Dear Prospective MBA Student(s),
Welcome to the AACSB, NIBS (Network of International Business Schools) and
COSMA (Commission on Sport Management Accreditation) Accredited Harrison College of Business at Southeast Missouri State University.

We are highly committed to being an educational institution of excellence in the field of business administration. On a continuous basis, we strive to provide our most valued assets, our students, with business studies for tomorrow's business successes - a mission that at all times forces us to understand the needs of our students and the competitive business environment. Our growing number of MBA electives is one of our most significant indications of fulfilling this mission.

The Masters of Business Administration program was initiated back in 1996 in response to regional needs in the Southeast Missouri area. Since then, the program has experienced major increase and improvement in:

  1. Number of part- and full-time students
  2. Quality of the program
  3. Internationalization of the program
  4. Integration of MBA students into academia through graduate assistantships
  5. Integration of technology throughout the curriculum

We believe that our AACSB Accredited MBA program sets apart from other programs by offering our students quick response in all correspondence, by paying special attention to their personal needs, and by giving all students the chance of being actively involved through our small class sizes.

The MBA program in the Harrison College of Business is very fortunate to have a great combination of international students and domestic students, many which are employed in regional full-time job-positions, allowing both parties to gain superior experiences within their fields of expertise.

Please spend some time browsing our web sites. They will provide detailed information about our students' experiences, application procedures, frequently asked questions and the MBA program. Also, we have designed special sites for prospective international students that will be particularly helpful upon arrival on campus.

Thanks for showing your interest in our MBA program. We will be proud in the near future to welcome you as a MBA student in the Harrison College of Business and with providing you an advanced business degree that will help you accomplish your professional goals.
