national and international business communities. They will work closely with you to ensure that you acquire the knowledge and skills that will serve you well in whatever career you choose.

You will have access to excellent facilities. Most of your classes meet in the new Bank of America Building a modern facility that houses multi-media classrooms with distance-learning capabilities, seminar rooms, faculty offices, student lounge, study carrels and state-of-the-art computer facilities. Students also have access to the Delaware Center for Enterprise Development and the Small Business Development Center located in downtown Dover. Hospitality and Tourism Management majors can take advantage of our state-of-the-art kitchen and restaurant facilities in the Bank of America Building.

You will study with students from a variety of backgrounds. Most of your fellow students in the College of Business have come to DSU directly from high schools in Delaware, other parts of the United States, and other parts of the world. However, some of your fellow students will be adults who have returned to school after raising families, completing military careers, or gaining other kinds of work experience. One of the many benefits of attending a university is learning to see things from other peoples point of view. The variety of backgrounds you will encounter in the College of Business will help you do just that.
