VISION FOR THE OFFICE OF ACADEMIC AFFAIRS AND COM North Carolina State University College of Management was created because a need existed. From its’ humble beginnings the college was not your typical B-School. With three Departments and the smallest administration on campus we have grown from 2,157 in 1992 with 113 entering freshmen to 2,666 in 2005 and a freshmen class of 384 for fall,2006. COM was founded outside the box and to grow and strive we must continue on this path. COM will face many challenges in the future, but challenges are just opportunities waiting to happen.
