Raymond A. Mason School of Business at College of William and Mary

Why you should consider this program

The Raymond A. Mason School of Business has many contacts in the Williamsburg community to support the ongoing engagement of Coverdell Fellows in our program. Our professors work regularly with non-profit organizations that focus efforts on the underserved members of our community, often providing consulting services pro-bono for local Non-profits like the Williamsburg Health Foundation, Housing Partnerships, Inc., Literacy for Life and the United Way of Greater Williamsburg. 


Through our own efforts, and the Office of Community Engagement at W&M, internships with our partner organizations will be provided for each of the Coverdell Fellows in our MBA program. We have included letters from three of our partner Non-profit organizations agreeing to provide internships for our Fellows. Our program is global by design as we consistently achieve 40% of our student body from global countries, approximately 20+ countries represented in our program. 

We have a strong focus on leadership development and business ethics. Every incoming MBA candidate is paired with an Executive Partner coach, a mentor and advisor who will work to develop soft skills, leadership and professional development competencies.
