Our vision statement expresses aspirationally how we wish to be viewed both internally and externally. "The College of Business Administration at Missouri State University is one of the leading business schools in the Midwest."
The Missouri State University College of Business is committed to effectively developing educated persons in the business disciplines at the undergraduate and master’s level to prepare them for successful careers as managers and professionals. We will accomplish this mission by providing students with a broad understanding of public affairs, and with knowledge, skills and values to succeed and adapt in a global economy. Essential to achieving this mission is providing high quality undergraduate and graduate degree programs delivered through excellent teaching and student engagement, and producing quality intellectual contributions that advance knowledge of business and management theory, practice, and/or learning pedagogy. We also seek to build effective partnerships with global institutions, industry, the public, and our colleagues.
A Master of Business Administration degree is administered by the College of Business. Additional graduate programs are offered through the academic departments/school in the College. Refer to Graduate Catalog for more information.
