Belltower 30 Years

Blazing Our Own Path

We celebrate 30 Years of leaning into what sets us apart — trailblazing as a Think and Do business school.

Celebrating 30 Years of Poole

NC State Poole College of Management is stronger than ever — leveraging our strengths as an innovative, tech-driven, land-grant institution to serve the evolving needs of students and industry.

Join us for a year-long series of celebrations. We will reflect on our 30 years of growth and look to the future as we strive to make our world a better place to live and work.

4,400+ students

35,000+ alumni

200+ faculty and staff

Instead of bending our mission to match our peers, we’ve leaned into what makes NC State one of the premier institutions in the country – and blazed our own path.
