Big enough to matter. Small enough to care.
A nationally ranked, doctoral-granting university, Robert Morris University (RMU) has the professionally focused degree programs and personal attention that are the gateway to great careers and great lives.
Jordan Frazier is making the most of his RMU education. Not only did he triple-major in Accounting, Economics, and Finance in the School of Business, Jordan quadruple-interned—twice at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Pittsburgh, once at KPMG, and once at a local health care technology start-up working directly with the CFO. Add that to his perfect 4.0 GPA and it’s no wonder Jordan already had an offer waiting when he graduated: audit associate, the job he was shooting for since freshman year.
Amanda Ifill is also getting the most out of her time at RMU. She transferred to the School of Nursing and Health Sciences, attracted by its individualized focus and innovative programs. Now she’s on the dean’s list, a leader in her sorority, and a member of the dance team. Amanda knows her dream of becoming a nurse is well within reach, and she’s enjoying the ride too.
Gallup studies show RMU students are more likely than the average US college graduate to say that college prepared them for life after graduation. They are also more likely to have a job offer waiting when they graduate, more likely to have higher salaries, and are more engaged in their careers and thriving in their personal well-being. And with RMU’s Student Engagement Transcript, graduates have a record of their leadership and other experiences outside the classroom to show future employers.
On 230 acres in suburban Pittsburgh, RMU is a vibrant living and learning community ranked as a top national university by U.S. News & World Report. Eighty-five percent of freshmen live on campus, where they can participate in more than 100 activities and organizations outside the classroom. With 16 teams, including men’s and women’s ice hockey, RMU has a winning tradition in NCAA Division I, so students and alumni can cheer on the Colonials throughout the year.
Pittsburgh is a hot city. It’s also compact, cultured, safe, neighborly, historic, and very affordable. You’ll find exciting professional sports, all kinds of concerts, great museums and parks, and a thriving and varied nightlife. And the region is rich with outdoor activities, including skiing, hiking, sailing, whitewater rafting, and a 300-mile bike trail that stretches all the way to Washington, DC.
Private college quality
RMU is a teaching-centered institution, with a 15:1 student-faculty ratio and small classes taught by professors, not graduate students. Since 2010, the University has built new academic buildings for three of its five schools and fully renovated the other two. Business students learn at a simulated stock trading floor and fully equipped Bloomberg terminal labs. Nursing students check the vitals of high-tech manikins in the new simulation center.
You can work out at the new Student Recreation and Fitness Center, completely stocked with the latest exercise equipment. And the UPMC Events Center is the new home of Colonials basketball and volleyball as well as a major event venue for concerts, career expos, and commencement.
