Dear College of Business students, community leaders, and friends,

I hope that you are all doing well and that you are staying safe. 

Together, we are facing a truly unprecedented situation with the spread of the COVID-19. We want you to know that the UWF College of Business is doing our very best to rise to the challenge and exceed expectations despite the uncertain circumstances. 

In these hard times, we would like to deliver some uplifting or helpful information to you.

  • Program Excellence - The UWF College of Business continues to be recognized nationally. This year, UWF’s online MBA program was recognized by the U.S. News and World Report. Our Master of Accountancy has also been rated one of the top 25 Master’s in Accounting Online Degrees by the Guide to Online Schools.
  • One on One Support - Even online, we are constantly trying to meet students’ expectations and stay connected with our community. For example, the COB advisors are taking online appointments through Google Meet to continue to advise students through their degrees. Also, the Global Hospitality and Tourism Management Department has been hosting weekly roundtables with local hospitality leaders that are broadcasted live on our Facebook page.

Despite all the difficulties, I believe that we are able to get through this unanticipated pandemic together. We will be strong for each other, for ourselves, and for the College of Business. We will come out on the other side stronger. 

Sending my best to you and your families, and wishing for all of you to stay safe and take care.

Dr. Richard M. Fountain

Our students’ successes are due in large part to student-oriented education experiences, our small class sizes, and opportunities for interaction and mentorship by our dedicated College of Business faculty.
