The Arthur J. Bauernfeind College of Business at Murray State University has several excellent programs for international students. Faculty and staff in this program are committed to creating a successful teaching and learning environment that allows students to grow. The program prepares students for careers in the dynamic environments of business, information technology, public and private organizations, and mass communications.
There are six academic departments in this college:
The accounting program bridges the gap between academia and business through teaching, intellectual contributions, professional interaction and service, both at the university and in the Murray community. This program is committed to teaching students to appreciate, understand and use accounting information.
The computer science and information systems program gives students access to well-equipped computer laboratories, state-of-the-art software and highly qualified professors. Classes are very small, and both undergraduate and graduate programs are offered.
The economics program at Murray State University is very flexible, and it allows its students to take a mixture of business and non-business courses that are relevant to different career goals. The economics program has relationships with local financial institutions, which gives students the opportunity to gain hands-on experience through internships and classes.
The journalism and mass communication program is accredited by the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communications. Its students gain experience creating and delivering news, content and messages, both in classes and on-campus: students run a Murray State radio station and news broadcasting station, which gives them hands-on experience creating news.
The management, marketing and business programs at Murray State train students in a variety of business-related fields, and students go on to become managers in fields like human resources, training and development and production. Students learn about emerging technologies in marketing, entrepreneurship, geographic information systems and international businesses.
The organizational communication program prepares its students to be leaders in a flexible future by giving them the skills and knowledge they will need to work in private, nonprofit or sports sectors. Students learn to asses issues in communication and find ways to improve the quality of communication. Students from this program learn about leadership, intercultural communication and conflict revolution.
