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.
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.
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.
