Welcome to the Fairmont State University School of Business.  The School of Business aspires to be the preeminent regional business school in West Virginia and the surrounding area, recognized for academic excellence and for contributing to the overall development of our region and broader environment.  We are committed to delivering a quality business education through effective teaching in a caring learning environment that is responsive to the shared needs of students, employers, and the community. 

As you begin your search for the right concentration or program of study, join us on a quick tour, not of literal buildings, brick and mortar, but of the many possibilities awaiting you.  This tour is about options.  It is about you and your preparation for life in a new century — one defined by accelerating change, increasing international interdependence, and a greater reliance on both technology and human skill to solve world problems.

Students enrolled in any of the business program options are required to develop critical thinking skills and to express themselves clearly in both oral and written communication.  These skills are the foundation of a successful career.  There is a saying that “knowledge breeds confidence and confidence breeds success and a belief in one’s self.”  The School of Business faculty fully embraces this concept of success and strives to foster it in all our graduates.  Are YOU ready for the challenge?
