The mission of the College of Business at The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga is to provide quality educational programs that produce academically-prepared and business-world ready men and women for a competitive global environment
The College provides quality AACSB-accredited educational programs that prepare full time and part time students (primarily from Tennessee and surrounding states) for managerial, professional, or entrepreneurial opportunities. The College offers undergraduate degree programs in a variety of business disciplines as well as Master of Accountancy, Master of Business Administration and Executive Master of Business Administration programs at the graduate level.
As a College within a state-supported metropolitan University with financial support from the business community, we recognize our responsibility to:
- Provide students with knowledge, business skills, and professional education.
- Engage in research leading to intellectual contributions that serve the needs and interests of business and management, and support learning and pedagogical research to enhance the education process.
- Provide service to the University, academic profession and Chattanooga community.
The College is committed to the principles of diversity so that varied and diverse viewpoints are appreciated and valued.
The undergraduate and graduate programs at UTC’s College of Business, in both business and accounting, are accredited by AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Less than 10 percent of the world’s business schools have achieved business and/or accounting accreditation from AACSB. This distinction is an achievement requiring a tremendous amount of effort.
AACSB International accreditation continuously challenges business schools to perform at the highest level; it informs the world that a business school manages resources to achieve a vibrant and relevant mission; and it speaks of faculty scholarship, high-caliber teaching of quality and current curricula, and meaningful interaction between students and faculty.
In short, AACSB International accreditation is the world’s most widely-recognized and most sought-after endorsement. It tells prospective students, faculty, and employers that an AACSB International accredited school produces graduates who are prepared to succeed in the business world. Beta Gamma Sigma is the honor society for AACSB accredited business programs.
AACSB International accreditation is earned excellence of the highest caliber. UTC’s College of Business is proud to be among those schools accredited by AACSB.
