Thank you for your interest in the Robert W. Plaster School of Business and Entrepreneurship at Lindenwood University. We take our responsibility for providing the highest quality of business education very seriously and continually re-evaluate our curricula for relevance to the modern business world.
Our business school is one of the largest in the region and offers opportunities for specialization in twelve separate business fields. But quality is much more important than quantity and here are the key ways we distinguish our business school from the others:
Credentialed faculty with real world experience. We recruit professors who bring both academic and professional achievement to the classroom. As a result, the majority of our 30 full-time faculty members have a doctoral degree in specialty fields—and significant, first-hand experience in the business world.
Strong entrepreneurial emphasis. We believe that all successful businesses must be entrepreneurial and for that reason a significant portion of our curricula is devoted to the organization, financing and management of new business ventures.
Extensive faculty-student interaction. We think the effectiveness of education is directly dependent on the quantity and quality of time our students spend with their professors. For that reason all of our classes are small to promote active student participation and all student advising is handled by full-time professors.
Early student contact with the business world. We want our students to develop meaningful contacts with the business leaders of the world before they graduate. We bring in many guest speakers to our classrooms and provide hundreds of internship and mentorship opportunities.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have about the Plaster School of Business and Entrepreneurship. We welcome visitors to our campus and would be happy to provide a tour for you to take a firsthand look.
