Welcome from the Dean
Welcome to the North Carolina State University Poole College of Management and the Jenkins Graduate School of Management. I am pleased that you are interested in our programs and visiting our website. As you browse these web pages, you will find information about our undergraduate and graduate degree programs in accounting, business administration and economics, as well as our Executive Programs, Centers & Initiatives, our faculty, and other details regarding the Poole College community.
In the years since the college was established – in 1992 – our faculty have developed academic programs that prepare our graduates for careers in all the traditional disciplines of business. But what sets us apart is our special focus on the management and commercialization of technology, innovation and entrepreneurship in the global marketplace, with a growing emphasis in sustainability as applied to all our disciplines. Our curriculum, developed by faculty who have real-world experience in business and industry, provides our students with the knowledge, skills and abilities they need to be achievers in whatever endeavors they pursue.
We are dedicated to preparing our students, regardless of their major, to work in a world whose dominant industries will be based on biosciences and other technologies, and whose leaders must also address the related ethical, human, and environmental sustainability issues that come with change.
I invite you to browse our website to learn more about the Poole College of Management. Please do not hesitate to contact me or other members of our academic and administration teams for additional information.
