The Robert W. Plaster School of Business (PSB) offers a wide range of majors, minors, and certifications to our students so they may distinguish themselves from others in the business world. Students may choose from one of our eight majors, add a concentration in entrepreneurship, and select one of our many minors offered to both BSBA degree seeking and Non-BSBA degree seeking students. Our business school faculty emphasize a personal approach so students may get to know their instructors while receiving quality education. Opportunities to get involved with PSB, gain professional development, and connect with the community are endless with our student organizations. PSB also has great community resources for local business to start, grow, and develop in the Joplin community.
