The Southern Business Administration Association (SBAA) is the regional association of collegiate business programs offered by colleges and universities in the southern US.
Welcome to the SBAA website! Here you will find information about the organization and have the opportunity to join or renew your institutional membership and register for upcoming meetings.
Over the past few years, the SBAA board engaged in a strategic planning initiative to provide greater direction and clarity for the organization. As a result of that activity, we adopted the following mission statement, values, and strategic goals:
Mission: SBAA encourages the continued education of our membership by providing networking opportunities; showcasing best practices; promoting innovation in teaching, management and scholarship; and encouraging our membership to become leaders among peers.
Core Values: Leadership – Integrity – Community — Collaboration
Goal 1: Maintain a strong regional presence and reputation
Goal 2: Solidify the SBAA brand
Goal 3: Elevate the educational profile of SBAA
Goal 4: Ensure continuity of SBAA
SBAA offers its members an opportunity to gather twice a year to gain insight into and share best practices on how business schools are innovating, becoming more entrepreneurial, and breaking down silos to respond to the fast pace of technological challenges, new competitive forces, and the rapidly changing global economy. We invite you to join us to share your innovations and best practices and to network with like-minded educators and leaders. We learn best when we engage in learning together.
All the best,
Mary Gowan, SBAA President
