Welcome! Shepherd University and the Department of Business Administration and Family and Consumer Sciences (FACS) are located in the Shenandoah Valley, on the banks of the Potomac River, in historic Shepherdstown, West Virginia. The oldest town in the state, Shepherdstown is a quaint university community with the town and campus combining to offer a unique learning environment.
Our students come from all backgrounds and locations and are invited to choose from a variety of programs housed within our department. We offer a major in Business Administration with options in general business, marketing, management, entrepreneurship, and financial planning (all accredited). Our financial planning program is certified by the CFP Board. Or perhaps you are interested in one of several business minors. Family and Consumer Sciences (FACS) offers majors in FACS and FACS Education as well as several minors as, for example, in Consumer Economics and Nutrition. Our faculty bring both theoretical and practical expertise to their classrooms, and their aim is to mentor and guide you into fulfilling careers. Welcome!
Shepherd University has received specialized accreditation for its business programs through the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE) located at 11374 Strang Line Road in Lenexa, Kansas, USA. The business programs in the following degrees are accredited by the IACBE: Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration with concentrations in general business, entrepreneurship, financial planning, management, and marketing; and Master of Business Administration degree, with concentrations in general business, accounting, health administration, public management, and sport management.
It is an exciting time to be a Business Administration major at Shepherd University as we become one of three founding academic departments incorporated into Shepherd University’s new School of Business starting in July 2017. The Shepherd Business School (SBS) will incorporate the Accounting and Economics & Finance departments and have major oversight and responsibility for the MBA program. The campaign to see this vision to fruition – Business 2020 – is ongoing.
