Manderson Graduate School of Business

Manderson students have access to one of the most advanced and extensive ranges of curriculum and experience available, owing both to state-of-the-art facilities and rigorous, world-class faculty. An enormous variety of interdisciplinary activities and research opportunities can enrich this experience by giving students the best that academia has to offer.

The Manderson Graduate School of Business is the graduate division of the Culverhouse College of Business. The mission of the College is to foster an inclusive community, committed to personal engagement and dedicated to shaping the future of business through excellence in teaching, research, and service. Manderson offers several Master's and Ph.D. degree programs. Master's degrees may serve as terminal professional degrees; that is, they are designed primarily for people who plan for professional careers in business, government, or nonprofit organizations. They may also function as preparatory programs for the pursuit of doctoral level education. The Ph.D. programs prepare graduates for careers as university level professors or as professional researchers. The Ph.D. requires an extensive, in-depth investigation of a subject area in their major field of study, culminating in the completion of a doctoral dissertation.

The Manderson Graduate School of Business features MBA and EMBA degree programs, along with ten (10) Specialized Master's and seven (7) Ph.D. degree programs (see navigation below). All programs are accredited by AACSB International—The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
