College of Business

Welcome from Dr. Ann Murphy, DeanAnn Murphy

Welcome to the College of Business at Metropolitan State University of Denver. As you browse the site, you'll become acquainted with the business programs and faculty that help make MSU Denver a premier business degree-granting institution in Colorado.

Consistent with its mission, The College of Business offers students a variety of educational opportunities that lead to a bachelor’s degree in Accounting, Computer Information Systems, Economics, Finance, Management or Marketing.   We are also proud to offer a Masters of Professional Accountancy, readying accounting students for the changes in the state’s CPA requirements. The school also provides opportunities for non-degree seeking students to gain additional undergraduate education through our extensive course offerings and certificate programs. The school provides convenient access to instruction through traditional classroom sessions and innovative online delivery. Classes meet at the main Auraria campus, the Metro South campus, and Metro North campus. Classes are offered during the day, evenings, and weekends and include extensive summer offerings in addition to courses during the traditional academic year.

As a teaching institution, MSU Denver emphasizes innovative, contemporary instruction and a nurturing, transforming educational experience. This quality business education is provided by a faculty committed to providing quality education for future business leaders. The faculty stays current through scholarly activity, continuous professional development, and engagement with the business and professional community.

The College's faculty includes new and seasoned professors who continue to distinguish themselves academically as well as veteran business professionals who apply complex theory to contemporary business practices. Our faculty includes Fulbright Scholars, editors of academic journals, and nationally recognized academic scholars.

In addition to the quality curriculum and professors, the success of the College of Business can also be attributed to our students and our partners in the business community, who demonstrate, through their achievements and their generosity, the role MSU Denver plays as a member of the Colorado Community.

Located on the Auraria Campus, MSU Denver has a diverse student and faculty population in the heart of Downtown Denver. Such diversity contributes to a more enriching educational experience. In the hub of the Denver business community, MSU Denver is building partnerships to reflect its dedication to the Colorado business community. Such alliances will build bridges between the business community and students entering the workforce.

I invite you, one of tomorrow's leaders, to explore the College of Business web site and learn more about our remarkable students, unique mission, and quality faculty.
