In August 2018 the Cameron School of Business launched a fully online MBA program. The goal of the new program was to extend the reach and impact of the Cameron School within the State of North Carolina.
The Cameron School of Business is pleased to announce that Dr. Nivine Richie has accepted the position of Associate Dean of Graduate Programs in the CSB. Dr. Richie, Ph.D., CFA has most recently served as the Chair of the Department of Economics & Finance and Professor of Finance. She will begin her new appointment on July 1st, 2019.
The Cameron School of Business has a number of new graduate level programs aimed at helping working professionals advance their careers.

UNCW’s Professional MBA (PMBA)program, offered by the Cameron School of Business, provides a valuable asset to Wilmington employers in business, government and not-for-profit sectors.
As with most successful enterprises, the key ingredient to the program’s success begins with the people who participate in the program – both faculty and students.
Business skills and knowledge can apply to countless opportunities, and obtaining a master’s degree can lead to several career paths within or beyond the business world.
If you’re considering a graduate degree in business, you should know what you want to do with the degree and you should ask yourself why.
- Detecting spam and malware.
- Guiding autonomous vehicles.
- Distinguishing between images of cats and dogs.
- Predicting diabetes-related hospital patient readmissions.
- Recommending the next show for you to “binge watch” on Netflix.
What do these seemingly unrelated things have to do with each other? Each of these tasks relies on analytics techniques and tools. These examples focus on the transformation of data into information, and then into insights and better business decisions.

In 2017, on the first Saturday of June, over 150,000 people sat for CFA exams across the globe.
For the last 14 years, Cameron’s PMBA program has challenged MBA student teams with a “real-world” consulting project known as the Learning Alliance (LA). The LA project pairs regional businesses with teams of PMBA students that provide comprehensive analysis of the companies’ business processes and competitive environments, as well as strategic recommendations for growth and/or profit improvement. The SBTDC is instrumental in selecting LA clients and helping to manage the relationships between the clients and the student teams.

Benjamin Franklin once said, “In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.”
Even in our ever-changing political and financial climate, we expect to see continuing growth in the demand for accounting graduates, particularly those who are able to earn licensure as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). The United States Bureau of Labor reports that accountants are enjoying the fastest job growth over all other occupations, and that growth is expected to continue through 2024.
