A Message from Dean Nancy A. Bagranoff
Thank you for your interest in the Robins School of Business. No matter whether you are a prospective student, corporate partner seeking qualified student candidates, or an alumni member looking to tap into our strong Robins School network, I hope that you will find our site engaging and informative.
The Robins School of Business is a stimulating environment where students come to learn and grow both as future professionals and as community leaders. We are committed to offering our students the best business education in the world. We do that through our own programs and by connecting our students with 49 partner schools around the globe. Our mission is to prepare leaders for the global business environment by engaging them in an active learning community, where excellent teaching, scholarship, and service are integrated into a liberal arts university.
As one of the nation’s top business schools, the Robins School provides a rigorous and relevant educational experience through undergraduate, graduate, and executive education programs that prepare individuals for successful and responsible business leadership. We have brought together faculty, students, staff, key employers, alumni and our Executive Advisory Council to develop a strategic plan for the Robins School. Our plan targets four key areas—high quality teaching and scholarship, learning outside of the classroom, relationships with business and government organizations, and a global worldview.
High quality teaching and scholarship. Starting with our distinctive combination of top-ranked academic quality and small class sizes, we create the best learning environment for students and support and reward outstanding teaching and research among our faculty.
Experiential learning outside of the classroom. Our intentionally-small class environment enables us to create personalized learning experiences for our students outside of the classroom and to attentively monitor or students during these learning opportunities.
Relationships with leading business and governmental organizations. The Richmond area is home to the headquarters of 11 Fortune 1000 firms—one of the highest concentrations in the U.S., one of 12 U.S. Federal Reserve Banks, and the Virginia State Capitol. Richmond also affords convenient access to our nation’s capital in Washington, D.C., and financial centers in New York and Charlotte. Our location and relationships are an asset for student learning and faculty teaching and research.
Global worldview. The University of Richmond has dedicated significant resources toward international programming for students, and the Robins School of Business has implemented partnerships with premiere universities throughout the world. Our Center for International Business Programs serves as the focal point for coordinating student opportunities abroad and we are committed to increasing faculty involvement in international programs as well.
As you explore our website, you’ll soon come to understand why the Robins School of Business provides students with the best business education in the world.
