The College of Business welcomed business students on Jan. 10 with its inaugural Declaration Day, at which time eligible undergraduate students officially declare their specific concentration within the College of Business.

The event will be held in both spring and fall semesters going forward.

As part of the event, the College honored students with a pinning ceremony before breaking them into their various concentrations ‒ including accounting, finance, management, management information systems, marketing, and operations and supply chain management. 

Once in smaller groups, students met with faculty members from their new department and learned more about their specialty.

College of Business Dean Dr. Stanley Eakins said, "When our business students declare a concentration, it is a significant event in their progress toward graduation. Declaration Day recognizes this milestone and helps integrate students even more into the College."
