  • Truman is one of 17 institutions to have its accreditation extended in both business and accounting.

    The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB) recently released its list of schools with extensions of accreditation. In total, 44 schools were extended for business, two for accounting and 17, including Truman, were extended in both business and accounting.

    For more than a century, AACSB accreditation has been synonymous with the highest standards in business education and has been earned by only five percent of the world’s schools offering business degrees at the bachelor level or higher. Today, 831 institutions across 54 countries and territories have earned AACSB accreditation. Further, 189 institutions hold supplemental AACSB accreditation for their accounting programs. Once accreditation is achieved, each institution participates in a five-year continuous improvement peer-review to maintain high quality and extend its accreditation.

    As the world’s largest business education alliance, AACSB International connects educators, students and businesses to achieve a common goal: to create the next generation of great leaders.

  • Originally from Senegal, Sana Camara has chosen to make Kirksville his home for nearly 30 years. He enjoys small-town life, finding it less stressful and more affordable than living in a big city.

    While Camara and his wife welcomed their third child in the fall, his kids are not the only people he is helping find their way in the world. He actively works with the increasing number of Congolese immigrants relocating to Kirksville. As a professor of French, he is able to assist the non-native speakers when it comes to paying their bills, finding a job and even obtaining a driver’s license.

    Outside of the classroom Camara maintains a rigorous commitment to academia. He is the author of five books. In his free time, he enjoys watching sports on television.

  • According to The Princeton Review, Truman is one of the nation’s best colleges for students seeking a superb education with great career preparation at an affordable price.

    Truman is included in the education services company’s recently released book, “The Best Value Colleges: 200 Schools with Exceptional ROI for Your Tuition Investment.” The Princeton Review chose the schools based on data it collected in 2017-18 from surveys of administrators at more than 650 colleges. It also factored in data from surveys of students as well as surveys of alumni conducted by PayScale.com.

    In total, The Princeton Review included more than 40 data points to tally return on investment ratings of the colleges that determined its selection of the 200 schools for the book. Topics covered everything from academics, cost and financial aid to graduation rates, student debts, alumni salaries and job satisfaction.

  • The Department of Economics will be sponsoring the Speaker Series: The Unintended Consequences of Drug Prohibition at 6:00 Monday, February 25 in the Baldwin Hall Little Theatre.

    Featured speaker Dr. Audrey Redford earned her Ph.D. in economics from Texas Tech University and her undergraduate degree, also in economics, from James Madison University. Her research interests in entrepreneurship include market adaptations to changes in policy and institutional foundations using the tools of public choice economics, comparative institutional analysis, and Australian economics. While in graduate school she was an Adam Smith Fellow with the Mercatus Center and a Humane Studies Fellow with the Institute for Humane Studies at George Mason University.

    Redford’s presentation will begin to answer questions such as: What does ‘drug prohibition’ mean in the United States? How does our understanding of illegal drug markets change as we examine the unintended consequences of drug prohibition policies in addition to the intended consequences? How do changes in drug policy influence entrepreneurial behavior in illegal drug markets and sometimes unintentionally incentivize dangerous outcomes? How are the answers to these questions relevant to our current opioid crisis?
