Dean: School of Business

A Message From the Dean

Pam Horwitz, Ph.D.

Welcome to the John E. Simon School of Business.

The John E. Simon School of Business faculty and staff pride themselves on being student-centered. We want to work with you to provide a high quality business learning environment in a flexible manner.  Our goal is to create learning opportunities that enable you to interact with businesses in the region and facilitate internships, co-operative education experiences, joint business and classroom research projects, site visits, and corporate guest speakers.  Maryville’s location at the heart of the Maryville Centre Business Community makes this interaction especially convenient.

Immerse yourself in a Maryville classroom where you will find yourself  surrounded by students from a variety of backgrounds.  Work with highly credentialed professors who are both academically qualified and experienced in the world of profit and not-for profit organizations and understand the need to ‘apply’ theory to practical business decisions.   We know that you will be challenged by the use of information technology in business, so special attention is given to the impact of e-commerce and project management skills.  Your future career success depends upon your ability to embrace change, and our Maryville’s School of Business curriculum is designed to blend business concepts and theory with real world applications.  You will take courses that provide the skills and tools necessary to compete in today’s dynamic business environment.

Maryville’s flexible course system offers day, evening, and weekend course options at both the undergraduate and graduate level.  The School’s curriculum is designed to meet the demands of both traditional and working student populations and provides the opportunity to customize your education experience by participating in service learning projects, study abroad programs or corporate internships.

The John E. Simon School of Business appreciates your interest in Maryville.  Our goal is to provide you with the most responsive, individualized, and interactive educational environment as a foundation for lifelong learning and a highly successful career.
