Experience. It’s how you develop the skills and poise you need to succeed, no matter what career you’re pursuing. It’s what it takes to land a great job and then advance to an even better role. It’s not always easy to gain.
Miller College of Business emphasizes a blend of advanced and up-to-the-minute classroom instruction with the kind of learning for which Ball State University is known. Our professors know that solid classroom learning is critical but not complete. They've crafted a learning environment that's long on experience.
Ball State’s program in entrepreneurship, for example, features a capstone requirement that’s as stomach-churning as any real-world entrepreneurial experience—craft a business plan, present it to a panel of entrepreneurs, and only if they offer a stamp of approval are you allowed to graduate on time.
Business students in all disciplines interact regularly with business professionals who share not only their expertise but also their problems, giving you the chance to be part of a solution building strategy. We emphasize immersive learning and internships for the experience and connections they provide.
We offer a wide range of programs, from undergraduate majors and minors to graduate degrees and certificate programs. Majors are divided among six academic departments. We also operate several centers that attract and consolidate expertise and share information. You can participate in student organizations for camaraderie as well as insight into aspects of the business world.
And just like in the real world, we’re always evolving and creating more ways to assist in your success.
Our bachelor's degree in sales is the first of its kind in Indiana. Our minor in entrepreneurship can be seamlessly paired with majors in business, fashion merchandising, construction management, or any other degree. The business minors are available with specific tracks for business and non-business students. Our nationally ranked master of business administration (MBA) program now offers a sales concentration.
Your course work will be rigorous, but you will be in a supportive environment with living-learning communities for freshmen, info sessions for each major, advising services, and more.
We encourage alumni and business professionals to get involved, stay connected to Miller College, and support our top-notch programs.
Miller College of Business is accredited by AACSB International and was the first state-supported institution in Indiana to hold separate AACSB accreditation for the accounting program.
