There are many ways to prepare for a successful business career, and we draw from all of them as we educate the next generation of entrepreneurs and business leaders.
Our nationally recognized and respected programs benefit from quality teaching as well as immersive learning experiences—including internships and other opportunities to interact with and solve the problems of real-world businesses. We provide students with top-notch facilities, support numerous student organizations that broaden the learning experience, and maintain advisory boards that offer curriculum input and student connections with the business community.
We are accredited by AACSB International–the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. AACSB is the premier professional accrediting body for schools of business. Only the top 15 percent of the world’s business schools earn AACSB accreditation, which requires strict adherence to rigorous standards of excellence.
The Miller Name
When successful businessman Wallace T. Miller Jr. died unexpectedly in 1998, his gift to Ball State University’s College of Business was the largest single private gift from an individual in the history of the university. Through his generosity, Wally Miller created a legacy for future generations of Ball State business students, and the college now bears his name.
The Miller College of Business will be a nationally recognized model for being student-centered, community-engaged, innovative, and entrepreneurial; known for its undergraduate and graduate programs through the accomplishments of its students, faculty, and alumni.
The mission of the Miller College is to provide innovative and high-quality academic programs that provide skills to transform students into life-long learners and impactful leaders.
The mission is fulfilled by:
- Providing a transformative experience through an experiential-based, relevant education
- Fostering a student-centered learning environment
- Discovering and disseminating knowledge through faculty scholarship that informs our disciplines, students, businesses and policy makers
- Developing and sustaining multifaceted relationships with employers, alumni, professionals, and the broader communities
