The BusinessMBA.org site praised the FCBE on its site, saying, “Students at the nationally ranked Fogelman College of Business and Economics at the University of Memphis benefit from the school’s relationships with a number of major corporations and a commitment to nurturing new start-up companies. The FBCE online MBA program counts students from across Tennessee and 20 other states.

“We are proud to be leading a significant national trend that is seeing business schools at state universities which are research-based and AACSB-accredited take back MBA market share from non-AACSB-accredited private players,” said Dr. Jasbir Dhaliwal, associate dean of the Fogelman College, “Prospective MBA students are seeking out quality programs like ours that are taught by research faculty who are at the cutting edge of their disciplines and who use sophisticated online learning tools and methods.”
