School of Business

Welcome to the School of Business

At Norfolk State's School of Business, we enroll over 900 baccalaureate students in six areas of concentration: Accountancy, Entrepreneurship, Finance, Management, Marketing, and Management Information Systems. We're proud of our programs, and the School has distinguished itself in a number of ways. NSU was one of the nation's first Historically Black Colleges and Universities to have its business school accredited by AACSB-International, the field's premier accrediting body.


AACSB accreditation serves as the hallmark of excellence in business education. We remain the region's only AACSB-accredited business school to offer a concentration in Entrepreneurship, and we are the first HBCU in the nation to have an Entrepreneur-in-Residence Program. Housed in the Ernest M. Hodge Institute for Entrepreneurship, the EIRP enables our students to serve as consultants to prospective entrepreneurs as well as to actual for- and not-for-profit businesses seeking growth opportunities in the Hampton Roads area.

In addition to the above programs and concentrations that are accredited by AACSB International, the Business School also administers a Bachelor of Science degree in Tourism and Hospitality.

Our Focus

To meet our commitments, the School of Business focuses on excellence in teaching and learning. Nothing is more important than what happens in our classrooms. Our faculty members engage in scholarly and practice-oriented research, benefit from ongoing professional development, and are involved on a regular basis with the business community. It is the faculty's dedication to life-long learning and the delivery of leading-edge content that ensures our students a state-of-the-art education.
