The College of Business

A Message from the Dean and Dean's Office Information

I welcome you to Auburn University at Montgomery’s College of Business (COB) – whether your visit is virtual or face-to-face. At COB, you can find AACSB-accredited degrees at the undergraduate level (the BSBA degree) with majors in Accounting, Finance, General Business, Human Resources Management, Management, and Marketing. We also have accredited graduate degrees in Accounting (MAcc), Business (MBA) Healthcare Administration (MHA), and Information Systems (MSMIS). Those working full-time jobs can pursue the BSBA (General Business), MBA, MHA, or MSMIS degrees fully online.

Perhaps the most exciting changes within COB since January 2023 are related to the acquisition of a computer that has allowed our faculty and students to move quickly into the world of Artificial Intelligence (AI) management in ways that we have not found replicated in any other college of business. We expect to integrate AI-related education into all our degrees in short order.

What's your favorite thing about AUM students?

Come visit us and see how our following COB’s 2021-2025 COB Strategic Plan to be “student-centric” has resulted in improved facilities (an expanded COB Clothing Closet and more-welcoming Clement Cove) aimed at preparing students to be career-ready. Our undergraduate classes are deliberately kept small enough so that your professors will know your name, can help with academic accountability, and guide you toward your professional life. Finally, our AI emergence has already led to multiple student research projects and presentations at the University level and a regional academic conference.

I hope you will take the time to learn more about COB programs via our website, give me a call (334 244-3459) or send me an email ([email protected]). We want you to be a part of the COB and Warhawk family!
