If you’re interested in pursuing a career in business, you’re likely looking for a reputable program that will adequately prepare you for success. As you study in beautiful Rome, Italy, you can develop a profound understanding of the business world from a highly qualified, international faculty. Our students graduate fully prepared to be ethical, compassionate, and innovative leaders in the field.

Founded in 2018, the Frank J. Guarini School of Business results from a generous donation from its namesake. Having served in the military, becoming a distinguished attorney and, eventually, a New Jersey congressman, service has always been at the center of Frank J. Guarini’s career. His interest in education led him to the founding of several centers and institutes, and we’re proud to have him as the namesake of our school. Our business programs reflect his legacy of charitability, service, and global citizenship. Keep reading to learn about the mission, curriculum, and accreditation of the Frank J.

How Our Business School Supports Student Success

The Frank J. Guarini School of Business is home to the Department of Business Administration, the Department of Economics, the Institute for Entrepreneurship, and the Center for Continuing and Professional Education. We foster synergies between these departments through engaging learning experiences like the opportunity to work on real-life business consulting projects, guest lectures, access to our innovation studio, mentorship programs, and participation in the JCU Business Society. Small class sizes allow students in upper-level courses to learn through class discussions and teamwork. Small classes also allow for great interaction between professors and students so that the individual learning needs of each student are prioritized. You will develop a profound understanding of business theory and benefit from plenty of opportunities to put your knowledge into practice.

The Value of an AACSB Accredited Business School 

The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) aims to challenge business educators to pursue excellence and continuous improvement in their programs. It is a prestigious accreditation that only 6% of business schools receive. In 2022, the Frank J. Guarini School of Business was awarded this accreditation, making history as the first American university in Europe to achieve this accomplishment. By attending an AACSB accredited business school, you can be certain that you are receiving a high-quality education from an institution committed to constantly improving its methods of instruction. There is so much to gain from a business education here at JCU. If you see yourself pursuing a dynamic career in business, we invite you to join the Frank J. Guarini School of Business.
