How Supply Chains are Being Impacted by Coronavirus
The coronavirus (COVID-19) has uncovered numerous flaws in supply chains, according to Mike Loughrin, an adjunct professor in the online Master of Business Administration program at the University of Northern Colorado and CEO of Transformance Advisors, a consulting and education company for businesses.
“I know many experts claim supply chains are nimble and responsive, always sensing customer demand and able to rapidly react to changing conditions,” Loughrin said. “Coronavirus has exposed the truth: long lead times, lack of flexibility, shortage of local suppliers and complexity, which makes our supply chains act like a house of cards.”
UNC Expert: Slowing Spread of Coronavirus Will Help Rebound Financial Markets
The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is creating a different set of challenges for financial markets, and making future events incalculable, according to Joe French, a professor of Finance at the University of Northern Colorado.
The possible recession’s severity and length depends on the progression and control of further infection rates around the world. The lack of experience in dealing with pandemics is exacerbating the ability to predict the market’s direction.
Coronavirus Panic Buying Follows Marketing Theories
Toilet paper, pasta and hand sanitizer seem to be as rare and valuable as gold nowadays
due to consumers hoarding these and other supplies due to fears of the coronavirus
But this isn’t out of the ordinary during such unexpected and stressful times, according to Daniel Brannon, Ph.D., an assistant professor in UNC’s Monfort College of Business and an expert in consumer behavior.
Students: How to Stay Sane and Grow Your Personal Brand on Social Media
As of mid-March 2020, it’s hard to log in to social media without seeing a gamut of COVID-19 posts. As the United States and other countries respond to the virus outbreak with recommendations for social distancing, and universities close their on-campus doors for the rest of the semester, how can students stay connected without getting drawn into the negative social media?
Professional Attire Closet Opens its Doors
Do you have an interview, class presentation, a networking opportunity, or any type of event you find yourself in need of professional attire coming up? UNC has a new Professional Attire Closet located in Kepner Hall. It is free to use and available to UNC students.

Preparing Our Students

Our undergraduate programs include Business Administration degrees in Accounting, Computer Information Systems, Finance, General Business, Management and Marketing, as well as a Software Engineering program, in collaboration with the College of Natural and Health Sciences.
At the graduate level, UNC offers a Master of Accounting (MAcc) which satisfies Colorado's and most other state's 150-hour requirement for licensing as a CPA. UNC's Master of Business Administration (MBA) is a flexible program that offers specialization in healthcare administration, human resources management or general business management.
