The College of Business is AACSB-accredited, and is home to over 1300 undergraduate and 90 graduate students. The College partners in interdisciplinary Transportation and Logistics Masters and Ph.D. programs, and collaborates with the College of Pharmacy, Nursing and Allied Sciences Master of Public Health and Pharmacy Doctorate degrees.

Classes take place in Richard H. Barry Hall, the new 135,000-square foot College of Business facility in the heart of downtown Fargo, where strong business tradition meets state-of-the-art classroom facilities. NDSU's College of Business is poised for the next phase of its development as part of an ascending University in a resource-rich state.
