The School of Business invite you to join us on our journey to fulfill our vision to be known as "the best value in the Southeast" through our quality programs, students and faculty.


The 2014 -15 academic year has been challenging for both the University and the School of Business. In spite of our challenges, however, we have had several accomplishments. We are committed to maintaining quality instruction, an exceptional learning environment, an innovative and relevant curriculum, which includes a leadership and professional development program, a diverse and quality faculty, and an array of activities for students to engage in leadership and entrepreneurial experiences.


On March 31st the School of Business Programs were reaccredited for another five years by AACSB - International, which is the highest level of recognition that any business school can attain. This stamp of approval from the premier accrediting body demonstrates the high quality of faculty, programs, and students in the Business Program at SC State University.


South Carolina State University’s School of Business was initially accredited in 2001 and is one of 11 schools in South Carolina and the only Historically Black University in the state to attain this prestigious accreditation. Programs accredited include five undergraduate program in accounting, agribusiness, business economics, management and marketing and an MBA program with tracks in a general MBA, entrepreneurship and agribusiness.


In addition to maintaining accreditation, our stellar Executive Speaker Series featured basketball legend and business mogul, Earvin “Magic” Johnson during our 43rd Annual Business Week program. An Executive-In-Residence program was also launched this academic year. We will continue to forge ahead with new curricula, programs and activities to enhance student learning, develop leadership skills and create innovative thinkers.


COME JOIN US on our journey to fulfill our vision to be known as a premier business program in the Southeast that provides an environment for students to enhance their potential to become future business leaders.
