Program Description: The Raj Soin College of Business is committed to providing quality education that is both broad based and professionally relevant; to creating an environment that fosters faculty development and strengthens the college’s links with the external community; and to exceeding the high standards of personal and professional conduct advanced by AACSB International, which accredited the college’s M.B.A. program in 1979. As a result of this commitment to teaching, research, service, and outreach, the university’s mission extends to the growth and development of the metropolitan Dayton area and Miami Valley, and explores problems that have local, state, regional, national, and international applications.
The Raj Soin College of Business offers degree programs leading to the Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) degree, the Master of Science (M.S.) degree in Social and Applied Economics, the Master of Science (M.S.) degree in Logistics Management, and the Master of Accountancy (M.Acc.) degree. Each student’s program is planned on an individual basis, taking into consideration the student’s background, needs, and objectives. This allows any program to be built on the student’s undergraduate work in business, the arts, sciences, engineering, or other fields of study.
A chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma, the national scholastic honor society in the field of business and administration, was established by the College of Business and Administration in 1976.

The M.B.A. Degree The mission of the Wright State M.B.A. degree program is to develop managers and leaders whose understanding and vision encompass the total organization. Graduates will work effectively within and across functional areas and understand the entire organization and its environment. Consistent with this mission, the primary learning objectives of the program are to develop in our students a cross-functional understanding of organizational operations; further develop students’ critical and analytical thinking skills; enhance students’ communication skills—oral, written, and interpersonal; and develop the ability to work collaboratively.
The M.S. Degree in Social and Applied Economics For more information about the Master of Science Degree in Social and Applied Economics program, see Economics section.
The M.S. Degree in Logistics Management This program combines the study of business administration with advanced logistics courses. In an era of shrinking product life cycles, proliferating product lines, shifting distribution chains, and changing technology, mastery of logistics has become an essential ingredient of competitive success. The M.S. program in Logistics Management provides an excellent background for this purpose. For more information on this program, see M.S. in Logistics Management section.
The M.Acc. Degree The aim of the Master of Accountancy (M.Acc.) program is to provide students with a broad set of competencies designed to facilitate success in professional accounting careers and to qualify graduates to sit for the uniform CPA examination in the state of Ohio. See M.Acc. degree requirements.
