Dr. Mary KirchnerFounded in 1986, The Charles M. Reeves School of Business and Economics offers accredited Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree programs across a wide range of business disciplines. Over 700 students are currently enrolled from 29 states and 17 countries.

The purpose of the Reeves School of Business is to fashion and nurture the spirit of entrepreneurship and creative economic endeavor. It does so by developing in students an understanding of the modern American economy, an appreciation of its power and institutional structure, and an ability to function effectively in it. The driving force of the United States economy is the entrepreneurial spirit. Without this innovative and creative thrust, whether in a major corporation or a small business, the economy will stagnate. The value of the entrepreneurial spirit is not limited to business. Innovation, creativity, and ethically responsible risk-taking are needed in government, the military, education and the church. The Reeves School of Business is dedicated to the development of this entrepreneurial spirit.
