THE RAYMOND J. HARBERT COLLEGE OF BUSINESS prepares students to become effective and socially responsible managers of business, industrial organizations, and government agencies and responsible citizens and leaders of society. To achieve this goal, the Harbert College offers undergraduate programs leading to the bachelor of science in business administration. In addition, it offers graduate work for the degrees of master of business administration (MBA), master of science in business administration (MSBA) with a concentration in finance, master of science in management information systems (MSIS), master of accountancy (MAc), and the doctor of philosophy (PhD) in business. The Harbert College of Business and the School of Accountancy are accredited at the undergraduate and graduate levels by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International). Detailed information on graduate programs may be found in the Graduate School section in this Bulletin.

Curriculum

The undergraduate curriculum includes a two-year Pre-Business curriculum required of all students and a two-year Major curriculum selected by the student. These two curricula provide a balanced course of study for all students, with approximately one-half of the hours in business courses and one-half in courses offered outside the college. The courses required have been selected so that all students will have access to the “common body of knowledge” as designated by the College’s accrediting agency, AACSB International.

The Pre-Business curriculum, followed by all business students in their freshman and sophomore years, provides a sound foundation of work in the arts and sciences, including courses in mathematics, humanities, social sciences and natural sciences. This lower division curriculum also includes some of the introductory business courses.  Students must satisfactorily complete specific portions of the pre-business curriculum prior to moving on to the major curriculum.  See the Office of Academic Advising for details.

The Major curriculum allows each student to concentrate or major in an area of interest during the junior and senior years. Currently offered majors are listed at the bottom of this page.

Through these curricula, the Harbert College seeks to develop in its students the analytical, decision-making and communication skills required of managers who lead modern organizations.

Admission to the College

Students entering the pre-business curriculum directly from high school or another university, in addition to meeting Auburn University’s admission requirements, should have competence in the mathematics taught in second year algebra.

Incoming freshmen and external transfer students are admitted directly to the Harbert College of Business. Current non-business students who are interested in transferring into the Harbert College should refer to the “Transfer Guide” on the College’s advising web page.

Graduation Requirements

To graduate, business students must meet the hours and subject matter requirements of their curricula, must have an overall GPA of at least 2.0 on all courses attempted at Auburn University, must have an overall GPA of at least 2.0 in all courses required for the major, and must meet all other university requirements. At least 50 percent of the business credit hours required for the business degree must be taken at Auburn University.

Student Services

The Harbert College’s Office of Academic Advising is responsible for orienting all new students to the college and for advising business students on their academic matriculation.  Incoming freshmen in their first semester and students on academic warning are required to meet with their academic advisor prior to registration to have their academic plan approved.  All other students are strongly encouraged to meet with their academic advisor each semester as well.

The College’s Office of Professional and Career Development is available to all business students for professional development and career guidance.  Some of the services provided include career coaching, resume writing assistance, mentoring, mock interviews, and employer engagement.
