R–Business Learning Community Application

R–Business will explore all concentration areas, including accounting, finance, economics, marketing, management, and internatoinal business. As Richmond students are not permitted to declare a major in business until their sophomore year, R–Business will show and help prepare students for many aspects or opportunities that the Robins School of Business has to offer. Through interactive programs, lectures, and events designed to support and develop necessary business skills, members of the R–Business learning community will engage with the field of business. Students will not only be able to meet and interact with other like-minded students, but also have direct connections with faculty.

Please note that this community is non-residential, so students can participate in other living-learning communities, and participate in R–Business.

The application deadline is August 1, 2019.
