Pillars of Success

Launched as the School of Administrative Studies in 1972, the College of Business was renamed the William G. Rohrer College of Business in June of 2005 following a $10-million gift from the William G. Rohrer Charitable Foundation.

The Rohrer College of Business (RCB) has approximately 2,000 undergraduate students and 160 masters level students. Our vision and mission align with the broader institution’s four pillars, drive key RCB strategies and decisions, and help to differentiate us.  The RCB builds student success using 4 pillars of success. These pillars help structure student education and professional growth through Strong Academics, Leadership Opportunities, Project Based Learning, and Internships.

The RCB is one of a handful of business schools in the nation to hold accreditations from AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) for its business programs and a separate accreditation from the Computing Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET) for its MIS program. To achieve this prestigious accreditation, the business program successfully demonstrated a wide range of quality standards relating to curriculum, faculty resources, admissions, degree requirements, facilities, financial resources, and intellectual climate.

Rowan's Business Program provides a general, well-rounded education in business administration and emphasizes development of set skills such as communication, computing and teamwork. The business programs have three key components: general education, business administration core curriculum, and an in-depth specialization.

Our business program attracts high-achieving students whose SAT I scores are above the Rowan mean. In addition to the 45 full-time faculty, adjunct professors enrich selected courses with practical, hands-on knowledge in their areas of expertise.

Our business curriculum prepares students for initial job placement, growth into managerial positions and graduate study. We strongly encourage you to enroll in internships and to take part-time professional jobs while in college, all of which add to your marketability when you start your job search.
