At John Cabot University, we pride ourselves on providing a cutting-edge education that prepares our students for the dynamic world of business in the heart of Rome's historic and magical city.

The prestigious Frank J. Guarani School of Business has forged a well-earned reputation as a hallmark of progressive education, dedicated to cultivating a new generation of business leaders equipped with the knowledge, ethics, and innovative spirit to navigate the global market.


A Keen Emphasis on Innovation and Inclusivity

Since becoming a JCU Board of Trustees member in 1995, Mr. Guarini has consistently demonstrated steadfast support for the university. Founded in 2018, the Guarini School of Business merges the strengths and rigor of an American liberal arts education with a comprehensive business curriculum. This unique educational model broadens students' intellectual horizons and encourages an environment where ethical considerations and compassion are paramount.

Our international faculty, renowned for their academic credentials and dedication to student success, are instrumental in creating a learning atmosphere that encourages the vision of a business world marked by inclusivity and innovation.

The School of Business fulfills its purpose by fostering and enhancing collaborative efforts between the specific goals of the Department of Business Administration, the Department of Economics, the Institute for Entrepreneurship, and the Center for Graduate Studies.

Such a comprehensive, well-rounded education sets a solid foundation that propels our graduates to future career success, as JCU alumnus Anastasiia Shmatina can attest. Anastasiia completed her studies at John Cabot University in 2018, earning a degree in Business Administration with a minor in Marketing. Immediately following her graduation, she secured an internship in business development at Messagenius, a start-up in Rome that created an app for instant and secure messaging for different organizations, thanks to the Career Fair at JCU. Her responsibilities included revamping the company's brand image, and within two months, she was offered a permanent position.

Focus On Experiential Learning After Attending University in Rome

The core mission of the Frank J. Guarini School of Business is to excel in delivering a business education that is deeply rooted in the University’s liberal arts tradition and international setting. We aim to nurture ethical, compassionate, and innovative business leaders ready to contribute significantly in an interconnected and complex world. This necessitates a hands-on approach that allows you to internalize what you learn in business school by putting it into practice.

Beyond the classroom, our students have ample opportunities to develop their professional skills through consulting projects for established companies and internships facilitated by our Center for Career Services. Our close collaboration with the JCU Institute for Entrepreneurship prepares students for successful careers in entrepreneurship or start-ups and an entrepreneurial mindset through coursework, networking, and participation in international competitions.

AACSB Accreditation for Ample Global Opportunities

In 2022, the Guarini School of Business achieved a significant milestone by receiving accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). This accreditation is a testament to our commitment to excellence and continuous improvement in our business programs. Being among the elite 6% of business schools worldwide—and the first American university in Europe—to earn this distinction, John Cabot University sets a new standard in business education.

What sets our world-class university in Rome apart is the quality of our education and the unique opportunities we offer. Our AACSB accreditation opens several doors to global opportunities for our students. For one thing, it makes it possible for our students to pursue graduate studies at globally renowned institutions such as the Imperial College London, London School of Economics, Copenhagen Business School, and others. Beyond this, graduates are well-equipped to pursue various career paths.
