Value. Impact. Experience.
In a global economy, each and every business looks for a competitive advantage.
That means to stay ahead of the curve, you have to recognize opportunities, adapt to changing business conditions and lead during times of change. That’s how business and organizations thrive. At MSU Denver’s College of Business, we provide the business tools and skills you need to succeed and that employers demand including our new MBA program launching in January 2017.
MSU Denver’s Value
We recognize that going to college is a big investment of time, hard work and financial resources. What sets MSU Denver’s business program apart is that while we’re accredited by AACSB – the organization with the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide – we also have the lowest tuition rate for a four-year university in Colorado. Our graduates meet the highest standard of business education in the world, while our program is both affordable and accessible. No other Colorado school has this combination.
The AACSB Impact
Our college is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International. AACSB accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide. Less than 5 percent of the world's 16,000 business programs have earned AACSB accreditation. Many top, global corporations only recruit from AACSB-accredited schools, and consequently our graduates are offered better, more competitive salaries and have a higher likelihood of getting into top graduate programs.
The College of Business Experience

Edgar Maldonado, assistant professor in the Department of Computer Information Systems, is on a mission. He strives to improve public communication technology while also empowering minority youth, and he feels completely at home at MSU Denver doing both.
