Student success is augmented through services of the Center for Academic and Professional Success (CAPS), which oversees the delivery of the College’s Professional Development curriculum, coordinates the College’s Internship programs, and advises student organizations. CAPS also houses the Career Services Office.

The Center for External Relations coordinates sponsored research, executive education, and advancement/development activities of the College, while the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) offers business counseling to existing and prospective small businesses.  The Center for Research in Economic Education and Literacy in Finance (CREELF) provides an academic resource for public and private schools, K-12 teachers and students, and adult learners in the Urban Central Mississippi area. The College houses a state-of-the-art Trading Room.

In addition to 40 full-time faculty members, the college has frequent visitors and lecturers from business, government, and nonprofit organizations who share their insight and experience. Students have regular opportunities to interact with academics, top researchers, executives, and managers from businesses and industries in the Jackson Metropolitan area and around the nation.
