Why ISU College of Business?

Right priorities

"Students are our priority. Everything we do comes back to making the College of Business a dynamic, open, rich context for student learning," says Dean Tom Ottaway. "Email me with any questions you have, and I'll be happy to answer."

Accessibility and relationships

Our faculty give students new ideas, big dreams and technological possibilities. With a low student-faculty ratio of 14.2 to 1, our students enjoy the kind of accessibility and relationships with their instructors that other schools simply cannot provide.

Inspired faculty

High-quality instruction is a hallmark of the ISU College of Business. Faculty members have an average of over 15 years of teaching experience and more than 85 percent hold a doctoral degree in their specific field. Faculty have professional business experience, certifications, published research papers, articles and books to enrich the courses they teach.

Building leaders

Unlike other business schools, we provide a unique, coordinated course sequence that reinforces critical thinking, writing, communication and presentation skills in order to best prepare students to jump on the fast track for leadership positions.

Intellectual assets and modern technology

Students share ideas throughout their coursework and utilize laptop computers extensively, making learning flourish in a modern business environment.


Accredited by AACSB International, the ISU College of Business is rightfully known as "one of the best business schools in the world."
