Memphis is home to many of America’s greatest companies, and the Fogelman College
takes maximum advantage of the metropolitan environment in which it is located. Students
are provided opportunities to interact with the business community through real-world,
relevant and important projects and internships. When you combine the wealth of real-world
experience available to Fogelman College students with a philosophy geared to make
the student more marketable to employers, the result is exceptional graduates who
can compete with the best in the world and who are prepared for professionally and
financially rewarding positions when they enter the workforce.
The Fogelman College operates under a faculty portfolio model which allows us to effectively
educate students at all stages in their education – whether they are undergraduate,
masters or doctoral level. Under this unique model, we maximize the individual talents
of each faculty member. While all faculty are engaged in varying degrees in relevant
research and knowledge generation to solve business problems, some faculty members
specialize in educating and inspiring our undergraduate students; others apply their
unique talents to executive education and building bridges to the business community;
a third group of faculty members find their calling in educating our Ph.D. students.
Faculty are recruited or assigned responsibilities to take advantage of their specific
skill set, and we constantly evaluate the current and needed skills of our faculty
members so we can optimize the knowledge generation and dissemination functions.
Whether you are a current or future product or customer of the Fogelman College, or
someone just looking for more information, I hope you will take the time to explore
our Web site and visit the College in person. I look forward to working with you in
whatever capacity you may require.
