About Our Business School
The Harry F. Byrd, Jr. School of Business is student-centered with a focus on individualized business education driven by entrepreneurial thinking, global understanding and ethical practice. In today’s fast-paced, changeable and global marketplace, entrepreneurship is not a career path, it’s a way of doing business. That’s why we’ll provide you with the skills to innovate and the personalized attention to cultivate and exchange ideas and information in ways that will help you build a career path and become a valued member of any organization.
As a student of Shenandoah’s Byrd School of Business, you’ll learn in small classes with personalized attention from faculty with real-world experience, and design a customizable program of study to launch a successful career in your area of interest. You’ll explore the world through innovative global initiatives, participate in diverse student activities and gain hands-on experience through experiential learning opportunities beyond the classroom. Most importantly, you’ll earn a degree from a top-rated, AACSB accredited program with a reputation for business excellence.
Shenandoah University’s Harry F. Byrd, Jr. School of Business is a vibrant and diverse community of scholars, educators, practitioners and lifelong learners; and our mission -- to become successful, principled leaders with a global perspective -- unifies us.
Today’s lightning-fast business environment is more complex and unpredictable than ever before. To overcome increasingly multifaceted challenges, business leaders require skills and knowledge from a wide range of traditionally segregated fields. The Byrd School’s individualized Bachelor of Business Administration (IBBA), along with its sport management, entrepreneurship and health care management majors, are cutting-edge initiatives that unite academic divisions. They encourage the cross-pollination of ideas in order to better train students to recognize and capture opportunities in a world where disciplines intersect and industries rapidly change.
We will work with you to unleash your entrepreneurial potential -- whether that potential is used to start your own business or apply innovative approaches to help transform an existing organization. Simply put, we will work with you to help you launch our success story.

Life at the Business School
Business today is a global enterprise, and you will offer more value to future employers if you have study-abroad experience. Visit other cultures and learn different business practices firsthand through a variety of study-abroad opportunities that range from an entire semester to several weeks during the summer, to 10 days over spring break.
Internships provide a hands-on bridge for students to enter the business world. Each year, students intern at local and regional organizations, including the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, M&H Plastics, Rubbermaid, General Electric, BB&T and the Shenandoah Arts Council.
