The Alabama Commission on Higher Education has approved the University of South Alabama Mitchell College of Business’s request to change its Doctor of Business Administration to a Doctor of Philosophy in Business Administration. The change means graduates will earn a Ph.D. instead of a DBA. 

Message from the Dean
As always, March has been an interesting month in South Alabama.  The city’s annual celebration of Mardi Gras came to a screeching halt on Fat Tuesday.  Two finance faculty members and I missed the big day traveling to New York City with students attending the Financial Management Association Leadership Conference.

Alumni Spotlight: Jason Saulters
Although you won’t find Jason Saulters in the classrooms of South any longer, you may find this alumnus fishing or enjoying all the great outdoors has to offer! When he is not fishing, reading, and writing, he enjoys coaching sports and participating in all of his children’s activities.
