Are you CEO material? At VCU you can sign up for CEO Class for an in-depth question and answer session with top executives at every class.

When you’re not learning from the head honchos, the business program at VCU offers management and entrepreneurship practices taught by award-winning professors and successful business leaders.

Just steps away from classrooms sits the Capital Markets Center student workspace, its authentic Wall Street trading room atmosphere complete with a stock ticker and 30-foot video projection wall. The university has 25 organizations and honor societies associated with business programs but it also encourages students to collaborate across departments. In the VCU da Vinci Center, business students work with their arts, engineering, and humanities peers to come up with innovative products and marketing techniques for major companies, like new guitar case concepts for TKL Products Corp. and health product packaging for Pfizer pharmaceutical company.
