The Charles H. Lundquist College of Business (also known as the Lundquist College of Business) is the University of Oregon's business school. Founded in 1914, the Lundquist College offers undergraduate degree programs in business administration and accounting, as well as MBA, Executive MBA, Master of Science in Sports Product Management, Master of Accounting, Master of Science in Finance, and PhD graduate programs. These degree programs are supported by four departments (finance, management, marketing, and operations and business analytics) and one school of accounting.
The Lundquist College of Business draws strength from its links to the Pacific Rim and the distinctive qualities of Oregon culture: innovation, sustainability, active lifestyles, and financial stewardship.
The college is accredited through the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Roughly 5% of the world's business schools have this accreditation. Additionally, the accounting program is also accredited though AACSB.
The college is housed in the Lillis Business Complex. The college's current dean is Sarah E. Nutter. Nutter joined the Lundquist College as dean on January 17, 2017.
According to the 2022 US News and World Report rankings of undergraduate business programs, the college is ranked 41st nationally. In 2015, the Princeton Review named the Oregon MBA program first in the United States in the Green MBA category.
The college is home to four centers of excellence (Center for Sustainable Business Practices, James H. Warsaw Sports Marketing Center, Lundquist Center for Entrepreneurship, and Cameron Center for Finance and Securities Analysis) that advance an "experiential learning" approach to business education. The Warsaw Sports Marketing Center was the first program of its kind housed within a U.S. college of business. Founded in 1993, the Warsaw Sports Marketing Center provides a platform for both research and education focused on the $500 billion sports business industry. The most recent Sports Business global rankings of sports master's programs published in September 2021, placed the Oregon MBA's sports business track (coordinated by the Warsaw Center) among the top seven programs in the world.
Each year, the college's Lundquist Center for Entrepreneurship presents the New Venture Championship, an investment competition for graduate students that draws competitors from all over the world.
The Department of Accounting offers a one-year Masters of Accounting (MAcc) program allowing accounting students to earn enough credits for CPA eligibility in the State of Oregon. In addition, the Beta Alpha Psi Chapter is the second oldest in the nation.
The Lundquist College of Business operates its Oregon Executive MBA program in Portland, Oregon. The program for working professionals, located at the Oregon Business Institute in downtown Portland was formerly a partnership of Oregon State University, Portland State University, and the University of Oregon and is now solely a program of the Lundquist_College_of_Business. In the 2016, the Oregon Executive MBA Program and Master of Science in Sports Management program relocated to a new building across the street from the White Stag Block, where the rest of UO's Portland programs are based.
Before students can declare their major as either Business or Accounting they must declare their major as "Pre-Business". As Pre-Business students, students complete their "lower division core" and supporting coursework. Students must take four business courses, 75 credits, and maintain a 3.0 GPA before they can major in either Business or Accounting.
The undergraduate program offers BA/BS degrees in business administration and accounting.
According to USNews, the undergraduate program is ranked 41st out of 514 programs nationwide in 2021. Among public universities it is ranked 26th.
The undergraduate program is primarily a two-year program. Over one thousand students are enrolled as Pre-Business majors in the College. However, not all Pre-Business majors become Business or Accounting majors.
There are also 900+ students enrolled in minors programs at the College. Students may earn a minor in business administration, sports business, entrepreneurship, or sustainable business.
The incoming Two-Year Program class of 2021 had an average GMAT score of 615.
