A MESSAGE FROM THE DEAN
Dr. Rajiv Grover Greetings from the Fogelman College of Business and Economics! Memphis should be proud of its place as one of the key industrial centers of the United States. From package shipping to paper products to automobile parts stores, to cotton, to medical devices to myriad other business concerns, Memphis is a major player in the country's business landscape. With the world's largest cargo airport, a passenger air travel hub, and as a rail, highway, and river crossroads located in the center of the country, Memphis is a factor in much of the nation's business. In terms of tourism, everyone knows that Memphis is the home of the blues and the birthplace of rock & roll, but did you know that Memphis has the second most visited home site in the country (Graceland!) or that the Memphis Zoo is one of only four zoos in the U.S. that has pandas? Just as the City of Memphis has been silently toiling in the background, not boasting of its many first-in-its-class attributes, the Fogelman College of Business and Economics has been tirelessly fulfilling the higher education needs of the
city, region and beyond, in a world-class manner. More so now than ever, The University of Memphis' Fogelman College of Business and Economics renews its pledge to bring its international capabilities to the aid of the city and region by offering educational programs designed to specifically meet the needs of its customers the local business community. As the Fogelman College is the only AACSBaccredited business school in the Memphis metropolitan area we take great care that our professors continue to receive national and international recognition for their research and publications all, again, in an endeavor to serve our customers by generating and disseminating cutting edge knowledge. To serve the stellar local companies and to serve the best interests of the students themselves, we strive to attract the best students from around the nation and the world. It is important to attract students on a regional, national, and international basis to achieve a stimulating educational environment with the wide perspective that a broadly-based student body brings. Such a broad, global mind-set not only serves local Memphis companies with a sophisticated talent pool from which to
recruit, it also serves the students well as they become employable by any company anywhere in the world. With a growing honors program at the undergraduate level and such graduate level efforts as our new Customer-Driven MBA program, we are well on our way to accomplishing these goals. I am reaching out to the greater Memphis business community to continue to build a mutually supportive partnership. I invite each and every one of you in the Memphis business community to engage with us. Help us recruit students! Hire our graduates! Create internships for our students! Come to our classes and give guest lectures! Bring our students and faculty in to help you solve real business problems as case studies. We're all in this together and together we can help Memphis and the Memphis business community reach its potential as a premiere center of U.S. commerce and industry. Dr. Rajiv Grover Dean

The School of Accountancy

The School's 14 professors, including two in business law, are led by Dr. Carolyn Callahan, the School's Director. Degree programs include the B.B.A. in Accounting, the M.S. in Accounting with three concentration areas: taxation, audit, and IT audit, and the Ph.D. in Accounting. The School's faculty members have particular expertise in financial reporting, taxation, accounting information systems

Their goal is to produce accounting graduates who, in addition to being knowledgeable in accounting and its functional support of organizations, are technologically competent, critical thinkers and problem solvers, effective communicators and team members, and are aware of ethical ramifications and global business implications of decisions. The School of Accountancy's chapter of the accounting honorary, Beta Alpha Psi, is the only chapter in the Mid-South that has been rated a "superior chapter" by the national organization. This honor is based on the department's service to the Memphis community, particularly its Voluntary Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, sponsored by the Internal Revenue Service. During tax season, many of the School's undergraduate and graduate students, together with some of its professors, volunteer to provide free tax preparation service to disadvantaged Memphis residents. They have produced more credits (earned income tax credits) per member than anyone else. This led to the School's receiving a prestigious IRS National Partnership Award in 2007. Among the School's distinguished faculty, Dr. John Malloy, who holds degrees in both accounting and law, teaches programs for the Tennessee Society of CPAs and is one of five judges in the Memphis Business Journal's Small Business Award program.

Department of Management The Department of Management in the Fogelman College of Business and Economics provides a management major with an emphasis on developing human resource management and people-related skills. Our major prepares students for management careers in the non-technical fields such as those related to services, non-profit and government organizations. We also provide a management education component for all programs within the college - undergraduate, masters, and Ph.D. and as such we are one of the primary support areas for the college. We have a successful on-going Ph.D. program that has provided a cadre of nearly 60 quality educators and researchers for other universities around the country. It is through, and as an integral part of, this Ph.D. program that we demonstrate our "program" focus in Human Resource Management/Organizational Behavior, with a secondary focus on strategic management
and International Business.
Our primary curricular emphasis is on the individual and group organizational, strategic, and structural aspects of management. Thematically, we focus on the management and leadership of the human resources within organizations, from the most direct human resource management issues involved in oneon-one interpersonal interaction, to the more abstract aspects of developing organizational strategies utilizing an executive team and information from throughout an organization. The Department is comprised of an outstanding group of highly recognized researchers in the management disciplines, including two world renowned Chairs of Excellence who specialize in strategic management and international business respectively. Dr. Ben Kedia runs the Wang Center for International Business, one of only 25 CIBERs (Center for International Business Education and Research) in the United States - the others typically being at other renowned academic institutions such as University of Michigan, University of South Carolina, and Southern Cal. Dr. Peter Wright has approximately 20 A and A+ journal publications integrating various aspects of strategy and agency theory. Dr. Rabi Bhagat is a fellow in four different top academic organizations in management and is considered one of the top researchers in International Organizational Behavior. Dr. David Allen recently authored the definitive applied position paper on organizational retention that was published by the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) and sent to 100,000 HR managers worldwide. Our researchers have received nearly one million dollars in grant money in just the last six years. Others in the program support these efforts with service and academic outreach activities. Bob Taylor recently partnered with local businessman Austin Baker to start the Memphis Institute for Leadership Education (MILE) Leadership Mentoring program that matches College of Business juniors and seniors with local businessmen who serve as their mentors for one academic year. That highly successful program grew from its initial roster of 25 mentor-protйgй pairs in 2007-08 to 83 pairs in the present academic year.

Fogelman College Initiatives
Fogelman College Initiatives The Fogelman College of Business and Economics has developed several initiatives to give its students a richer college experience and to give its customers the business community a higher quality workforce. Holistic Student Development - The Four C's and the Body: The Fogelman College, in conjunction with business leaders, have identified "the four C's": Communication, Creativity, Critical Thinking, and Emotional Control, all of which add to Self-Confidence as vital to an individual's success in an organization. We develop our students on these dimensions with the help of a Panel of Executives consisting of role models from the Memphis business community who coach and
mentor students by visiting classes and through virtual contact. In a similar vein, physically fit employees are a boon to employers. We include a program, developed with the help of Humana, which encourage students in this direction. Developing Students to Confidently Leverage their Strengths: It takes people with a variety of aptitudes and skills to run a successful business. The Fogelman College guides its undergraduate students toward corporate functions at which they can excel. This is accomplished through the evaluation of students' ACT/SAT scores, performance in freshman and sophomore courses, and indepth interviews.
