R Business Learning Community
Richmond College, in partnership with the Robins School of Business, invites students to join a non-residential based, learning community for first-year men and women that will explore the many facets of today’s business world.
R Business will explore all concentration areas, including accounting, finance, economics, marketing, management, and international business. As Richmond students are not allowed to declare a major in business until after their first year, R Business will show and help prepare students for the many aspects and opportunities that the nationally ranked Robins School has to offer. Through interactive programs, lectures, and events designed to support and develop necessary business skills, members of R Business will be exposed to an outstanding precursor to their chosen path in the business world at Richmond and beyond.
Participants will not only be able to interact with other motivated business-minded students, but will also have the advantage of direct connections to members of the Robins School faculty.
R Business differs from living-learning communities, because students will be able to live in any first-year residence hall while enjoying the benefits of this one of a kind program at Richmond. Space is available for 20–30 students in this inaugural year of the program. Applications are due by July 1, 2013.
