Student Populations to be Served
In addition to supporting the undergraduate program, the College of Business also supports a large Master's of Business Administration program. The primary graduate student population to be served by the College of Business includes entry level and mid-career professionals who are well prepared to expand their management expertise and to prepare for career advancement. Students are sought from a wide variety of backgrounds and undergraduate majors. While the primary service area is northwest Alabama, south-central Tennessee and northeast Mississippi, the College of Business seeks to diversify and enrich its graduate student body by also enrolling qualified international students from a variety of cultures in its on-campus program. Further, in support of the College of Business's Vision of providing high value programs that are accessible and affordable, the graduate program serves a substantial number of working, mid-career professionals via its graduate distance-learning (online) course offerings. To facilitate the integration of a global outlook in all College of Business programs, the College also provides graduate business education to Asian students in their home country which creates learning synergies for College of Business faculty and students.
