World-Class Accredited Degree Readies Aspiring Execs

Our AACSB International-accredited Sigmund Weis School of Business, combined with a comprehensive liberal arts education, make this the perfect place to study management.

Fewer than five percent of business schools earn this top honor from AACSB, and we're one of the few undergraduate private institutions in the nation to achieve it.

For you, it means top companies will recognize the high quality of your degree, often offering higher, more competitive salaries. Ninety-eight percent of our graduates are employed within six months, many at Fortune 500 companies like Goldman Sachs & Co., Prudential, Fidelity, JPMorgan Chase and Merck & Co.

From your very first semester, you'll get important hands-on experience. In Global Business Perspectives, you'll work on a consulting project to develop recommendations to improve the profitability of a major corporation, such as Netflix, Burberry or Under Armour. Then you'll pitch your plan to real-life business executives.

Your education won't just take place on campus—or even within the United States. You will go places around the world. Consider our award-winning study abroad programs, such as our popular Global Opportunities in London, where you'll live, study and intern with other business students in the heart of this bustling city. You'll gain intercultural competency and a level of confidence that you can succeed wherever you land in your career path.

Because our bold curriculum is rooted in the liberal arts, you'll develop all of these essential skills like writing, teamwork, presentations, critical thinking, interpersonal relationships and leadership

Interested in other areas of business too? It's easy to add a minor in finance, economics, marketing or one of our interdisciplinary minors for a better understanding of important topics in today's world.
