The University of Memphis is a learner-centered metropolitan research university providing high quality educational experiences while pursuing new knowledge through research, artistic expression, and interdisciplinary and engaged scholarship.

From the opening of its doors in 1912 as a normal school for training teachers to its present status as one of Tennessee’s two comprehensive universities, the University of Memphis has been thrust forward by the growth of Memphis and the Mid-South. A town oriented to a rural economy and culture in 1900 grew into a large urban and commercial center mid-century, and the city’s public institution of higher learning experienced comparable growth.

The function of The Fogelman College of Business and Economics (FCBE) is to provide the basic education at the undergraduate level necessary to prepare a person to enter the profession of business. A significant characteristic of the college is that it provides for concentration in the departments of economics and business, not as a substitute for, but as a part of, a broad liberal education.
