Business Office

The Purdue Polytechnic Institute Business Office coordinates and supervises all business aspects of the college’s academic departments, schools, and administrative units.

We seek to partner with the college community to support learning, discovery, and engagement by delivering quality business and financial services, and efficiently and effectively providing stewardship of college and department resources.  Read more about the Treasurer's Office here.
