  • About the School:
  • When Jamestown Business College was founded in 1886, its charter called for the establishment of a school designed to qualify young men and women for office requirements at low cost to those whose inclinations and ambitions lead them to business pursuits. The college's mission remains fundamentally the same today. The college fulfills this mission by offering degree and non-degree programs that develop professional competencies for business careers and provide a general education to contribute to the intellectual and emotional growth of each student. The various programs meet student needs and the demands of the area community. The measure of the college's success will be evidenced by the success of its graduates in finding relevant employment; by the partnerships the college has forged with the business community; and by the opportunities available to students interested in pursuing additional education. Jamestown Business College is dedicated to the belief that its programs should not only prepare students to enter the workforce but also to take part fully in today's society. The college offers general education courses to assist students to think logically and critically, to improve their communication skills, to achieve self-knowledge, to work cooperatively in teams, and to develop an appreciation of life-long learning. All of these are essential skills for graduates to possess in our rapidly changing society and increaslingly complex workplace. All students are encouraged by the faculty and staff to achieve their academic and personal potential. To accomplish this, the college provides a supportive environment in which students have access to a range of academic, personal, and career services. It is also important to the college that its student body represents all segments of the diverse community that it serves, adding richness and strength to the teaching and learning process.
