Mission Statement

The Sorrell College of Business supports the Troy University mission by preparing our diverse student body to become ethical professionals equipped to compete in the global business environment. To achieve this our faculty, staff, and administration will:

  1. Provide quality education in global business through our undergraduate and graduate programs, delivered around the world through face-to-face and online environments, to traditional, non-traditional, military, and international students;
  2. Contribute to the development and application of knowledge focused on applied business, learning, and pedagogical research;
  3. Provide service to the University, business and professional organizations, and our communities through individual involvement, business outreach, and our centers for research.

Our students are currently employed in, or endeavor to be employed in, business, government, public accounting, the U.S. military, and not-for-profit organizations, both in the United States and the world over. Today many are, or intend to be, self-employed. Undergraduate students are prepared for admission to graduate programs in business, information systems, and professional schools of law. Sorrell College of Business students graduate with the knowledge and skills needed to communicate effectively, to make ethical and socially-responsible decisions, and to understand diverse and international cultures.

Sorrell College of Business faculty members are highly qualified and possess diverse academic and business backgrounds. Because our faculty members have “real-world” experience, course instruction focuses not only on vital concepts but also on practical application of these concepts.

All academic programs offered by the college assist students to develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to understand and cope with the challenges faced by business and organizational leaders in a dynamic, global workplace. The curriculum is highly germane to the needs of students and the requirements of their employers. Combining the relevance of the curriculum with the fact that our faculty holds students to a high standard throughout their academic experience at Troy means that the academic programs offered through the Sorrell College of Business are designed to provide a firm foundation for professional business leaders who, upon graduation, will have the skills necessary to embark on, or change course in, successful careers in business, industry, and government.

As part of ongoing planning and evaluation, the Sorrell College of Business regularly evaluates student learning outcomes for each degree program.
