The Lewis College of Business at West Virginia’s Marshall University emphasizes bringing business theory into real-world applications so students can adapt to the ever-changing needs of the global market. The administration is “always trying to make the school better,” and to that end, Lewis just started an online MBA program that is even more affordable than the classroom-based program. This local college has “an excellent business program and academic support systems” for all students, who must complete a core curriculum that covers a range of business fundamentals. Following this, they may customize their degree by taking two electives in one functional concentration area: Accounting, Finance, Healthcare Administration, Human Resource Management, Management, and Marketing. Additionally, the BB&T Center for the Advancement of American Capitalism promotes awareness and understanding of capitalism in today’s market economy within the region and encourages entrepreneurship among Lewis College of Business students via angel investments and support for ambitious, catalytic projects that help students develop twenty-first century business skill sets.

The school “understands that many students work full-time jobs and schedules classes to accommodate those jobs,” and classes are offered in the evenings at Marshall’s main campus in Huntington or online, with a few courses available at the school’s South Charleston campus. Professors here are mostly professionals within their fields, and try to bring their experience into their teaching and use current issues as examples during class; they “are always wanting to make their classes better by student feedback.” All professors have an open door policy and “will usually get back with you quickly even if it is a weekend to answer questions,” and “will even try to meet with you if you can’t make it to office hours or even help after class.”
