About the College
A Message From Our Dean
Welcome to the College of Business website!
The eighth largest public university in America, the University of South Florida is a global research university dedicated to student success. One of its largest colleges, the College of Business boasts one of the America's best accounting schools, a top ranked entrepreneurship center, a nationally ranked MBA program, world-class research faculty, and a comprehensive portfolio of business-education programs.
We do more than simply disseminate information: We create intellectual capital and produce graduates who are not only ready for today's workplace, but who are also trained to be forerunners in tomorrow's workforce. In short, we equip students with the skills and knowledge needed to take leadership positions in business and society.
Our 6,000 students are a mix of traditional, full-time students who live on campus and commuter students who work 40-hour weeks while furthering their education. We offer nine undergraduate degree options, 10 graduate degree programs, and a doctoral programs in business administration with specializations in accounting, finance, information systems and decision sciences, and marketing. All of our programs are accredited by AACSB - the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International, which is the hallmark of excellence in business education.
USF's location – in the midst of a vibrant, business-centric metropolitan market – provides rich opportunities to integrate real-world experiences into classroom learning as large and small companies offer internships and jobs, speakers, and service-learning projects. This means our students participate in internships, case competitions, and professional mentoring and networking opportunities impossible at many other business schools.
We are delighted that you are interested in learning more about us.
