  • Students who are interested in a career in either business or civic engagement should consider John Marshall School of Civic and Business Leadership. Our programs emphasize critical thinking and analysis. We help students learn “how to think” about alternative approaches to resolving issues, not simply “how to do” problems, although there are skill components within the curriculum. Multidisciplinary approaches to problem solving are affirmed by examining issues from a variety of perspectives.


    The courses are designed to help students develop an extensive understanding of business and students’ own roles in society. Students are exposed to many management processes and styles.  Students’ core classes feature career components such as management, finance, marketing, human resources, and organizational structure.


    Students interested in business are encouraged to pursue employment in one of John Marshall’s on-site businesses, and also to gain volunteer hours by participating in civic engagement opportunities.
