One of few AACSB-accredited undergraduate programs
All business schools are not alike.
The Sigmund Weis School of Business is a place where students are mentored and leaders are cultivated. Here, collaboration, achievement and hard work are rewarded. Success comes from a dynamic business curriculum that is built on a solid liberal arts foundation.
Our program is not easy, but it is highly valued. You learn to think clearly and communicate effectively, to embrace other cultures through study abroad experiences, and to adapt to a rapidly changing global economy.
Because you will develop a complete understanding of the full scope of business activities, you'll be better prepared to tackle the jobs of the future.
As one of the few undergraduate business programs in the world to earn AACSB accreditation, we pride ourselves on our highly qualified faculty, rigorous curriculum, and continuous assessment and improvement processes.
A degree from the Sigmund Weis School of Business provides a great return on your investment.
- We are among the top 5% of business programs worldwide—and one of less than a dozen residential liberal arts colleges—to have earned AACSB accreditation, a marker of excellence. Other AACSB schools include Harvard Business School and the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School.
- 98% of business students are employed or in graduate school within six months of graduation.
Small class sizes ensure students receive more personalized attention and more opportunities for professional growth.
- 92% of our faculty have a Ph.D. or terminal degree. Most also have real-world business experience.
- 100% of first-year students take Global Business Perspectives, a team-based, overview course that culminates in formal presentations to business executives.
- 100% of business majors study away from campus for a minimum of two weeks. The GO London program, led by business school faculty, is a popular choice.
- 91% of our accounting majors complete the 150 credit hours required for the CPA examination within four years.
- Approximately one-third of accounting majors have job offers before they begin their senior year.
- Alumni from renowned companies such as Goldman Sachs, Prudential, Fidelity, JPMorgan Chase and Merck & Co. visit campus regularly to judge student presentations, speak as guest lecturers, and seek out prospective interns and employees.
- We have 12 Bloomberg terminals in our investment laboratory. These computer terminals give students unique experience with real-world tools and an advantage when competing for their first job out of college.
Experts agree that in today's complex, constantly changing world, graduates need more than simply a college degree. They must acquire a set of skills that will help them enhance their personal and professional lives throughout their entire career.
Susquehanna is one of only three schools in the country to have students finish in the top 25 of the Fall 2015 ETF Global Portfolio Challenge.
GDA Integrated Services, a marketing and research firm specializing in higher education, reports the following:
More than 75% of employers say strong thinking and reasoning skills are very important in an employee who graduated from college.
66% of employers seek college graduates who write and speak effectively.
63% look for college graduates who demonstrate problem-solving skills.
One out of three say an employee must have an interest in exploring new ideas.
Furthermore, Liberal Education and America's Promise (LEAP) confirms that a liberal arts education that is integrated with all fields of endeavor - from business and professional programs to the arts and sciences - provides the foundation that is necessary for students to expand their horizons, build an understanding of a wider world, hone analytical and communications skills, and foster responsibilities beyond self.
Susquehanna University and the Sigmund Weis School of Business are committed to producing well-rounded graduates who have these skills and are prepared to achieve, lead, and serve in the 21st century.

I'm proud to be the dean of an AACSB accredited business program and working with faculty who are committed to student success, both in and outside of the classroom.
Unlike most programs, ours builds upon the foundations provided by a robust liberal arts education that teaches students critical thinking and communications skills, and incorporates global business experiences as well as a variety of opportunities for leadership and personal growth.
Our curriculum begins with a course that integrates the business disciplines and culminates in student team presentations before visiting executives who serve as judges. Students not only attain the knowledge to be successful, they begin developing real-world skills and networking techniques during their first year on campus.
With a 98% placement rate within six months of graduation, our graduates clearly earn the education that employers value. We don't prepare students for jobs, we groom them for fulfilling lives in an ever-changing, dynamic global environment.
Students in the Sigmund Weis School of Business are scholars who are engaged in their local and global communities. They are also athletes, musicians, volunteers and peer mentors.
As a result of their education in the Sigmund Weis School of Business, they become graduates who are prepared to meet the challenges-and reap the rewards-of a successful career.

Inspiration and connections were the focus of the first Sigmund Weis School of Business Women's Symposium.
The now-annual event began in earnest in March of 2015 and put 20 female business students in the same room as successful businesswomen.
