Probably the worst business school in the state. Been enrolled here for a year and half in the business program. Impossible to even enroll for the courses you need. One example is the business foundations pre requisite. Every student is required to take a course called Business Foundations. However, the university only teaches ONE of these classes per semester with space for 150 students. So you literally can't graduate until you take this course and they don't make it available for even 50% of the business school populations. Meanwhile, they have (not an exageration) 23 classes of the Speaking Presentations classes. Those courses all only have 6-8 students enrolled in them each, yet there are 23 courses available. I wish I had never enrolled at VCU Business so I am writing this to warn others. You literally just won't be able to graduate on time because they don't have the class space and yet they still take your $28,000 a year. Last point to bring up is the advisors in the Business School at VCU, probably the worst in the country. Good luck getting one to so much as return an email let alone ever see them. If I had a time machine I would go and enroll at literally any other University but now I'm stuck at VCU because i'm invested in it and it's too late for me to switch because guess what, NOTHING in the business foundations program transfers over elsewhere. You don't even get an associates through the program so you're stuck riding four years with VCU or loosing your money and time trying to switch to anywhere else.
