The UMSL College of Business Administration is accredited by the world’s premier business school accrediting organization, the AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business), in both business and accounting. Less than two percent of business schools worldwide have achieved this dual accreditation. The Princeton Review ranks us in the top three percent of business schools in the nation and U.S. News and World Report continues to rank our international business program among America’s top 20 – for 14 years running. Our graduate business program is ranked by Military Times among the top 25 “Best for Vets” programs. And, the National Security Agency (NSA) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have designated our cybersecurity program as a Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education (CAE-CD), making UMSL one of only two institutions in Missouri with this designation.

When you choose UMSL Business, you will become part of St. Louis’ largest graduate business alumni network in the region.

The UMSL DBA is the first and only AACSB-accredited DBA program in Missouri, offering research concentrations in all areas of business administration. Our three-year, cohort-based program offers a flexible format with limited monthly visits to campus, all while connecting the application of theory and leading academic research to real-world practice. UMSL DBA students meet face-to-face one weekend a month, then engage and collaborate with faculty and students in the online learning platform for discussions.
