Dean's Welcome

Welcome to the Earl G. Graves School of Business and Management (SBM) at Morgan State University.  I have served as the Dean for over two decades and am proud of the progress we have made over that time.  We now offer a comprehensive and well-rounded business education to over a thousand undergraduate, MBA and Ph.D. students.  SBM is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and offers demanding degrees in Accounting, Business Administration, Finance, Information Science and Systems, Management and Marketing.  No matter what our students' career goals, our programs of study offer a sound background in business principles and practices. 

The SBM Honors Program is an extension of the University Honors Program.  The focus of the program is student leadership.  Honor students participate in structured activities and experiences designed to both challenge them and ensure that they have every opportunity to develop personally and professionally.                                     

The strength of the SBM is our outstanding faculty.  One of the best ways to develop expertise in business is to study with people who have strong business experience as well as impressive academic credentials.  Our faculty members are exceptional teachers.  As role models, mentors, advisors and friends, they stand ready to help our students find their way into the business world.  They challenge our students every day to achieve their goals, while remaining supportive. 

Beyond our in-class programs, the SBM offers numerous internship, mentorship and coop programs, which allow our students an opportunity to test their knowledge and the theories of the classroom in real-world business and management situations.  In addition, our Entrepreneurial Development and Assistance Center,  the Center for Entrepreneurship and Strategy provide research, outreach and community development opportunities to help the University interact and work with the Baltimore business community.  Success is a journey and not a destination and we work every day to improve the SBM. 

Please enjoy your visit to our website and feel free to send me a note if you have any questions or need any other information.
