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 very dedicated and talented faculty, staff, and students. The Departments
of Accountancy, Economics and Finance, Management and Marketing, Computing, Engineering,
Engineering Technology and Surveying, Digital Media and Military Science serve over
2800 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 masters 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 support and
promote 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.
