The McAfee School of Business has been recognized for its success in a variety of areas:
The School of Business builds its programs on a solid foundation:
The McAfee School of Business Administration is accredited by AACSB International (The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business).
In support of Union University's mission, the McAfee School of Business Administration is a learning community that promotes business education in a Christian context. The school provides undergraduate and graduate programs that are designed to prepare our students for dynamic business environments through quality teaching with personal attention. Scholarly research enhances student education through the diverse intellectual perspectives of the faculty.
While the programs of the McAfee School of Business Administration are appropriately similar to those offered by other universities in the coverage of the basic business knowledge and skills, at Union University, they reflect three mission-driven distinctives:
Students majoring in Accounting can choose concentrations in general, public, and managerial accounting. While most accountants (about 60 percent) are involved in managerial accounting, about 25 percent work in public accounting firms, with the remainder employed by government and educational or not-for-profit institutions. The major certification programs are the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and Certified Management Accountant (CMA).
Economics/Finance majors choose from concentrations in banking and financial services, financial analysis, economics or international economics/finance. Career opportunities for economics/finance majors, in addition to positions in banking or corporate management, include city managers, chamber of commerce executives, stockbrokers, financial planners, and credit analysts.
A degree in International Business reflects academic preparation on a broad educational platform. This program of study expressly means the understanding of languages, business and culture, which form the basis of a stu-dent’s preparation for life. This prepara-tion indicates to employers that you are prepared for difficult assignments in either the United States or abroad.
Management is the largest undergraduate major at Union, encompassing management of human resources, organizational behavior, the application of the legal system to the environment of business, and strategic management of organizations. Career opportunities are strong and diverse, in companies and organizations large and small, including production management, human resource management, banking, and most service-related businesses.
Marketing students study fields such as advertising, consumer behavior, marketing research and marketing management. Career opportunities span the world of business, from corporate marketing positions to sales and entrepreneurial opportunities.

enactus (formerly SIFE) serves to educate the community about how market economics and businesses operate through our various projects throughout the year. Not only does this organization function to educate the community, but it also provides Union students with the opportunity to grow professionally and develop valuable leadership skills. With each project, students learn about what it takes to execute a project and the experiences the students gain are indispensable. Each project is geared toward the achievement of not only our goals within the Union University community, but also the national enactus criteria.

The fraternity strives to develop better leadership qualities among its members in order to ensure greater success in their future of business.
