About the Dean
As we move into the second century of the College of Business at Mississippi State University, we are experiencing strong enrollment increases on the Starkville campus as well as national recognition of several of our programs.
The College of Business, organized in 1915, is the oldest college of business in the state and one of the oldest in the South. In 1979, the Department of Accounting was designated as the School of Accountancy in answer to a need for attention to the unique requirements of the growing profession of accountancy. In 2007, the School of Accountancy was renamed the Richard C. Adkerson School of Accountancy.
