In the Bisk College of Business at Florida Tech, we believe that learning is more than courses, degree programs, and curriculum. Rather, learning is the essence of taking full advantage of faculty whose passion is to transfer knowledge, enhance your critical thinking skills, improve your ability to communicate both orally and written. In order for that goal to occur, students must have a passion for learning. It is within ourselves that makes learning a sustainable core of knowledge that is embedded in your memory forever. It is with the premise that learning is important, that our faculty strive to deliver an outstanding business education.
Business careers offer students a broad array of opportunities to increase personal wealth and add value to shareholders. Think of the possibilities in accounting as a Certified Public Accountant, finance, as a Certified Financial Analyst, a wall street broker, a venture capitalist, a marketing strategist, marketing program manager, a vice-president of sales, and a Chief Executive Officer of a company. Think of how business people commercialize technology, analyze the market for new growth opportunities, and take advantage of an economy created to generate wealth creation.
We bring the business world into the classroom providing a wide range of educational opportunities that are relevant and timely in addressing today’s complex problems. Students learn to think critically, work effectively in teams, and are encouraged to create and innovate to explore new opportunities in our rapidly changing, technology-driven world.
