A Welcome from the Dean of Business

Nancy Murray

Our strong faculty are committed to your success and make you their top priority.  Faculty include distinguished scholars, dynamic teachers and seasoned practitioners from the world of business.

We have designed our business programs to provide the critical skills that companies rely on in order to keep pace in a dynamic and fast changing global economy.

Access and affordability are part of Fitchburg State’s core values. We provide you with an educational experience that guides you in becoming  a responsible and responsive global leader who positively impacts employees, customers, owners, and communities.

Our residential campus environment and laboratories provide the collaborative and supportive climate for the face-to-face teaching and learning experience we’ve been known for since 1894.

This enduring commitment to teaching and learning has been brought online to expand access to those seeking the flexibility due to work or family obligations. Regardless the pathway, we are also using technology to keep costs down with data tools that help us continuously improve scheduling while providing better ways for you to monitor progress towards completing your degree on time and at the lowest costs.

We love what we do here at Fitchburg State and we take pride in fostering a sense of belonging and sustaining our culture of excellence in teaching. This commitment to teaching excellence is emphasized in our laboratories where we focus on collaboration and creativity. We believe this emphasis on collaboration and creativity is the key to global and civic awareness that drives the innovation that helps us tackle big societal challenges.

Again, welcome to Fitchburg State and thanks for choosing us for your educational journey. We are partners on your journey and you’ll see that your success is our success and that the relationships you form here at Fitchburg State will endure far beyond your course of study.
