Earn Your Degree in Management
The Management program here at Southern Miss prepares students for leadership success in many career fields in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors. Students develop managerial skills in goal selection and planning, assigning tasks, delegating authority, allocating resources, motivating employees, and monitoring outcomes.
Students are encouraged to consider studying abroad! In fact, many business students are awarded study abroad scholarships to assist with the expense of attending study abroad programs. Southern Miss Business faculty lead three programs: British Studies, Asian Studies, and Italian Studies.
The College of Business and Economic Development is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).
