The Mississippi College School of Business Mission is to provide a quality business education in a Christian environment.

We serve undergraduate and graduate students from the region providing a setting where Christian values are emphasized through ethical awareness, biblical principles and a supportive faculty. 

In this environment, the school seeks to prepare students with a sound understanding of essential business principles, effective communication skills, and an appreciation for social responsibility and ethical values. 

The school is committed to academic quality through effective teaching, relevant programs, and faculty scholarship through contributions to practice, learning and pedagogy, and discipline-based research.


Mississippi College, through its School of Business, is nationally accredited by the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs to offer the following business degrees:

The Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (B.S.B.A.).

The Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.).

Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.)

The M.B.A. has been designed especially for one who is working and wishes to continue their education at night. The M.B.A. with a general concentration is designed primarily for working professionals who want to further their careers and seek greater decision-making responsibilities. The general MBA program includes a broad-based, rigorous curriculum that develops competency in general management skills and key functional areas of business, including accounting, finance, marketing, organizational behavior, economics, and statistics.

Advisor: Dr. Kevin Pauli, 601.925.7734

An M.B.A. with an Accounting Concentration is offered for students planning to take the C.P.A. Exam. Due to the more specialized nature of this program, additional prerequisites are required. The M.B.A. with an Accounting Concentration provides the educational background needed for the student who plans to become a Certified Public Accountant or attain their professional certifications, or who needs a higher level of accounting proficiency in order to accomplish his or her career goals. The coursework includes studies in financial accounting, managerial accounting, taxation, and auditing.

Advisor: Dr. Billy Morehead, 601.925.7742

An M.B.A. with a Finance Concentration is offered for students planning to work in the finance area. The M.B.A. with a Finance Concentration provides students with an advanced knowledge and understanding of finance and develops competency in financial management, investments, and financial institutions and markets. These three areas are of key importance for building a successful career in the financial industry or assisting corporations, businesses and organizations in their financial management.

Advisor: Dr. Mike Cudd, 601.925.3974

A joint M.B.A./J.D. is offered as an option for Law School Students. It has been designed especially for a person who wishes to complete both degrees while attending law school.
