Mason School of Business

For nearly four centuries the College of William & Mary has been driven by distinctive ideals of service, entrepreneurship and innovation in educating forward-thinking, ethically minded leaders. Our undergraduate business program challenges each student to design an Individual Program of Study that inspires ones talents, passions, and aspirations – in business and beyond. At the dawn of the new century, business students of the nation’s “alma mater” emerge with a perspective and experience that combine commerce, integrity, and hard work to change our world for the better.

What Current Students Say See All 10 Comments >

Our Business Program is unique because faculty, staff and students work very closely together to ensure that the program is dynamic, adapting to new challenges, enjoyable, and productive. Faculty and staff are constantly thinking outside of the box to improve classes, programs, study abroad trips and career services. Students' opinions and experiences are the focus of the program and truly make an impact on its future. Having a second major outside of the Business School, I can say with authority that the Business School does more for its students than any other department on our campus. This is evidenced by the commitment of Mason School alumni to the program and the success of current students. Lastly, I feel that the Business School takes pride in me and my peers. There is a remarkable level of mutual respect between students and faculty/staff. I feel lucky to have learned from this program.
