Welcome to the Coggin College of Business at the University of
North Florida. In 2015, we were named a best business college by the Princeton
Review for the ninth year in a row. Our faculty are distinguished researchers
who are well-known nationally and internationally in their areas of expertise,
and pride themselves on providing personal experiences and interactions with
students. We are an ideal college for high-caliber students and working
professionals who want to be challenged by strong undergraduate and masters
programs, and who seek to participate in transformational learning
opportunities available on-campus and off-campus.
Our transformational learning opportunities include internships
arranged by our in-house Career Management
Center, study abroad programs
in Africa, Asia, Europe, and South America, and hands-on experience with state
of the art business computing technology. Our LITSLAB has cutting edge optimization software,
and our Financial Trading Lab is equipped with the best trading simulation software. For investment
experience, our students manage the Osprey Fund and are able to interact with
some of best minds in investments and financial services. Capitalizing on our
location in the active and growing Jacksonville metropolitan area with nearby
beaches, we have partnerships with national accounting firms, financial
institutions, insurance companies, transportation companies, logistics
companies, and medical services providers, among others. We also have an active
and engaged Business Advisory Council committed to growing Coggin and UNF and
expanding opportunities for our students.
Our undergraduate and graduate programs in business and accounting
are AACSB accredited, and AACSB accreditation is the international gold
standard for quality academic programs in business management. We offer bachelor's
degree programs in accounting, economics, finance, financial services,
international business, transportation & logistics, management, and
marketing. Two of our undergraduate programs (International Business and Transportation
& Logistics) have UNF flagship designation, and represent one-third of
the flagship programs at UNF. Our graduate programs include a MBA, GlobalMBA, and Masters in Accounting. The flagship designation and AACSB
accreditation attest to our overall outstanding program quality, growing
regional and national reputation, talented faculty, and students being well-trained
and prepared to serve local and global businesses and industry.
We have several business centers that allow our faculty to interact with and
provide business and economic data to the community and state, including the
Bank of America Institute, the Center for
International Business Studies, the Local Economic
Indicators Project, the Paper Institute, the Center for Sustainable Business Practices, the Center for Economic and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Research, and the Small Business Development Center.
Please explore our website and come visit us at the Coggin College. We look
forward to meeting you and exploring the vast opportunities available here.
