Department of Business Administration
Welcome to the Department of Business Administration at John Cabot University in Rome, where academic excellence and international business experience are brought together to prepare tomorrow's socially responsible business leaders. We provide first-class business education in the liberal arts context, which prepares our students for successfully dealing with the many global challenges our societies are facing today. Our unique location in Rome allows students to take advantage of our strong network with established corporations, start-ups, non-profit organizations and other stakeholders to develop a broader understanding of the importance and meaning of business know-how and experience firsthand a contemporary world of business by becoming part of this network. We offer Bachelor of Arts degrees in Business Administration, International Business, and Marketing, as well as minors in Business Administration, Entrepreneurship, and Marketing.
Our faculty members are successful business people, entrepreneurs and scholars who have prepared for their careers at the world's most prestigious universities (including U.C. Berkeley, Harvard, London Business School, London School of Economics, LUISS, and Oxford). Our professors come from and have worked in the Americas, Europe and Asia, in a wide range of industries and managerial positions. We strive to bring this diverse, international experience into the classroom, punctuating business theory with real life, hands-on experience. An average class size of 15:1 enables us to pursue our student-centered learning philosophy and encourage individual growth and group interaction—the wide variety of teaching methods we use includes case studies, simulations, special projects, and more.

John Cabot University’s Frank J. Guarini School of Business received accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) in 2022. The fundamental purpose of AACSB accreditation is to challenge business educators to pursue excellence and continuous improvement in their business programs. John Cabot is one of fewer than 6% of business schools worldwide, and the first American university in Europe to have earned this prestigious accreditation.
Our students are dynamic, talented people coming from Italy, the United States, and 70+
other countries, who thoroughly enjoy the challenges and rewards of studying in a
highly diverse setting where they work with peers from different cultures, religions,
and approaches. When students leave John Cabot, they are ready to start their careers
at prestigious institutions or to pursue further education in graduate programs, for
instance, at the London School of Economics, Imperial College London, Cass Business
School, HEC Paris, ESCP Business School, Grenoble École de Management, MIP Politecnico
di Milano, Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna, Copenhagen Business School, Stockholm Business
School, Yonsei University, and Purdue University, among others.
