Welcome to the UAB School of Business!
Located in the heart of Alabama's business center, the UAB School of Business offers a state of the art environment for learning with classrooms extending well beyond the walls of the UAB campus. Our unique location allows our faculty to integrate the practical experiences of the State's leading companies - from Fortune 500 corporations to entrepreneurial startups - into every program we offer.
The UAB School of Business draws students from a variety of educational backgrounds with diverse life experiences, but as a group, they share a common drive. They are unafraid of sacrifice; they are willing to earn their success. Our students understand the practical application of education to their careers, and so they demand more of themselves, their professors, and their fellow students.
Our faculty's teaching skills complement our students' uncompromising efforts. But our faculty members are more than just skilled teacher scholars. They are also deeply experienced professionals, having worked for some of the world's leading companies: Ford, Deloitte, United Airlines, Motorola, Proctor & Gamble and U.S. Steel to name a few. They are accomplished researchers, publishing papers and textbooks that contribute to the ever-growing body of knowledge within each discipline. It's this combination of direct experience and applied research that makes a degree in business from UAB both practical and relevant.
Our programs are dynamic, evolving to meet the ever changing needs of the market. Our students and faculty each bring a unique cultural, educational, and professional background to the classroom, enriching the experience for everyone.
Thank you for this opportunity to introduce the UAB School of Business. Please explore our site and contact us anytime with questions or comments.
