The University of Akron
College of Business Administration
Globalization Emerging world economies. New rules for succeeding in business in new places. The mission of the College of Business Administration is to prepare the next generation of business leaders for the changes ahead. Our graduates need to be prepared to face the challenges of the future and to be adaptable as that future changes. It is a mission we take very seriously.
The programs of the college are accredited by the AACSB and classes combine both time-tested techniques and innovative approaches to learning. Graduate students enjoy the advantage of small class sizes, where learning the fundamentals of business and innovative management is something that never goes out of style.
Classes blend theory with the best practice applications. In an investment class, for example, you will not only learn how to invest, you will have the opportunity to invest real money in the real market. In a negotiations class, you will use the world-class facilities of the Fisher Institute for Professional Selling to hone your skills. The Taylor Institute of Direct Marketing is recognized as the premier institute of its kind in the world and those facilities are at your disposal.
The attention we pay to our students has resulted in our being recognized by the Princeton Review as one of the best AACSB accredited schools of business worldwide. These Princeton Review quotes from current students and alums of our graduate programs attest to our strengths and our dedication to meeting the needs of our students by providing an excellent education and solid support service to help you succeed.
