Austin Peay's Business programs will push you beyond the textbook and prepare you to compete in a global economy.
The College of Business offers programs in four primary disciplines at the undergraduate level, that prepare students for careers in business. Students can earn a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting, Finance, Marketing, or Management.
The Master of Science in Management program is offered completely online through the Fort Campbell campus. The program is designed for students with a bachelor’s degree in any field and offers fast-track terms that last just 8-weeks. Convenient online courses enable students to balance graduate studies with work and personal commitments, with an option to graduate in 12 or 24 months.
Department of Accounting, Finance and Economics
The Department of Accounting, Finance and Economics offers two out of five of the
most in-demand degrees according to the National Association of Colleges and Employers.
Accounting provides the information necessary for evaluating the present and planned
activities of complex organizations. Finance can be defined as the art and science
of managing money. The field of finance is integral to almost every facet of business
Department of Management and Marketing
The Department of Management and Marketing offers two out of five of the most in-demand degrees according to the National Association of Colleges and Employers. The objective of the Management major is to expose business students to the challenges and varied opportunities of a managerial career. Marketing is more than just selling products. It involves identifying new needs in the Company's target markets, and helping design new products to meet these needs.
I love the College of Business and all of the faculty and staff for encouraging and supporting my dreams and goals. I also appreciate the diligence of our advisors in finding opportunities for students to expand our practical knowledge.
The work ethic I developed at Austin Peay allowed me to compete with (my law school classmates). I feel like Austin Peay prepared me to go to the next level, and without the huge burden of debt some of my classmates had.
I wanted to go to a bigger school, but I’m glad I go here because it’s smaller, I’m with my friends, and the classes have 20 people, so I’m able to connect with my professor.
