Delaplaine School of Business

Targeted & Endowed Academic Excellence: Expand The George B. Delaplaine Jr. School of Business

The George B. Delaplaine Jr. School of Business is growing fast to respond to our market, with undergraduate degrees in accounting, business administration, economics and integrated marketing communications. The Delaplaine School also offers a well-respected Master of Business Administration (MBA), a graduate-level project management certificate, and supports the College’s doctoral program in organizational leadership and business administration.

Our Vision

Increase fast-growing business programs and spur social entrepreneurship in the region. Social ventures organizations that seek to provide systemic solutions to achieve a sustainable, social objective, have rapidly risen to account for more than a third of all new U.S.  entrepreneurial activity. This shift in business mindset demands new leadership and new ideas. The George B. Delaplaine Jr. School of Business is uniquely positioned and poised to prepare students for this new economy. Through an integrated learning approach that combines a strong grounding in the liberal arts with advanced study in the major and opportunities for internships and research, we are preparing future business leaders for lives of purpose and civic engagement, while also providing a solid foundation to all students through the liberal arts curriculum. With your support, these plans will be realized, including the following:

  • Bachelor's Degree in Finance
  • Data Driven Frederick
  • Creation of an Event & Sports Management Concentration
  • Dean of The George B. Delaplaine Jr. School of Business
