The JMU College of Business is a learning community committed to excellence in:
- preparing students to be engaged, principled business professionals and leaders;
- advancing scholarship in business disciplines; and
- enhancing organizational performance through our outreach activities.
In the College of Business, we know that nothing in the business world operates in a vacuum. That’s why our curriculum focuses on preparing students to understand the interrelationships among business functions and the environment, giving them an advantage over students from schools with traditional business programs. Our results are impressive. More than 90 companies visit our campus each year. More than 600 companies recruit for full-time positions through the campus job board. Our students consistently give us a job placement grade of A or better in the annual Bloomberg Businessweek survey of undergraduate business programs. With a strong curriculum, dedicated faculty, and connected employers, it isn’t surprising that our alumni are successful CEOs, senior vice presidents, business owners and entrepreneurs.
What can our business students expect?
Academic rigor, collaborative learning experiences, development of critical thinking, problem solving and interpersonal skills, a focus on learning business theory and tools with an emphasis on how to apply them in business situations and a faculty that is student-centric. The outcome? A successful future.
