Message from the Dean
Educating South Jersey’s next generation of business people has been part of Stockton University since its beginnings nearly 50 years ago. The School of Business has been a destination for future business leaders for nearly 20 years, with a clear focus and vigor on serving business students and the greater Atlantic City and South Jersey region.
We are committed to developing forward-thinkers and innovators who are prepared to solve problems and lead within a global environment. Our innovative, integrative curriculum combines business studies and the liberal arts with an emphasis on experiential learning, leadership and teamwork, and global perspectives. Our faculty are dedicated world-class teachers and scholars who are committed to student success.
The School of Business offers undergraduate programs in Business Studies, Hospitality and Tourism Management, Computer Science, Computer Information Systems and a graduate MBA program. Besides acquiring competencies in their chosen business major, our students also are skilled in critical thinking, communication, thinking globally, working within a diverse workforce and understanding the greater world around them.
I am especially proud of our faculty who excel in the classroom, taking advantage of Stockton’s small classes to provide class experiences tailored to their students with personal attention. Beyond the classroom, we offer a broad range of student activities that support and encourage connections to the business world and providing leadership development opportunities. Stockton’s faculty and Centers are connected to and work with the Atlantic City, South Jersey, and even global business community. In short, we provide an educational experience with local roots but global in scope.
Stockton University's School of Business (Business Studies, HTMS and MBA Program) is one of only 5% of all business programs in the world with the prestigious accreditation by AACSB International – the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. The AACSB Accreditation is an internationally-recognized distinction among business schools around the world that pursue excellence and continuous academic improvement of their business programs. At Stockton, we are proud to be among the world’s best.
In the School of Business at Stockton University, we recognize that our community's success rests on how the School of Business values, engages, and includes the diversity of students, faculty, staff, and alumni. We aim to achieve equity in access, student success, and high-quality learning for each of our students. To do so, we know we cannot go it alone, which is why we seek collaboration, partnership, and investment from our community in Atlantic City, South Jersey, and beyond.
