We Mean Business.


Mississippi State University's College of Business is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year! Founded on October 15, 1915, the College of Business is the oldest college of business in the state and one of the oldest in the South.

As part of our Centennial Celebration, we have launched an exciting new branding campaign: WE MEAN BUSINESS. Our tagline is strong and bold, and exemplifies the mentality of our students, faculty and more than 33,000 College of Business alumni, from all 50 states and over 150 countries. 

Throughout 2015, we have incorporated six key words that also demonstrate specifically what “We Mean” in the College of Business: 

Leadership. We mean… students, alumni, friends, and faculty who are confident, strategic thinkers who are willing to lead and open to new challenges.

Discovery. We mean… leading-edge research for professors, graduate and undergraduate students.

Innovation. We mean… Fostering a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship for our students, offering real-world experience for ambitious students with a creative drive.

Opportunity. We mean… affording our students the ability to achieve success in the business world, through scholarships, outstanding faculty, state of the art learning resources, study abroad internships and career networking opportunities.

Integrity. We mean… stressing the importance of responsible decision-making in all circumstances, whether or not anyone is watching.

Community. We mean… embracing the values of service, compassion, and giving back to foster a better world.

Mississippi State's College of Business proudly celebrates this historic milestone as we continue to lead in excellence for the next 100 years. WE MEAN BUSINESS.
