Dean's Message

Welcome to the College of Business and Technology or CBAT, as we at ETSU often refer to our College. Our vision is to be “Nationally and Regionally recognized as a preeminent College of Business and Technology in learning, creative activity/scholarship, and engagement.” This is an ambitious vision but we are an ambitious College.

CBAT is home to a very dedicated and talented faculty, staff, and students. The Departments of Accountancy, Economics and Finance, Management and Marketing, Computing, Engineering, Technology, Surveying and Digital Media, and Military Science serve over 2200 undergraduate and graduate students.  To all first time visitors to our website, I encourage you to explore our academic and engagement programs and opportunities. We welcome the opportunity to serve or collaborate.

Our faculty and staff are first and foremost sincerely dedicated to the success of our students. The world class faculty within our College, while being dedicated and talented classroom teachers, are also leaders in producing relevant scholarship and creative works. I personally benefited from the teaching and scholarly excellence of our faculty. I am an alumnus twice, earning baccalaureate and master’s degrees.

In addition to excellence in the classroom and lab, the faculty and staff of CBAT are also committed to producing applied research and innovations which supports and promotes economic development within our region of the State and beyond. In other words, we are a College which thinks globally and responds to the educational, economic and societal needs regionally.

If you are interested in learning more about our College, please don’t hesitate to contact me or one of our excellent staff. I hope to see you on campus in the near future.

Go Bucs!!!!
