Mission, Vision, and Values

Mission Statement

The School of Business and Economics (SBE) at Winston-Salem State University, a member of the University of North Carolina system, serves an increasingly diverse student body primarily from the southeastern United States. As part of an institution founded to educate African-American students, the SBE provides undergraduate and graduate students with the knowledge, professional skills, leadership abilities, and practical experiences needed to understand and be successful in the global workplace and to impact the economic growth of the Piedmont region. The success of SBE students is, in part, the result of varied scholarly pursuits of faculty, which emphasize pedagogical and applied research.
