The School of Business and Accounting at Monroe College believes that successful leaders in all fields of business have to have incredible leadership, decision-making, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills. This is why they hire highly experienced and well qualified former executives and certified accountants to share their insight and expertise as they instruct and guide students through the rigorous curriculum. The excellence of the programs has earned the ACBSP accreditation.
The educational process begins in the classroom. Undergraduate students can pursue an Associates in Accounting, Business Administration, or Sports Management. They can also obtain a Bachelors in Accounting, General Business, Business Management, or Sports Management. Graduate degrees consist of a Masters in Accounting and a Masters in Business Administration. The MBA offers concentrations in Marketing, Hospitality, Information Technology, Business Analytics, International Business, Finance, Healthcare Management, Human Resources, Accounting, and Supply Chain Management. Due to the scholarly accomplishments of the business program, the College received the honor of being inducted into the Delta Mu Delta Honor Society.
To help carry any financial burden a higher education brings, Monroe offers a variety of financial aid options for those students studying business. Scholarships based on merit and scholarships for incoming freshmen, transfer, online, international, athletic, graduate, and band students are available. Students can also participate in the Work-Study Program to receive financial assistance from working a job.
Since the college centers everything around the student, the Student Success Center provides a variety of resources to assist in academic success, including peer mentoring, professional tutoring, and workshops. The Office of Student Services offers counselors that help with class challenges, career preparation, career goals, campus orientation, and finding internships and co-op opportunities. Completing an internship is a requirement before graduation to gain the necessary experience in preparation for a career. To build leadership and social skills and experience learning, business students can participate in student organizations like the Association of Latino Professional for America (ALPFA), Career Ambassadors Club, Club for Entrepreneurial Opportunities (CEO), Information Technology Student Association Club (ITSA), and the National Association of Black Accountants (NABA).
Another great way for students to experience learning is through the programs and services offered by The Small Business Development Center. Here, students learn about small businesses and assist clients in discovering and implementing the necessary steps needed to make their business successful. This Center recently opened the Center for Entrepreneurial Excellence. This is where students, along with local business entrepreneurs, can find assistance in their entrepreneurial ventures through consultations, training, and workshops. Business students can also help consult real clients, giving them an incredible experiential learning opportunity.
Online business degree programs give more people and working professionals accessibility to earn a higher education while offering affordability, flexibility, personal advising, and tutoring. All of the undergraduate business degrees have an online option as well as a Masters in Business Administration degree.
