John L. Grove College of Business

Message from the Dean:
The John L. Grove College of Business at Shippensburg University has developed an excellent reputation for providing a high-quality and affordable educational experience.  We have a highly qualified faculty who is connected to the business community through applied research, service, and by engaging students in scholarship and internship activities.  The John L. Grove College of Business through the Small Business Development Center and the Entrepreneurial Leadership Center provides critical services necessary for economic growth and development in addition to providing students the opportunity for experiential learning.  We are committed to providing business students with the skills necessary to succeed in a very competitive global environment. 

During the past several years, we have expanded our programming, particularly at the MBA level, to meet the educational needs throughout our service region. In all of our programs, we strive for excellence and have an outstanding track record to prove it: 30 years of Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International) accreditation, 40 years as a College of Business, and 75 years of teaching business in South Central Pennsylvania.

However, in an era of declining public support and rising costs, the financial support from alumni, friends, and businesses, are critical in sustaining our high quality business programs.  You are encouraged to invest in the students and faculty of Shippensburg University’s John L. Grove College of Business so we can help to ensure our graduates remain well-prepared to take on the business challenges of today and tomorrow in this region and beyond.
