Murray State University, The Arthur J. Bauernfeind College of Business

The Arthur J. Bauernfeind College of Business' mission is to prepare students for careers in the dynamic environments of business, information technology, public and private organizations, and mass communications. With a domestic student population drawn primarily from Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana, Missouri, and Illinois, and a substantial international student population, the College of Business strives for excellence by engaging students in the acquisition of fundamental knowledge; mastery of professional skills (including oral and written communication, problem solving, and critical thinking); and the application of knowledge and skills to emerging issues, technologies, and professional practices in a student-centered learning environment. The college provides students with quality undergraduate and master's degree programs embodied in relevant curricula and innovative learning environments and encourages students in intellectual and social development by providing a high degree of student and faculty interaction both inside and outside the classroom. Our programs cultivate leadership in students and develop in them an appreciation for ethical issues and diversity in the global market place. Students of the college gain global perspectives in the classroom as well as opportunities to pursue international travel and learning. The college developes and encourages collaborative relationships with alumni, business and industry, public schools, government agencies and nonprofit organizations, as well as colleges and universities at home and abroad.
