It is with great pleasure and pride that we report the highlights of activities, accomplishments, and experiential learning experiences of our faculty, staff, and students.
Our MBA enrollment has grown from 109 in fall 2008 to 313 in 2012. Our online MBA was ranked number eight by GetEducated.com, out of 85 AACSCB accredited institutions which were selected as the “Best Affordable Online MBA programs.” In 2010 the FSU MBA was ranked number nine among 69 AACSB accredited schools. To be ranked among the top 10 twice in three years is a great accomplishment. The credit goes to our excellent team of faculty who developed a plan that provides students, regardless of their location, the opportunity to obtain a Master of Business Administration degree through online learning without compromising our commitment to high quality education.
As part of our commitment to continuous improvement, five graduate faculty members from the College of Business volunteered to participate in a seminar organized by AACSB titled “Strategies for Developing Online Courses and Programs” in order to further develop their skills in teaching online classes. Upon completion of the seminar, the participating faculty will be asked to share their learning experiences with the rest of faculty in the College of Business.
Our faculty continues to be highly productive in the area of intellectual contribution via publication of their research papers in Peer Reviewed Journals and making presentations at national and international conferences. Further, the first issue of a new journal, co-sponsored by Frostburg State University and the International Academy of Business Disciplines, was published in August 2012, and is now officially listed in Cabell’s Directory of Publications. For more information please see www.ijir.net. .
The College of Business continues its commitment to provide our faculty members and students with opportunities for Global Experiential Learning. A new plan is under development by Dr. Jeff McClellan to engage a group of students in a service-related project in Peru. The project will be one of the requirements of students’ summer courses. Dr. Carol Gaumer plans to accompany and support Dr. McClellan and our students on this exciting trip.
As part of our strategies for increasing the enrollment of FSUBusiness undergraduate programs, we have visited and plan to continue visiting selected High Schools in the Baltimore-Washington areas to share information about the high quality education that we offer our students, and the caring and supportive learning environment that we have established at the FSU College of Business.
My special thanks to President Gibralter, Provost Simpson, the FSU community, FSU alumni, and Advisory Board members for their continued support, which gives us the opportunity to help our students to grow as more knowledgeable and responsible citizens of the world.
Please visit us on our College of Business web site and learn more about our programs, as well as, the achievements of our faculty, staff, and students.
