The vision of the School of Business is defined and necessarily directed by the historical mission and core values of Howard University. As such, the School of Business must strive for excellence in providing management education and in producing research that seeks a solution to global business problems. The School's vision provides that the School of Business develop an agenda that reflects the needs of its core constituency (African Americans and people of color) and is recognized as a school of choice (undergraduate and graduate) by this constituency. Further, the School of Business must be a major contributor to the dialogue concerning economic empowerment for people of color and must also be recognized for producing research on economic empowerment and entrepreneurship. To summarize, the School of Business must create uniqueness in business education, research, and service that only Howard University can provide.
