Jennings A. Jones College of Business


Annual Report


t was a milestone year for Jennings A. Jones College of Business, as we have continued to march toward a higher level of national prominence and regional dominance.



Faculty and Staff 20 Friends






Our business and accounting accreditation was extended five more years. Only 183 institutions worldwide have AACSB accreditation—the hallmark of business education excellence—for business and accounting. Reviewers praised our commitment to MTSU’s Quest for Student Success and the quality of our advising staff­—key to significant gains in retention for freshmen and new transfer students. The year saw the launch of the Flex M.B.A., M.S. in Finance, and Business Intelligence and Analytics concentration in the M.S. in Information Systems program. The Dale Carnegie Course in Human Relations and Communication is now required for undergraduate majors and is transforming

students’ soft skills. The Real Estate program is gaining recognition regionally and nationally. We opened an upgraded M.S. in Information Systems computer lab, state-of-the-art Financial Analysis Center, and Executive Education Center. We accelerated marketing efforts with award-winning publications, advertising on Tennessee Titans broadcasts, strategically placed electronic billboards, and signage at Nashville International Airport. Studies by the Business and Economic Research Center and Office of Consumer Research received statewide and regional press coverage. Our progress is the result of a team effort by faculty, staff, students, and alumni, who play major roles in carrying on a tradition of educational excellence. It is my privilege to lead such a great college. Thank you for your ongoing support, and keep your eyes on Jones College in 2016–17!
