The VCU School of Business ranks in the top five percent of business schools worldwide due to its AACSB International-accredited status. Our dedicated faculty and prime location within one of the top research universities in the nation ensure that students have the support they need to pursue the aspects of business they find most interesting.
The school is a close-knit community within a large urban university. Take a walk around Snead Hall, our state-of-the-art building, and you will find students studying together in the armchairs of the atrium, collaborating on group projects in our fourteen breakout rooms and the da Vinci Center, meeting with faculty in the cafe, and gathering in the student organization meeting room.
Opportunities to gain practical work experience abound thanks to the school's many connections with the local and regional business community. Students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels interact with executives through coursework, internships, and industry-affiliated student organizations. Our Career Services center brings students and employers together through career fairs, networking events, on-site interviews and other career-building activities.
Upon graduation, students are welcomed into the VCU Business Alumni Society, a strong and proud network of more than 25,000 alumni.
We hope you will take time to learn more about the bachelors, masters, post-baccalaureate certificate and doctoral degrees we offer - and that you will see the opportunities waiting for you in the collaborative, experiential learning environment inside the school's headquarters, Snead Hall. Are you ready?
