Charles Albert Reid School of Business

Academic programs in the Charles Albert Reid School of Business are designed to prepare students with the knowledge, skills, and abilities for responsible citizenship and leadership roles in ever-changing business and society. Performance expectations are high for both students in the programs and for graduates in their careers. The program’s design provides a broad foundation in general business knowledge within the areas of business, finance, economics, management, and accounting. More specific areas of emphasis within a major are available (finance and economics, human resource management, and management), as well as a full major in accounting. The student’s major area of study provides competency in a specific field.  The School of Business has a student chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), and several students typically attend each meeting of the Owensboro chapter of SHRM.
