USM MBA Program Ranked by U.S. News and World Report


University of Southern Mississippi graduate
Ashley Stauter took a regional approach to considering where she’d go to grad school
to receive her master’s in business administration. After much soul searching, Stauter landed
back on familiar soil. I’m from south Mississippi. I love it. It is a great campus. It has great
people. It has so much to offer and that is what brought me back to Southern Mississippi.
The MBA program is also catching the attention of U.S. New and World Report, which has included
the part-time program in the 2014 top 200 list. That is a huge honor for us that has
been hard earned by the work of many people. Although the program attracts people from
all over the world and nationwide, College of Business dean Dr. Faye Gilbert said students
from the Gulf South region have a particular appreciation for the unique features of the
Southern Miss MBA program. You don’t have to go far to be able to immerse yourself in
an international experience, to work with other professionals from throughout the region
that are engaged, employed, managing their operations, seeking the MBA to go further
faster. Along with the chance to work closely with dedicated faculty members, Dr. Gilbert
says the financial outlook of the Gulf South region is improving, which places the Southern
Miss MBA program at the center of many new economic development opportunities. As the
economy improves it is time to move forward with careers, with new industries coming into
our state and region and to be prepared for the future. The College of Business has implemented
a number of prerequisite changes to enrolling in the MBA program aimed at making the program
more attractive to people from diverse backgrounds. We’re attracting engineers, people across
all the stem categories, healthcare professionals, physicians, in addition to people who have
earned their undergraduate degrees in business. MBA classes are offered both in Hattiesburg
and on the Gulf Park campus. From The University of Southern Mississippi, I’m Layla Essery.
