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.
We are investing over $1,000,000 in the School of Business to improve student success. The million dollar investment was used to develop a Peer Mentoring program, re-design courses to utilize more active, experiential, and collaborative learning, and renovate classrooms to create technology-rich learning environments.
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 a rewarding career. In your career you will experience accelerating change, increasing international interdependence, and greater reliance on both technology and human skill to solve world problems. Are you ready?
Every month the Information Systems Management (ISM) Program, within the School of Business, conducts a knowledge sharing seminar centered around technology and the businesses it enables. The series is called "Technology @ Lunch." The purpose is to increase awareness, provoke critical thinking, and enhance our understanding of the latest trends in technology.
The Fairmont State Foundation board recently approved a $100,000 gift from the estate of Wendell Hardway to establish a student investment fund that will give students in the School of Business marketable skills they could use long after graduation.
And the gift is one that the school hopes will continue to give year after year.
