Message from the Dean
Welcome to the University of Missouri-St. Louis and the College of Business Administration. Having earned my BS and MBA from UMSL, I can testify to the quality of the faculty and programs, and how they prepared me for a long, successful, satisfying business career. As further validation, the college is accredited by the world's premier business school accrediting organization, the AACSB (The Association to Advance College Schools of Business). This distinction is earned by a very small percentage of business schools worldwide, and we are the only business school in St. Louis to have both our business school and our accounting programs accredited.
If you are an undergraduate student considering UMSL, I encourage you to explore the website to check out our undergraduate program offerings in management, marketing, accounting, finance, information systems, logistics & operations management, and international business. Our International Business program, which has been ranked in the top 20 in the U.S. for the past 11 years by U.S. News and World Report, has created new partnerships with universities in Germany and Finland as well as expanded international internship opportunities for our students. Lastly, the College now offers several degree and non-degree certificates in the fast growing fields of digital marketing and business intelligence.
Are you interested in graduate school? Our Flex (formerly Evening) MBA program is delivered by an outstanding faculty possessing a powerful combination of formal academic training coupled with relevant business experience. Our exciting cohort-based “PMBA 2.0"TM has received numerous accolades and offers a unique “blended” format which means that your time will be utilized efficiently.
At UMSL, we are well-known for producing hard working, well-prepared graduates. We have over 27,000 graduates of the college of business administration since our inception and they are making a difference in their companies and communities. As the global marketplace evolves, we will continue to ensure that our students are well grounded in the impacts of the latest technologies and in the leadership attributes needed to ensure success.
Whether you are looking for a place to start your business education, want to further advance your career through the pursuit of a graduate degree, or are interested in other learning opportunities, please explore all that UMSL Business has to offer.
We look forward to working with you.
