Though the student body of the entire campus is only approximately 1,500 students, business majors will still find plenty of ways to get involved. Students are encouraged to complete an internship. Business students can also enhance their experience by joining the Business Club or the Student Government Association. Students can also study abroad in Rome through the partnership with Assumption College, in Ireland at Sacred Heart University, or anywhere in the world through the affiliation with the American Institute for Study. There are also many local charities for students to volunteer with. Guest speakers are also invited to campus to share their professional and personal experiences.
Undergraduate students who are unable to attend classes on campus due to distance or work schedules may earn a convenient, fully online degree in Computer Information Systems or Finance, which are both growing career fields.
Graduate students can earn an MS in Accounting, MA in Leadership, MS in Management and Organizational Leadership, or MBA in a “Flex” format, which allows students to decide on a class-by-class basis if they’d like to enroll online or in a blended course. For the blended courses, students will experience a combination of one class per week on-campus and one online assignment per week. Online courses will feature two weekly lectures, which can be viewed from the comfort of the student’s home.
