College of Business

The 爱博体育 College of Business is a teaching-focused business school committed to student success while serving the Clarksville and Nashville metropolitan areas. We strive to push students beyond the textbook and help them explore their passions, in order to empower our graduates to compete in a global economy.

Austin Peay's Business programs will push you beyond the textbook and prepare you to compete in a global economy. 

Our students are applying their coursework knowledge to hands-on experiences, preparing them for real-world business scenarios. When they’re not making history with the first banking program in the state, they’re managing a real $500,000 investment portfolio and building marketing campaigns for local nonprofits.

Explore what’s possible

We offer a range of programs for students to explore their passions while providing critical resources such as service-learning courses, internships, scholarships and access to a team of professional advisors and a career readiness coach. From day one, we’re committed to helping you grow #FromHereToHired.

Our undergraduate programs include Accounting, Finance, Marketing and Management. We also offer concentrations in Economics, and Hospitality Management.

The Master of Business Administration program is offered completely online. It is designed for students with a bachelor’s degree in any field and offers fast-track terms that last just eight-weeks. Convenient online courses enable students to balance graduate studies with work and personal commitments, with an option to graduate in 12 to 24 months. The program also offers a unique concentration and certificate in Responsible Human Resources Management.
