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.
As someone who has studied abroad three times in college, I believe that an international study requirement would round out our program very well. I think that there are several other undergraduate business programs which have integrated international programs into their curriculum nicely, and if our school can adopt these types of programs, our students will be even more attractive as potential employees and future leaders of the business world. Fortunately, I see students, faculty and staff looking to add a required international component in the near future.
The number of team you are placed on for classes and the team building that occurs.
Great professors and high caliber fellow students.
The school's business program is unique in that it provides the opportunity for students to actively learn through teams and hands-on school work. The core semester involves a graduate level business simulation and aligns with the previously mentioned mission. The business professors are extremely engaging and do everything they can to make sure that the students succeed.
William & Mary has professors that are the most committed to students that I have seen and heard about. In addition to the outstanding teaching, William & Mary prepares students for the types of problems they will encounter in the real world: team projects, pressure cookers, presentations, etc. By integrating the 'foundation semester' into the mandatory curriculum, business students not only have the opportunity to gain deep expertise in their chosen area of focus, but also gain wide knowledge in the other business areas.
It's such a diverse program, and I've had the opportunity to learn totally unique and interdisciplinary things in a beautiful environment. The business school, Miller Hall, is incredibly beautiful and it's been a pleasure to learn in such a nice environment. In my studies, I've been well-rounded with courses outside of my major and introduced to computer technologies, which I had very little experience in. I also have had the opportunity to take very unique classes, such as Marketing and Society, a class that focused on marketing of CSR projects, charities and non-profit organizations. It's been amazing having access to these resources, and a heavy emphasis on teamwork along the way has really helped me grow as a team member and leader. I couldn't have asked for a better an education than the one I've gotten here.
The community. W&M business students really form networks that will last a lifetime.
The first semester you are in the business school you take all of your classes with the same group of people, and are placed in a team to do all of your work. It really prepares you for all of the presentations and case analyses that you will be doing in the business school. The professors are also always available outside of class to talk.
