Missouri State University, College of Business Administration

The College of Business (COB) is one of the largest business programs in the Midwest, enrolling more than 5,300 undergraduate and graduate students. A wide array of academic programs are available including 25 undergraduate, 6 graduate and 15 certificate programs that prepare students to enter the business world and advance in their careers. There are five departments in the college’s business unit: Finance and General Business; Information Technology and Cybersecurity; Management; Marketing; and the School of Accountancy, as well as two separately accredited departments: Merchandising and Fashion Design, and Technology and Construction Management. COB holds the prestigious full accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The School of Accountancy also holds supplemental AACSB accounting accreditation. A $35 million dollar renovation and expansion project was recently completed at David D. Glass Hall, home to the College of Business. The building now exceeds 200,000 square feet. New spaces focus on student success and include four experiential learning labs, team study spaces, interview rooms, two outdoor terraces, and enhanced classroom space. While COB faculty are actively engaged in research, classroom instruction and experiential learning for students is paramount. Fulltime faculty members or instructional practitioners within the local business community teach all COB courses. There are no graduate students teaching courses. Outside of the classroom, students are supported with study away experiences, regional and national competitions, student and professional organizations, free tutoring and a dedicated onsite advisement and career center.
