Dean's Message

Welcome to the Fogelman College of Business and Economics!

The Fogelman College of Business and Economics (FCBE) is home to nearly 3000 undergraduate and graduate students preparing to lead the business world by completing one of our numerous academic programs offered in both traditional classroom settings and an online format. We provide an affordable, quality education in Memphis and around the world. The FCBE is fully accredited at all levels by the AACSB, an honor earned by less than 5% of business schools worldwide. Our accounting program is separately accredited, a distinction held by just 2% of all business schools. We offer degrees at the undergraduate, master's and doctoral levels.

The Fogelman College of Business and Economics prepares students with the knowledge and skills to flourish in their chosen career field. Our award-winning faculty provides a strong educational foundation and hands-on experiences in our state-of-the-art facilities such as the Cook Analytics & Trading Lab equipped with Bloomberg terminals, the Business Information & Technology Lab that allows students to better absorb all dimensions of data analytics, and the Customer-Neuro Insights Research Lab which allows for research opportunities in neuromarketing.

We exist to help students complete their education and launch their careers. We are committed to student success, and we go beyond the classroom to help our students succeed in their chosen fields. We are proud to differentiate ourselves by providing a unique Complete Professional Program that holistically prepares students with the tools to achieve both personal and professional excellence. Through the Avron B. Fogelman Professional Development Center, we provide training on ethics, healthy living habits, business etiquette, resume building, professionalism, philanthropic activities, and more.

One factor that makes the FCBE, our students, and the Complete Professional Program so successful is the city of Memphis with its breadth of top employers and executives that are invested in our college. Memphis is home to many of America's greatest companies, and the Fogelman College takes maximum advantage to provide opportunities to interact with the business community through real-world, relevant, and important projects and internships.

When the wealth of real-world experience available to Fogelman College students is combined with a philosophy geared to make students more marketable to employers, the result is exceptional graduates who can compete with the best in the world and who are prepared for professionally and financially rewarding positions when they enter the workforce.

I invite all of you who are interested in expanding your knowledge and enriching your careers to explore the FCBE either online or through a visit to campus. You can explore our site to learn more about our academic programs, faculty research, admissions, or how you can support the college and our students!
