Invest in Texas A&M-Corpus Christi
Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi's College of Business brings together faculty with real world experience to engage students in order to prepare successful professionals for a changing global enterprise. Our undergraduate and master’s business and accounting programs, accredited by AACSB International (The
Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business), include seven undergraduate majors, 10 minors, and two graduate programs (MBA and Master of Accountancy).
Home to the oldest professional management association in the world, the Society for Advancement of Management, the College blends contemporary engagement with professional societies and academic journals to bring a new understanding to issues within organizations and corporations. The College of Business is housed in the new Michael and Karen O’Connor Building on campus.
Our experienced and internationally-diverse faculty brings cutting-edge research to the classroom, while students gain experience outside class to make their time here challenging and rewarding. Nine business-related student organizations provide opportunities for networking and sharpening skills for success. Student service learning projects include an annual free tax preparation service for the community.
Generous donations to the College of Business allow for enhancement of educational opportunities in student technology laboratories and other educational experiences that increase the margin of excellence in Islander business programs. Gifts for scholarships make it possible for students to pursue educational opportunities such as internships, workshops, and other field experiences. Additional funds provide support for college operations such as faculty development, specialized software programs, distinguished guest speakers, and award programs such as the Kirkland Distinguished Visitor and specialized student awards.
