The College of Business

In approaching its 82th 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 9,000 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 600 undergraduate
and 120 MBA students, and graduates approximately 120
students per year from three academic units-the
Department of Accounting, Finance, and Economics, 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, 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
University Center for Economic and Entrepreneurial
Development funded with a grant from the U.S. Department
of Commerce, Economic Development Administration in
addition, many federal agencies including the U.S.
Department of Education, State Department, Department of
Transportation, Department of Interior and others have
funded our projects in the past. 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 Career Planning and
Awareness Program during Homecoming 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. Additional information on the College is provided
