Welcome to the College of Management (COM) website. As you review the materials on these web pages, you will get a sense of a very dynamic and exciting learning environment that we have created. We are a college that offers eleven Bachelor of Science degrees, four Bachelor of Applied Science degrees, two master's programs, many graduate certificates and the applied Doctor of Business Administration. Students enjoy the benefits of attending a large university without losing the personal touch of a small college. Although we serve over 5,000 students a year, we have kept the class size small: an average of 30 students per section. As a result, students benefit from a highly interactive and personal learning environment that few other colleges can match.

Our faculty members are not only academically qualified and student-centered; most of them also have years of business and managerial experience in global companies or non-profit organizations. This combination enables them to better help our students take the theory and apply it to practical situations in the "real world." Our senior students have consistently outperformed the vast majority of their peers in other business schools with the ETS major field tests in areas like accounting, finance, and economics. Most graduates of COM are quickly hired by the top businesses, governmental units and non-profit organizations. The national recognition received by our quality programs has led to a nearly $5 million grant to develop a Center of Excellence in Information Security and Technology.

At the College of Management, we value diversity, flexibility and applicable knowledge.  Our undergraduate programs are offered at over 14 sites throughout the metropolitan area, usually on a one-night-a-week basis. Our day programs at the Midway campus offer a more traditional daytime meeting schedule. If these formats don't fit your busy lifestyle, we also have several online programs that offer undergraduate majors in Management, Marketing, Business Administration, Entrepreneurship and Innovation, Human Resource Management and our two master degree programs. There are also web-enhanced, reduced-seat-time courses and independent studies.

We invest in the success of our students. Our aim in the College of Management is to help you become better business practitioners and managers. A highly capable group of faculty members, academic advisors, and supporting staff are ready to assist you in achieving your goals. The names of contact people are identified throughout the Web pages.
