Tommy & Victoria Baker School of Business

We are part of a teaching institution with a long tradition of high quality education and leadership development. We value teaching first, but recognize that scholarship and service are its essential complements. We encourage and reward all types of scholarship, emphasizing a balance between applied and pedagogical research, with discipline-based scholarship in a supporting role. Our focus on leadership development arises from our historical roots as The Military College of South Carolina. The core undergraduate program requires that all students be members of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets, which serves as a learning laboratory for leadership. We also offer a non-military evening and summer undergraduate program, as well as an excellent graduate program, that focus on leadership development through both coursework and ancillary programs such as our Leadership Forum.

Mission: The mission of The Citadel School of Business Administration (CSBA) is to educate and develop leaders of principle to serve a global community.

The Baker School of Business: adding links to the global chain | The Citadel Today

"The Citadel just awarded its first Supply Chain Management degrees to seven cadets during the 2020 virtual commencement.
