Dr. Stephen P. Ferris
Dean, Eberly College of Business

I am pleased to welcome you to the Eberly College of Business, where we take pride in our tradition of preparing our students for success as leaders, entrepreneurs, and executives. Our curriculum is focused on student success, encouraging Eberly students to succeed in a digital, global, and innovative work environment. The Eberly College is highly regarded, with both its accounting and business programs accredited by AACSB-International, the premier accrediting body for collegiate schools of business. Indeed, only about 30 percent of business schools in the US are accredited by AACSB.

The Eberly College of Business offers bachelor’s, MBA, and PhD programs across a variety of business disciplines. Over 25,000 Eberly alumni have achieved career and professional success, providing leadership within a variety of industries and organizations. Our alumni are spread across Pennsylvania, throughout the US as well as over 50 different nations. Eberly alumni are a source of inspiration to our current students while also providing them with a professional network of mentors, coaches, and employers.

Eberly students are well-prepared to meet the challenges of the twenty-first-century workplace. Our business students develop a deep expertise in their business major of interest: accounting, economics, finance, hospitality management, human resources, international business, management, marketing, small business management, or supply chain management. Further, Eberly students gain the communication skills and analytical competencies that today’s employers demand. Our students are trained to think critically, to apply ethical and analytical constructs, and to be creative in their solutions.

The faculty at Eberly are dedicated teachers, advisers, scholars, and practitioners. They bring a breadth of experience, perspectives, and accomplishments to our classrooms. The Eberly educational infrastructure is state-of-the-art. Students engage in internships as well as leadership and networking opportunities through a variety of student organizations. Eberly’s global footprint helps students to obtain study-abroad opportunities in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and beyond. Eberly College’s distinction is that it provides a “small school environment with big school opportunities!”
