St. John’s University’s business school, the Peter J. Tobin College of Business, enjoys quite a reputation, and deservedly so. Many students say they applied to the school on its “good reputation,” in addition to many unique perks offered throughout its program. One of the main academic draws to the school is its Risk Management Program. The School of Risk Management is housed in a state-of-the-art building located in the East Village, Manhattan. In addition to their “very strong curriculum,” the School of Risk Management building also houses the Center for Professional Education, the division that provides custom and non-degree granting programs, the Insurance Hall of Fame and the world famous Kathryn and Shelby Cullom Davis Library.

One of the true hallmarks of any good university includes its professors, and St. John’s follows this precedent. While there are some teachers at SJU that the occasional student identifies as, “not helpful and stressful,” the vast majority of professors here “convey a true commitment and investment in the university and the students,” and provide “excellent lectures.” Many teachers are “experienced in the fields they teach or oversee,” which allows them to “provide the latest information” from the business world and “apply [the] concepts in class [to] real world examples.” This kind of teaching provides “valuable insight” into the business world, which is useful since most students either work full-time or are looking for a job. By offering real world experience, instead of only tests, the school demonstrates that it is “more focused on [the] growth of its students than it is on what grade they get at the end of the year.”
