The Kate Tiedemann College of Business (KTCOB) at the University of South Floriday St. Petersburg (USFSP) is dually accredited by AACSB in both business and accounting, a distinction held by less than 2% of institutions worldwide.
KTCOB is housed in a 68,000 sq. foot state-of-the art facility in St. Petersburg, Florida. Our location, nestled between a bustling metropolitan area and a sparkling waterfront. It informs access to and support from business executives and other community partners. Partners engage directly with students in the classroom to share relevant industry experience, and act as advisors, helping to ensure curriculum meets the needs of a rapidly changing workforce.
KTCOB's educational philosophy is grounded in the "KNOW, DO, BE" framework. Foundational knowledge (KNOW) is built in the classroom, which students then apply through experiential application (DO). Professional development efforts assist in empowering the individual (BE) through events, student organizations, study abroad programs, internships and community engagement.
Our tight-knit campus culture ensures that student success is at the heart of all we do. Professors know their students by name, and both faculty and staff actively guide, challenge, and encourage each individual.
