Hands on Learning at JMU
Nothing in the business world operates in a vacuum. The same can be said for our business curriculum.
BusinessWeek has ranked our College of Business third on the public schools list and fourth out of all undergraduate business schools in the U.S. for return on investment, calculated by comparing annual tuition and required fees and median starting salaries for 2008 graduates.
Our juniors spend a semester in an integrated course that's team-taught by professors from every business discipline. This unique synthesis prepares them to understand the interrelations of business systems, an incredible advantage over students from other schools.
Constant innovation is our hallmark. More than 250 companies visit our campus each year. Our job placement rate is about 90 percent during the past decade.
Our students learn to excel in group work because we know that employers demand it.
What do our business students expect? Academic rigor, team projects, class presentations, priority on information technology, a supportive infrastructure. And a successful future.
