Southern Arkansas University, College of Business

At the Rankin College of Business, programs available in accounting, information systems, finance, entrepreneurship, general business, management, marketing, and supply chain management allow students to choose a major that suits their talents and ambitions. Our faculty serve as mentors and advisors, providing students with someone that will guide them through their program and into their career. Our ENACTUS team, PBL Chapter, Business Student Advisory Council, Business Student Investment Advisory Council, Emerging Entrepreneurs club, and Beta Gamma Sigma National Honor Society offer students many opportunities to build relationships with peers and develop their leadership skills. The Master of Business Administration is ranked nationally as one of the most affordable and can be completed all online or in a combination of seated and online classes.

The Rankin College of Business provides academic enrichment programs that provide students opportunities to network with business and industry leaders while learning about professional development and career options. Students are encouraged to obtain internships, and faculty are here to guide them through the process. Support is provided through programs like the Career Closet, which helps with professional attire, and the fall Career Week where workshops prepare students for internships and career employment. The annual spring Executive Network Conference brings back successful executive-level alums to share their stories and inspire students.


The Arkansas Small Business and Technology Development Center is hosted on our campus and helps individuals and small businesses in the community and provides opportunities for our students to collaborate on business projects with real-world companies.
