College of Business

On behalf of the faculty and staff, I’m pleased to welcome current and future students, alumni, donors and employers, as well as our many friends and partners throughout Southeast Texas and beyond to the College of Business at Lamar University.

Dean Henry VentaAs Dean of the College of Business, I am excited about our accomplishments and about the many opportunities we are exploring to strengthen our already top-notch business education. Lamar University offers our students a superior business curriculum and a well-rounded core of arts and sciences in a College of Business that is committed to being an integral part of the business community.

Our primary goal is to ensure that all of our programs continue to serve the evolving and dynamic business marketplace in Southeast Texas, the whole state, across the country and around the world. Lamar University’s College of Business is distinctive because of the many important advantages we offer:

  • A strong and experienced faculty, who are committed to teaching and research, and who care deeply about our students.
  • Full-time faculty teaches more than 80% of our sections, and we maintain a low student-faculty ratio; as a result, students learn in a highly interactive environment that provides close, personal attention.
  • Practical, flexible programs to respond to today's changing marketplace. Both our undergraduate and MBA programs offer full-time and part-time options.
  • An impressive network of accomplished business alumni, whose involvement in the college provides our students with speakers, internships, career opportunities and valuable ongoing support throughout their professional lives.

I hope you will learn more about us as you navigate our web pages. Thank you again for your interest, and I look forward to seeing you on campus very soon!
