Leaders in the Memphis business community have been telling us that while our students
graduate with a solid set of academic skills, they would benefit from more interpersonal
and communications skills that are necessary for achieving sweeping success in the
business world. In response, we have identified “the four C’s”: Confidence, Communication Skills (both spoken and written,) Creativity, and Emotional Control.
The faculty of the Fogelman College of Business and Economics recognizes that students
learn through a wide variety of approaches and that the new global economy requires
additional higher levels of critical thinking, communication, and information synthesis
and analysis. FCBE faculty members utilize numerous approaches, techniques, and tools
in order to facilitate learning and to help students prepare to be effective employees
in a knowledge economy.
MILE Program prepares Fogelman College of Business & Economics students to be future
leaders in the city of Memphis through leadership development programs and mentoring.
