Robert H. Ledbetter College of Business

Welcome from the Dean

Welcome to the Robert H. Ledbetter College of Business (COB) at Shorter University. The COB and Shorter University are very excited about having you as the student on board as a part of our growing tradition of excellence. Our primary goal is to promote leadership, excellence, and most importantly enrich our student’s faith, education, and career opportunities.

The Robert H. Ledbetter College of Business has a diverse and tight-knit student body who elect to major in one of our undergraduate degree programs: Accounting, Computer Information Systems, Management, Management Information Systems, Marketing, or Sport Management. We are also proud to offer online programs in Business Administration, Sport Management, Master of Accountancy, MBA, as well as an MBA with an emphasis in Sport Management and Healthcare Management.

We are proud of our heritage here at Shorter University and our long tradition of offering a rich educational experience in a Christian environment. As a Private University in Rome, GA we thrive to engage within the local community as well as the surrounding areas. We want to provide our students with every opportunity and resource possible in order to be successful.

The Robert H. Ledbetter College of Business also boasts a large number of international students who lend their unique perspectives to an already multi-cultural classroom experience. We are proud of our low student to faculty ratio, our compassionate faculty who offer individualized attention, a challenging curriculum, experiential learning opportunities to prepare you for your career, (e.g., internships, service learning activities, and consulting projects), and student organizations.

Please let us know what additional information you need that will help you to make a decision to become a part of the Robert H. Ledbetter College of Business at Shorter University. If you would like more information, please email the Dean, Dr. Heath Hooper, at hhooper@nullshorter.edu. I hope that you will visit us soon.
