Vision and Mission


The College of Business at the University of Rhode Island aspires to be among the top flagship public colleges in the nation by fostering a community of diverse and innovative business leaders and scholars who will be life-long learners impacting Rhode Island and the world.


The College of Business creates and disseminates knowledge to guide current and future business leaders and scholars who will be life-long learners, impacting Rhode Island, the region, and the world. We prepare our students to be effective communicators and critical thinkers who can perform independently or as members of a team to solve business and societal problems. We engage with local and global communities to enhance value for all of our stakeholders. We inspire our graduates to be globally informed, innovative, ethical, and socially-conscious life-long learners.
