Dean's Welcome

I would like to welcome you to the Robert Morris University School of Business website. Our university was founded in 1921 as the Pittsburgh School of Accountancy and subsequently became the Robert Morris School of Business. Decades later, we became Robert Morris University offering a wide variety of degrees in many fields. Our long-standing heritage in producing high quality accounting and business professionals inspires the faculty, staff, administration and students of the RMU School of Business to continue this legacy. The most successful alumni of our university studied business while at RMU. We are very proud of the accomplishments of our many alumni.

The School of Business has recently made great strides academically, professionally, and operationally and extended our prestigious AACSB International accreditation for another five years.  This accreditation places us among the top 5% of business schools in the world and assures that our School of Business delivers high quality business education and is committed to continuous improvement in all its programs.  Our faculty, staff and administration are all dedicated to providing our students with the education, mentoring, and engagement necessary for success in the global marketplace as professionals and responsible citizens. Our students enjoy a high quality educational experience with a personal touch.  In addition, they are well-prepared for their future professional careers through an entire week of activities where they interact with and gain perspective from business professionals, called Business Week.   

Another key aspect of the School of Business that greatly benefits students is our new state-of-the-art Business Building equipped with the latest business technology. This includes the PNC Business Center with its trading room and Bloomberg technology, the U.S. Steel Videoconferencing and Technology Resource Center with its Cisco Telepresence system, and the ATI Center with its interactive market wall.  These resources allow our students to have access to and become proficient in the latest technologies as they prepare for careers in business.

The RMU School of Business is committed to academic excellence and student success, and we look forward to working with you, whether you are a prospective or current student, an alumnus, or a member of the business community. Together we can continue the legacy of high quality business education and enhanced business opportunities and success for all our constituents.
