History

The University of Missouri-St. Louis College of Business Administration was established in 1967 and earned accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) six years later, the shortest time on record for any school. Nearly 50 years since the inception of our College, UMSL Business is proud to remain accredited in both business and accounting by AACSB, the only internationally recognized accrediting agency for business and accounting programs.

Vision

The College of Business Administration at UMSL provides research- and practice-based programs that prepare students to enter and succeed locally and globally across a wide range of business professions.   We offer quality, value, and access.

Mission

  • Prepare undergraduate and graduate business students for professional success in technically sophisticated local and global organizations.
  • Incorporate best-business-practice and current academic theory into all of our educational programs (certificates and degrees).
  • Explore, develop, and adopt new and better teaching methods.
  • Perform basic and applied research that advances knowledge and supports the understanding and efficiency of business activities, addresses needs of our business community, and promotes learning of our students. 
  • Fully engage with the St. Louis business community in order to meet their workforce needs, support the professional development of their employees, exploit the talent and experience of their managers, and develop mutually beneficial partnerships that serve our college’s instructional and research goals (guest speaker, internships, scholarships, sponsored research, and endowed chairs).
  • Help our university fulfill its strategic plan by increasing retention, reducing time to graduation, increasing the number of graduates, garnering more financial and non-financial aid of our alumni, expanding online offerings, and pursuing more interdisciplinary collaborations.
