Dean's Message



 Greetings from the College of Business & Public Affairs at Alabama A&M University!



The past three years have witnessed significant growth in our college. Student enrollment has increased over 25% as we look to surpass 1,400 students. We’ve added eleven exceptionally qualified faculty members to our team. Recent renovations to our building have resulted in a new student activity center (The LINQ – which stands for Learn, Innovate, Network, and Question), Experiential Learning Program Office to assist student identify and secure required co-ops/interns, and expanded MBA Program Office as we raise the quality and profile of our graduate program.  

This growth comes as we remain laser focused on our pursuit of AACSB Accreditation, the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide. Less than 5 percent of schools worldwide granting business degrees have earned this prestigious accreditation.

What does all this mean for our most important stakeholder, our students? Keeping with our mission, we are a college dedicated to providing relevant business and social science education to future professionals and leaders ready to make a positive community impact. The College of Business and Public Affairs at Alabama A&M University strives to provide our students with exceptional educational experiences so they can use their expanded knowledge, skills, abilities, and confidence to become tomorrow’s corporate executives, entrepreneurs, political leaders, and community change agents.

As our University mantra resoundingly proclaims, “Start Here, Go Anyway.” 

Delmonize “Del” Smith

Dean, College of Business and Public Affairs
