Living in Williamsburg and cohort
Living in Williamsburg
The Raymond A. Mason School of Business MSBA program will no doubt be a tough academic challenge, but it isn't all about coding and analysis.
The historic William & Mary campus takes visitors through more than 300 years of history and tradition. Our campus is located in the heart of Williamsburg, where you will find students reading, playing Ultimate Frisbee in the Sunken Gardens, running through the scenic trails surrounding Lake Matoaka, kayaking on the James River, or walking next to the horse carriages in Colonial Williamsburg.
At night, you can walk across the street to meet your classmates at a cafe or head to Virginia Beach, Norfolk, or Richmond, each about a 45-minute drive away. We are just over two hours from Washington, D.C., and half a day from New York City.
Yes, the MSBA program will be demanding. Yes, you'll spend a lot of time coding and running models and simulations while at the same time preparing to interview and network with visiting executives. You will also make lifelong friendships and have more fun than you imagined.
Our goal is to cultivate a cohort with a wide set of backgrounds to enhance your educational and personal development experience. Typically, 25% of our students are William & Mary alumni, and 30% of our students are international. Students come to our program from universities all over the greater United States and more broadly, nearly every continent in the world. 25% of our students come from STEM backgrounds, while our remaining students typically majored in business, economics, or the liberal arts. With this cohort, you'll be exposed to a global perspective, new cultures, and diverse perspectives.
