“Good School”
March 2018CURRENT STUDENT
Uppers

diversity, people are friendly, professors are willing to help students to success, the campus is growing

Downers

too many parties around. local people are complaining to school administration.

Comments

this school is the type of school that studies hard and plays hard. Students are very smart and they are willing to help others in need. Community involvements are great. They have a broad study-abroad program you can choose from.

“Solid undergrad business program - Growing out of regional focus”
February 2018FORMER STUDENT
Uppers

The College of Business at JMU provides a solid business foundation through the "COB 300" program, in which students are placed in a cohort that takes Finance, Management, Operations, and Marketing together, while simultaneously working on a business plan. Professors are accessible and care about students for the most part.

Downers

Outside of the Big-4, recruitment in the COB is lackluster. There is very little on-campus recruiting for investment banking, though this is improving as more alumni move up the ranks on Wall Street. The home of the COB, Zane Showker Hall is a very cramped, and was designed for a much smaller student population, but it is slated to be replaced in the next few years with a state of the art facility.

Comments

JMU will provide you with a great experience, and a quality education, though students pursuing Wall Street careers may be frustrated by lack of on-campus recruiting options.
