Welcome from the Dean
Welcome to Business and Management Studies at Colorado Technical University and thank you for your interest. We are experiencing an exciting period at the University. Business and Management Studies is taking part in the focus on how business education is being taught and delivered. We have gone beyond the traditional way of teaching business students. We wanted our students to experience their education by engaging in more interactive learning. This is why we invested heavily in adaptive learning software, improved on our award-winning* MUSE technology, integrated problem-based learning models into the curriculum, and put together an advisory board of industry experts to advise us on our curriculum.
We offer the largest selection in the Midwest of project management degree programs that are GAC accredited by PMI. Also, the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) acknowledged that our MBA and BSBA degrees in Human Resource Management are in full alignment with its standards for content that should be studied by undergraduate and graduate-level HR students. We are teaching our students to become more intuitive, to think more critical in how they do business, to approach a project more strategically and to execute on a plan with precision.
If you have any questions about our Business programs, please do not hesitate to contact us. Again, welcome to Colorado Technical University where we pride ourselves on shaping tomorrow’s business leaders.
