Ball State University – Miller College of Business
When successful businessman Wallace T. Miller Jr. died unexpectedly in 1998, his gift to Ball State University’s College of Business was the largest single private gift from an individual in the history of the university. Through his generosity, Wally Miller created a legacy for future generations of Ball State business students, and Ball State’s first named college now bears his name. With accreditation from AACSB International—the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business—Miller College is among the world’s top five percent of business schools. AACSB is the premier professional accrediting body for schools of business, and we work hard to maintain this credential. Ball State was the first state-supported institution in Indiana to hold separate AACSB accreditation for Accounting, an even more selective list, with only about 170 schools across the globe with accredited accounting programs.
The Miller College of Business is located in Muncie, Indiana. It is located about 50 miles from Indianapolis, Indiana.
The Miller College of Business hosts its programming in the Whitinger Business Building. The Whitinger Business Building houses the office of our Miller College of Business (MCOB) and its Departments of Accounting, Economics, Finance and Insurance, Information Systems and Operations Management (ISOM), Marketing and Management. The college has several nationally recognized programs, including those in entrepreneurial management, selling, and accounting. Also housed in the building is the Center for Business and Economic Research, an economic policy and forecasting research center. The building was built in1979 and renovated in 2004.
