Deciding on where to obtain a graduate business education is difficult as there are many qualified schools to choose from. Often, colleges and universities alike offer the same base curriculum with concentrations in Marketing, Finance, Human Resources or Management. While all of the courses will prepare you for your business career, you may not be armed with the specific skills and knowledge base to get you in the door and ensure your success in the industry that you choose post-graduation. All industries are not alike. They require not only basic business acumen but also a highly sophisticated base of knowledge in their area of market in which they each exist. For instance, a business professional working in the medical device industry will require an understanding in reimbursement, purchasing, clinical selling, sterilization packaging, and FDA regulations just to name a few.

At the University of Memphis Fogelman College of Business & Economics, students can obtain this knowledge with specialized training tuition-free and a lucrative assistantship through the Customer-driven MBA.
