From the Dean

Welcome to the School of Business at Henderson State University. Please take a few moments and take a look at our website to understand who we are and what we can do for you. It is our vision to be recognized as the school of choice leading the educational, entrepreneurial and economic development in southwestern Arkansas and the surrounding region. Our ultimate goal is to develop and transform students to lead impactful careers and lives that benefit society, their organization, and themselves. I want to transform you into an economic development engine!

In order to achieve this vision, we provide two undergraduate and one graduate level degrees: a BBA in Accounting; a general BBA with an emphasis in one of the following:

  • Entrepreneurship
  • Finance
  • Marketing
  • Management
  • Management Information Systems

and a general MBA. In delivering these degrees we strive to ensure that our students are receiving a quality education. Nearly, 65 percent of our faculty holds terminal degrees and do high-quality research in their respective fields. Thirty-three percent of our faculty are instructional practitioners, who remain engaged in the practice of business through consulting and executive education. Our faculty are committed teachers and are obsessed about the quality of instruction in the classroom. They assess how well students are comprehending and retaining the material, making adaptations when necessary.

Interaction and engagement with students, faculty, administrators and practitioners fit in line with our slogan, Business Beyond The Classroom. To accomplish this, we provide real world experiences through our internship program, our business mentorship program, and through the Small Business and Technology Development Center. We bring exciting speakers to campus to engage and interact with students in small group sessions. Our alumni engage our students and share lessons learned from the trenches through Business Alumni Day, the Etiquette Dinner and the Business Plan Competitions that we host.

In all, I know that the School of Business at Henderson will provide you with an exceptional experience that is usually found only in private elite schools. We hold accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). It is normally understood that AACSB accreditation is one of the world’s most selective and rigorous types of evaluation for business schools. We voluntarily hold ourselves to these standards to ensure that you have an exceptional and undeniable high-quality business school experience.

I hope to see you in Mooney Hall one day and more importantly, I hope that I can offer you a handshake of congratulations as you walk across the stage to receive your degree from the School of Business at Henderson State University.

With Highest Regards,
Marc D. Miller, Ph.D.
