Turner College of Business

The mission of the D. Abbott Turner College of Business is to prepare our students to add value to their communities and employers in a globally competitive environment by providing high quality, relevant business and computer science education.  

The Turner College is located in the Center for Commerce and Technology on the main campus, and houses the Departments of Accounting and Finance; Management and Marketing; and, the TSYS School of Computer Science. 

The TSYS School has several nationally recognized programs and has been designated by the U.S. National Security Agency as a Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education. 

The College’s business programs are distinguished by their international accreditation by AACSB International – the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.  Fewer than a third of the nation’s business programs have earned this distinction – a distinction that validates the quality of both our faculty and programs, and signals that we have reached a level of excellence achieved by only the most select schools.  

Both our business and computer science programs have been nationally recognized as Best Values for their combination of excellence and affordability.  The introduction of our newest graduate program: the Master of Science in Organizational Leadership with tracks in Human Resource Management, Servant Leadership and Leader Development, has reinforced our reputation as a “military friendly” institution. In addition, our online MBA program has been recognized by U.S. News and World Report as one of the top 50 in the country for the past three years. The growing recognition of our business and computer science programs adds great value to the degrees of our graduates.
