The Donald L. Harrison College of Business at Southeast Missouri State University provides contemporary business studies designed to meet the educational and professional needs in southeast Missouri, while attracting students nationally and internationally. The faculty is committed to providing business studies today that will support tomorrow's business successes; that is, to promoting a curriculum that extends into the future while taking advantage of established concepts and best business practices today.
Undergraduate students further develop the skills and attributes demanded by the business community by completing the nationally recognized University Studies program. Graduate students are provided the opportunity to further develop their knowledge base, management-related skills, and personal attributes so they may advance professionally and provide executive leadership to their organization. As part of the teaching and learning process, the college applies the faculty's expertise and the enthusiasm of its students, in conjunction with the work of its service units, to improving the business and economic climate of Southeast Missouri.
The Harrison College of Business is ambitious. While maintaining highly regarded graduate programming, we are establishing the best undergraduate business program in the state of Missouri, thus becoming the campus of choice among undergraduate students wishing to pursue business studies at a medium-sized university that focuses on student learning and student success. The "best" encompasses multiple dimensions including a top-flight faculty, state-of-the-art facilities, superior support services, highly professional staff, a relevant curriculum that connects theory with practice, and a personal environment that passionately engages students.
