Our program builds on a strong liberal arts core with professional training in business administration. We’re focused on preparing you for a career in a variety of business organizations, and we network extensively to make that happen. Our students engage with the local business community through lecture series, workshops, visits, and internships. In many courses, student projects involve problem-solving and services for real-world business organizations. Our faculty members bring extensive business experience to the classroom, creating a unique approach to teaching that combines the theoretical with the practical. Advanced business degree classes are typically small, providing significant personal attention and one-on-one time with professors. Additionally, all students complete an internship in their field of focus.
