Memphis is poised for a dramatic period of economic development, investment and expansion.
Projects such as the Aerotropolis, the Mayor's Innovation Delivery Team, and investments
from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Bill and Melinda
Gates Foundation, are but a few of the many great things happening during this period
of renewed interest in the Bluff City.
Down to Business
The University of Memphis community includes academics and students, as well as business
and regional leaders who are committed to increasing such economic development and
business partnerships across Memphis and the Mid-South.
Local Policies and Local Solutions
As elsewhere in America, economic development and business growth often dominates
the local policy agenda during recessionary periods.
From our Customer Driven MBA and the Sparks Bureau of Business and Economic Research
to the innovative Memphis Music Magnet and the Planners Network, the University is
committed to working with the community to encourage economic growth, revitalization,
investment, and mutually beneficial collaborations across the region.
The University of Memphis strives to be an active participant and partner in the solutions
that fit our local context.
