From its founding in 1836, Emory has grown into a national teaching, research, and service center with an enrollment of 13,893. A coeducational, private university affiliated with the United Methodist Church, Emory awards more than two thousand degrees annually. In addition to Oxford College, the university comprises Emory College; the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences; a broad program in the allied health professions; and schools of business, law, medicine, theology, nursing, and public health.
Oxford College students may apply to the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) program in their last semester at Oxford. To start in the fall of junior year, applications for admission must be received by February 15. Applications to start in spring of the sophomore year must be received by October 1. All applicants must complete the requirements for the associates (AA) degree from Oxford to be eligible for admission to the BBA program.
The Oxford curriculum provides background for a number of professional programs, including allied health professions, dentistry, engineering, law, medicine, pharmacy, theology, and veterinary medicine. Students should contact the professional school of their choice for more specific information as requirements may differ between programs and/or schools. In addition, each student planning to pursue one of these professions should work with his or her academic adviser to plan a program of study at Oxford College.
The Board of Trustees governs the university by establishing policy and exercising fiduciary responsibility for the long-term well-being of the institution. The board and its executive committee act on recommendations from board committees, university officers, and the university senate.
