The Fogelman College of Business & Economics is an AACSB accredited institution comprising six departments – School of Accountancy; Business Information and Technology; Economics; Finance, Insurance, and Real Estate; Management; and Marketing and Supply Chain Management with academic programs at all levels including undergraduate, masters, and Ph.D. All of our degree programs provide a learning environment that fosters scholarship, intellectual curiosity, and collegiality with the goal of preparing students for meaningful and responsible participation in a broad range of career opportunities in business, government, and institutional settings, or for advanced professional or graduate education. We are dedicated to helping students acquire the competencies and attitudes for a lifetime of learning as they face the challenges of the future.
Through a thorough and transparent process of continual assessment and improvement, the Fogelman College strives to ensure that the learning outcomes for all of our degree programs meet or exceed the rigorous standards necessary to be AACSB accredited. The information shared through this website provides a complete picture of this ongoing self-assessment process including the learning goals for each degree, how we assess student achievement towards those goals, and specific steps we have taken to continually improve the overall professional development of our graduates across all disciplines.
