As an academic unit at a premier HBCU, our primary role is to educate Black students and thus, accelerate black economic mobility. Our curriculum and co-curricular activities seek to ensure that our faculty and students (without regard to race or economic status) are prepared to work independently and collaboratively with others to identify, explore, and solve problems, thus make a difference in their organizations and communities as espoused by Tuskegee University founder, Dr. Booker T. Washington and The College of Business and Information Science namesake, Andrew F. Brimmer.

The College offers a Bachelor of Science degree in four majors: Business Administration, Computer Science, Computer Science and Information Systems, and Information Technology. The Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration provides four concentrations: Accounting, Economics and Finance, Management, Sales and Marketing, and Supply Chain Management. Our Business program is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB-International), the accrediting body of the premier business programs internationally.

Today, corporations are seeking individuals with broad perspectives of the world. At Tuskegee, we know the best way to achieve that perspective is with a liberal arts education. That's why each program of study in the business school includes a core of liberal arts courses designed to expand critical thinking and to enhance our learners’ writing, research, and speaking skills. With a curriculum that emphasizes collaborative learning based on real-world experience, our graduates are poised to succeed.
