Adam Walker has been named director of development for the Fogelman College of Business & Economics at the University of Memphis.

Walker joined the University in January 2011. Prior to his new role with the Fogelman College, he served as the director of major gifts for the Athletic Department. Before coming to Memphis, he was the associate director for athletic development and major gifts at the University of Central Florida and was the development officer for the College of Engineering at Kansas State University.

“I am very honored and fortunate to be associated with such a tremendous college,” Walker said. “The Fogelman College of Business & Economics has extremely strong relationships with its students, alumni, and community. I am very excited to become a part of its success.”

Walker earned his bachelor’s degree in kinesiology and master’s in counseling and student development from Kansas State.

The Fogelman College of Business & Economics  teaches a rigorous, relevant, and wide-ranging business curriculum to almost 3,000 students at the undergraduate, master’s and doctoral levels.  Academic programs offered include the BBA program with nine undergraduate majors, the MBA, EMBA, IMBA, MSBA, MS, and MA programs at the master’s level, and the PhD program with concentrations in six academic areas.  Most of these are mature programs with a long history of success in producing knowledgeable and skilled business school graduates.  Because many of America’s greatest companies have headquarters or other offices in Memphis, students of the FCBE are able to interact with those businesses to gain invaluable real-world experience before graduation.

The College houses the Kemmons Wilson School of Hospitality and Resort Management, the Sparks Bureau of Business and Economic Research, the Robert Wang Center for International Business, and the FedEx Center for Supply Chain Management.

Of the College’s 100 full-time faculty, eleven hold Chairs of Excellence and one is a Distinguished Professor.  The Fogelman College holds both business and accounting accreditation from AACSB International, the premier business accrediting agency, and is the only AACSB-school in the Memphis metropolitan area.
