The College of Business

In approaching its 75th year of existence, the College of
Business (COB) has evolved into one of the largest
programs on the Baton Rouge campus, having graduated
more than 8,000 students since its inception in 1937. The
college has been granted accreditation by the Association
to Advance Collegiate School of Business International
(AACSB-International), has more than 1,200
undergraduate, 120 MBA students, and graduates
approximately 200 students per year from four academic
units-the School of Accountancy, the Department of
Economics and Finance, the Department of Management
and Marketing and the MBA program. The organizational
structure of the College is comprised of the dean, the chief
administrative officer, the associate dean and MBA director,
the director of the School of Accountancy, and chairpersons
for each of the other departments.

The College of Business at Southern University provides a
quality professional education that enables students to be
productive citizens and future business leaders. We have
traditionally focused on teaching; however, the scope of
professional service activities has expanded to include: The
Louisiana Small Business Development Center, that is an
outreach program administered by the Louisiana Small
Business Development Program funded by the Small
Business Administration and Louisiana Department of
Economic Development. We have had grants from many
federal agencies including the Department of Education,
State Department, Department of Transportation,
Department of Interior and others. The College is active in
maintaining and encouraging faculty to publish intellectual
contributions in academic and professional journals.

The College benefits from the support of an Advisory
Council, and MBA National Board of Advisors composed of
representatives from corporations, banks, small business
entrepreneurs and government agencies in the local area
and throughout the United States. The Council provides
valuable resources for program, student, and faculty
development by participating in strategic planning and other
college activities including the annual Black Executive
Exchange Program, Career Planning and Awareness
Conference, and the Annual Awards Banquet. The  
Advisory Council and MBA National Board of Advisors also
serve as guest lecturers and participate in student
development activities during the year.

A high quality teaching and research program has been
maintained by the college, which is evidenced by the
accomplishments of its faculty. More than 70 percent of the
faculty have terminal degrees and many have published
articles in academic and professional journals. Reports from
graduate and professional schools and the private
marketplace indicate that our graduates are performing
well. Many of our graduates have been featured in national
business magazines, such as Black Enterprise.
