    Welcome to UWA’s College of Business! We are proud to have recently received the prestigious Alabama Quality Award for Commitment to Excellence in Education (Level 1). You will find that our student-oriented faculty are dedicated to providing quality education in specialized fields of business for a diverse student population. We also place great emphasis on preparing graduates for leadership roles in the local, national, and global community.

    We are nationally accredited by the Accreditation Council of Business Schools and Programs to offer the following degrees: Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting, Business Administration, Computer Information Systems, Management, and Marketing, and the Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Technology. We also offer the BBA degree in Accounting, Business Administration, and Management, as well as the BS degree in Technology, completely online.

    Our strengths lie in our low student to faculty ratio (18 to 1), our caring faculty and staff who provide individual attention to help you succeed, a timely and relevant curriculum, “hands-on” learning opportunities which enhance career prospects and job placement (e.g., internships, job shadowing programs, service learning activities, and consulting projects), technologically advanced classrooms, and a wide range of student organizations and honor societies you can join and lead.

    We are also actively engaged with business & industry, governmental units, and public institutions through various outreach activities aimed at positively impacting economic and community development, as well as quality of life. Please check out links to our Center for Business & Economic Services and Suttles Entrepreneurship Institute.

    Our goal is to prepare you for a successful and meaningful career, while simultaneously helping you grow and develop as a person. We strongly believe that you can succeed academically and thoroughly enjoy your total college experience as well. That is, we will help ensure that you “make your grades” and have some fun too. After all, as our slogan says, “There’s something about this place.” Come join our family!
