Our Mission Statement
The Southern Illinois University College of Business and Analytics is committed to the highest standards of excellence in pursuing its three core academic functions of teaching, research and service.
From our uniquely situated rural location, we draw students from first generation, diverse and underrepresented populations, from big cities, small towns and rural locations.
We provide broad educational opportunities to prepare our students to make significant contributions to the regional, state, and global economies.
We maintain a vibrant teaching culture, aimed at integrating cutting-edge business knowledge and advanced analytical tools. In line with this, we support a comprehensive student experience with exceptional student services beyond classroom walls.
We encourage and celebrate first-rate scholarship. By recruiting, developing and retaining research-focused faculty, we nurture and reward scholarship with the potential to impact both business and society.
We aspire to accomplish our mission while holding ourselves to the highest standards of integrity and accountability, and with nothing less than a passionate commitment to change lives and help define the future.
