Dean's Message

In many ways, the College of Business and Economics is unique among America's business programs.

Paul Barrett Paul T. Barrett, Dean
  • It is accredited by AACSB International, the premier accrediting body for business schools nationally and internationally. Overall, less than 5 percent of all business schools worldwide are AACSB accredited.
  • The College of Business & Economics and the University have preserved the intimacy, sense of community, and quality of life associated with high quality private universities. U.S. News and World Report ranks Longwood among the best of all regional public universities in the South.
  • Our highly acclaimed internship program enables students to practice their business skills and apply their knowledge in the real business world.
  • With ten business & economics student organizations, CBE students have the opportunity to practice leadership skills and make life-long friends.

The forces of globalization and technological innovation are radically changing the environment of business. Today's students will become tomorrow's leaders helping to shape the new economy and the world of business. For those interested in seizing the opportunities presented by these new challenges, the College of Business and Economics is the right choice. Our graduates are prepared to help shape the future!
