College of Business

A Message From Our Dean


dean david urbanWelcome to the Jennings A. Jones
College of Business!

The Jones College is well known—both
within and outside Tennessee—as a
business college on the move, perfectly positioned to build its reputation and its impact on the region, the state, and beyond. Our key strengths are our dedicated faculty and staff, our accreditation from AACSB International, and the sense of pride our Jones College alumni have about the education they received.

We have to be like any successful business in that we need to constantly ask ourselves, "How can we do better?" In addition to making sure our curriculum is up-to-date, we provide enrichment and development opportunities outside the classroom that will help our students be attractive to potential employers. We develop our faculty and staff so that they will feel the Jones College is where they want to spend their careers. We work with our colleagues in other MTSU colleges to leverage our strengths and develop innovative programs. We respond to the educational and service needs of the broader community.

Both internally and especially externally, we have a great story to tell about MTSU and the Jones College. The more we do that, the more people like you will want to help us in our mission. Great business colleges are engines of innovation, entrepreneurship, and economic development, with tremendous intellectual and physical resources. We are proactive in getting the word out about what we can do.
