A Legacy of Distinction

Welcome to the Gordon Ford College of Business! Thank you for taking the time to visit our website.

From its founding in 1884 until today, the Gordon Ford College of Business has provided a distinctive educational experience for its students. The GFCB focuses its efforts on helping students apply classroom concepts to real-world business problems and scenarios. The unique combination of classroom teaching and hands-on application ensures a one-of-a-kind educational experience that cannot easily be duplicated. 

From the first time a student walks into a Grise Hall classroom until donning the cap and gown at commencement, the faculty and staff challenge students to remain engaged, empowered, and equipped to take advantage of all the College has to offer. 

The Gordon Ford College of Business has established deep roots that have allowed it to grow and thrive throughout its 136-year history. The accomplishments it enjoys today result from the dedication and hard work of many faculty, staff, students, and alumni who believe in its mission: to be a leader in providing high-quality, applied undergraduate business education and select graduate programs that meet the needs of the business community.
