Exceptional Opportunity: A Great School of the Princeton Review
Roanoke College's Department of Business and Economics strives to provide Roanoke students with a complete understanding of the knowledge, skills, and opportunities they will need to be successful in a professional setting for the rest of their lives. This was recently reflected in the 2011 Princeton Review, which named Roanoke College among their list of the top 36 great schools for business/finance majors. The review was quick to quote the perspective of Roanoke College's President Maxey, "The real attraction for students is what happens in the classroom. Roanoke's fine faculty members create a learning environment for our students that is second to none."
As the most popular degree program at the College, business administration offers Roanoke students a solid background in the major functional areas of business. This includes studies in accounting, management, marketing, and finance in order to help Roanoke students begin a competitive and professional career.
Our mission is to educate Roanoke students in how to draw upon the art and science of economics to address these and other critical issues, and thereby prepare them for responsible lives of learning, service, and leadership.

On March 12th and 13th, Roanoke College seniors Samantha Sterba ‘09 and Virginia Hopkins ‘09 accompanied Dr. Alice L. Kassens to the 2009 Virginia Association of Economists (VAE) 36th Annual Meeting. This trip really began, however, during the fall semester of 2008.
