Greetings and welcome to the School of Business at Virginia International University. Thank you for visiting our school. 

The mission of the School of Business at VIU is to provide a diverse body of students with the ability to succeed in a global business environment. Our faculty and staff are committed to helping students respect, value and appreciate the wealth of diversity common to the international business community.

Business is a strong area in which to pursue your degree. Research shows that domestic employment opportunities in business and financial operations are projected to grow over the next ten years. The same is true for employment opportunities in the international business arena. So there are many reasons to consider earning your degree or certificate in one of our many programs here at VIU.

VIU School of Business offers internship opportunities so you can get valuable work experience while going to class. We provide a number of support services including student tutoring, career coaching, resume and interview preparation, student clubs where you can learn from experts in the local area, as well as a number of student-centered activities for fun.
