Our Mission

The Tabor School of Business creates opportunities for students to perform and compete, early and often, to build the confidence to succeed. We expect commitment, hard work, accountability, and honesty.

Tabor Focus

Students learn and develop successful business practices. Students will be better prepared for their career path when they perform what they have learned. Performance Learning projects include student-run ventures, small business consulting teams, client projects, internships, auditing projects, business plans, student-managed investment fund, and numerous other opportunities to demonstrate their learning. Tabor students develop skills and attitudes needed to compete and succeed in the workplace by:

  • Doing in-field work early and often.
  • Customizing their experience by learning marketable skills through certificates.
  • Take an optional fifth year and complete a Master’s of Business Administration (MBA).
