The Dillard Difference

Relevant, Responsive, and Right for the 21st Century.

That is the Dillard Difference. 

We are Relevant. 

At the Dillard College of Business Administration, our students, faculty, staff and administration strive to illustrate the professionalism, relevancy, appropriateness, and creativity needed to flourish in a progressive educational and business environment. 

From dynamic classroom teachings by experienced faculty, to learning beyond the classroom through partnerships with local businesses, organizations, and internships, our students are equipped and prepared to analyze and evaluate problems and opportunities present in the business world today. 

We are Responsive.

With a vast business environment so rapidly developing, it is important to be active, informative, adaptive and expansive. At the Dillard College of Business Administration these principles are exhibited through our use of academic programs that reflect a commitment to excellence. Our students’ futures and successes are dependent upon these pledges and we take great pride in being proactive in establishing our students’ foundations.

Our business auxiliary centers, such as, the Munir Abdul Lalani Center for Entrepreneurship and Free Enterprise, the Bureau of Business and Government Research, Mamie Raborn Center for Economic Education, Small Business Development Center, and the Center for Management and Leadership provide our community with indications, forecasts, and publications of the latest business news. These centers aid in the vitality of our region and support the economic development needed to sustain it.

Through collaboration with local business leaders, work with the DCOBA Business Advisory Board, and the DCOBA Student Advisory Board, suggestions and initiatives for strategy and image are enacted through regularly scheduled planning and participation.

We are Right for the 21st Century.
