When you walk through the doors you sense it. There’s an energy. An enthusiasm. There’s excitement as students and faculty work together on projects that can make a difference.
You’ve entered the Charlton College of Business at UMass Dartmouth.
It is a place where undergraduates and graduate students mingle in the halls and exchange ideas. They participate in clubs and organizations where they meet new friends and learn to become leaders.
It is a place where the faculty integrate their academic expertise and professional experiences so that students learn the theory and the application. Lively discussions encourage students to question, to listen, and to find their own solutions.
This is a place of learning.

Earle P. Charlton's legacy of business success
Both Charlton College and the Learning Pavilion are enduring testaments to renowned businessman, Earle P. Charlton, the founder of a national chain of retail stores, Woolworth’s. Charlton was a visionary, and his legacy is well represented by the state-of-the-art Charlton Learning Pavilion. Here, faculty and students interact in thoughtfully designed spaces that encourage new styles of learning and a team approach to success.
Our alumni reflect the opportunities that await hard working Charlton graduates. Among them you’ll find senior vice presidents of multi-national corporations, accountants at big four accounting firms, entrepreneurs and administrators who have launched their careers from the rock-solid foundation of a Charlton education.
At Charlton, we understand that being successful in business is more than being good at accounting, marketing, or finance. It is the ability to communicate clearly. It is the ability to work with and build a team. It is the ability to question the how and why, and then come up with a creative new solution. We will help you develop and fine tune those skills.
