Business at JMU
The College of Business is a community committed to preparing students to be active and engaged citizens who are exceptionally well qualified leaders for success in a global competitive marketplace.
Nothing in the business world operates in a vacuum. The same can be said for our business curriculum.
The College of Business is among the top 5% of business schools in the United States. It has been consistently highly ranked by Bloomberg Businessweek.
Our juniors spend a semester in an integrated course that’s team-taught by professors from finance, management, marketing, and operations. 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 90 companies visit our campus each year, while more than 600 companies recruit for full-time positions through a job board. Bloomberg Businessweek consistently gives us a job placement grade of A or better.
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.
