The date in parentheses at the end of each entry is the first year on the University of Oregon faculty.
The business college was established in 1914 as the School of Commerce. The name was changed to the School of Business Administration in 1921, then to the College of Business Administration in 1967. It was renamed the Charles H. Lundquist College of Business in 1994. Its academic programs are accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International—the undergraduate program since 1923, the graduate since 1962. The accounting programs have been separately accredited since 1989.
The Charles H. Lundquist College of Business offers programs of study leading to bachelor’s degrees in accounting and business administration; a master of business administration; and master’s and doctoral degrees in accounting, decision sciences, finance, management, and marketing. These programs provide a broad education in business management augmented by expertise in specific business disciplines. The study of business is supported by a liberal education that provides perspective on the societal effect of economic activity, both domestic and international.
To meet these broad educational objectives, the college requires that undergraduate majors take approximately 50 percent of their academic work outside the college. Within the college, professional courses focus on leadership and communication, knowledge in specific business disciplines, cross-disciplinary integration of business strategies, and the role of business in society. This educational foundation provides students with a skill set facilitating the transition from the university to the business world.
The instructional programs of the college are offered in the Undergraduate School of Business and in the Graduate School of Management, which operates under the direction of the UO Graduate School.
The Lillis Business Complex facilitates the ability of the Lundquist College of Business to deliver a world-class business education to its students. Designed to complement the college’s team-based approach to learning, the complex enhances and enriches the business curriculum.
Faculty members in the Lundquist College of Business carry on active programs of research, and are the recipients of numerous research awards. Their works are published in the leading academic journals of their disciplines, and many serve as editors or on the editorial boards of premier accounting, finance, management, marketing, and operations management journals.
The Lundquist College of Business learning community is committed to a set of core values that guide members’ interactions with one another. These values are as important in the Lundquist College community as they are in the business community. They help define members’ actions in the community and what it means to be a business professional.
Integrity. Members of the Lundquist College community act with integrity and honesty, qualities that are essential in providing a basis for trust and go to the core of what is expected from business professionals.
Respect. Members of the community convey respect for the dignity of others. Relationships are based on mutual respect. Differences of opinion are discussed openly and civilly. These discussions focus on issues and are presented in a courteous manner. Community members are sensitive to the impact of words and actions on others.
Openness. Members of the community are encouraged to exchange ideas freely within the bounds of reasonable behavior, recognizing that learning requires an open environment.
Responsibility. Members act publicly and accept responsibility for their actions, understanding that the community keeps them accountable for their dealings. Members deliver on commitments and promises made to others.
Teamwork. The Lundquist College community is stronger when members work as a team, fostering attitudes that encourage community members to give and receive constructive criticism and develop creative solutions to challenges.

Experiential learning is a cornerstone of the educational experience in the Lundquist College of Business. The college provides undergraduate and graduate students many opportunities to take learning beyond theory through its many student-run clubs and activities, internships, practicums, and most prominently through the Centers for Excellence.
John Hull, Managing Director
The institute integrates two of the signature centers in the Lundquist College of Business, the Center for Sustainable Business Practices and the Lundquist Center for Entrepreneurship, serving as a focal point for managing student-centered projects and activities such as the Technology Entrepreneurship Program, Venture Launch Pathway, Green Product Design Network, and Net Impact.
Laura A. Strohm, Program Manager
The center prepares MBA students to integrate environmental, social, and financial stewardship into competitive business strategies. The center offers a collaborative program focused on supply-chain and operations management, organizational change for sustainability, performance measurement and governance, and life-cycle analysis. Within the Oregon MBA program, the center provides the platform for practical experience on sustainability; it complements the curriculum by giving students real-world experience in industry with consulting projects and internships, seminars, center-sponsored speakers, mentorships, and leadership opportunities.
Nathan Lillegard, Program Manager
Developing new ideas, solving problems, and taking an innovative approach to business is what entrepreneurship is all about.

Courses, internships, Entrepreneurs on Campus, and student-run clubs offer opportunities to develop entrepreneurial skills, attitude, and knowledge. The center’s New Venture Championship is recognized as one of the top two business-plan competitions in the world.

Accounting students are highly recruited by a variety of organizations—taking positions in public accounting firms, industry, and government. Accountants deal with issues ranging from the design of information systems to the formulation of acquisition strategies. Given the growing internationalization of business, career paths can even lead to exciting opportunities abroad. Accounting graduates of the University of Oregon include Phil Knight, Nike cofounder and chairman, and Charles H. Lundquist, the namesake of the UO business college.
The challenging curriculum emphasizes the development of skills in problem solving, analytical reasoning, and written and oral communication. Students participate in various real-world projects and obtain considerable computer experience. The relatively small size of the program allows meaningful student-faculty interaction. The Department of Accounting is one of only 120 accounting programs accredited by AACSB International.
The accounting major is described under Major Requirements in the Undergraduate Programs section of this catalog.

Department of Management courses prepare students for the challenges of managerial responsibility in private and public organizations. They are useful for students who want to develop general management skills that can be applied in a variety of contexts, ranging from new business start-ups to global businesses. Management courses also serve students who are concentrating in other areas of business and who recognize the importance of developing management and leadership skills to enhance their chances for career advancement. Courses focus on such critical management and leadership skills as launching new business ventures, negotiation and conflict resolution, managing in dynamic and changing environments, and international management.
The entrepreneurship concentration prepares students for careers in entrepreneurially driven firms. Examples include new and rapidly growing firms, technology-oriented firms, and family businesses. Special attention is given to venture creation, the unique problems encountered by firms that are growing, and the way sound business principles and strategies can be adapted to fit this environment.
Lynn R. Kahle, Department Head
The Department of Marketing provides undergraduates with concentration areas in marketing and sports business.
The marketing concentration provides preparation for careers in marketing management. Examples of such careers include advertising, professional selling, distribution, and marketing research. Special attention is given to the contributions of the social sciences and of quantitative methods to the study of marketing. The program includes courses on marketing research and strategy, marketing communications, and consumer behavior.
The sports business concentration addresses the use of sports to market goods and services. The successful sports marketer must understand business principles and have a strong sense of how value is created through marketing programs tied to athletes, teams, leagues, and organizations. The concentration presents a rigorous academic curriculum in such areas as sponsorship, sports law, and communications while paying close attention to industry practices and trends. Students who choose this concentration prepare for careers in team marketing, sponsor relations, event marketing, and league operations.
