Oh, what a feeling.

College of Business and Economics

Hunter Omlid, first-year student from Hamilton, Montana, says, “Boise has an array of business options to satisfy different people in and out of state. COBE has a vibe of getting things done quickly, but also getting them done the right way.”

The vIbe that tells you COBE is where you want to be

Student after student tell us they chose Boise State University College of Business and Economics “because of the vibe.”  Often within the first few minutes of a visit to the Boise State campus, students feel the vibe and say, “This is where I want to be!”
