Stay Connected in 2013: New things ahead for the College of Business

Auburn College of Business | Lowder Hall

Did you know Auburn’s College of Business is among the nation’s best business schools? We are ranked 27th among public business schools in the U.S. according to U.S. News & World Report.  About 80% of our accounting graduates pass all four parts of the CPA exam on the first sitting – compared to a national average of about 8%.  Our online graduate programs are ranked #7 in the country.  And, our MBA program is tied for 1st among all schools for return on investment according to Forbes.

The accolades go on and on.

Did you know this about the College of Business?  It is likely you didn’t.  Why? Because we do not do a good job of letting our stakeholders know about these types of things.

Well, we are going to fix this problem. Among the many communications initiatives this year is the one you are visiting now – our new social media site. Over the past few months, we have been quietly building our new site and enabling our social media capabilities, primarily Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.

Our goal is to provide timely information about the College of Business – rankings, guest speakers, special events, faculty research, student accomplishments, and much more.  We want you to know what is going on.  But, we don’t want this to be a one-way street.  We want you to use social media to let us know what you are thinking and what is going on with you – we want, correction – need, you to be involved.

So, what are you waiting for?

The new site is specially built for your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, Android, etc.).  Take a look.  Let us know what you think.  But most of all, get involved!
