Seton Hall University’s Stillman School of Business has been in existence since 1950 and the first private business school in New Jersey to obtain the AACSB accreditation. It carries the legacy of W. Paul Stillman, who was an incredibly hard-working, successful, and high-achieving businessman and financier. The SoB’s motto is “transforming concepts into business practice,” and they offer small classes, a sense of community, excellence, and a strong curriculum centered around ethical practices.
Those pursuing an undergraduate degree can obtain a Bachelors in Business Administration in Economics, Mathematical Finance, Management, Sport Management, Accounting, Finance, Information Technology Management, or Marketing. Graduate students can earn a Masters in Professional Accounting, Accounting, or Business Administration. MBA students can concentrate their studies in several areas, including Finance, Accounting, International Business, Information Technology Management, Marketing, Management, Supply Chain Management, and Sport Management.
For an incredible international educational experience, Stillman students can participate in foreign exchange programs and study business for a semester or a year. Locations include the Management Center in Austria and several sites in China, including Shanghai University of Finance & Economics and Shanghai Institute of Foreign Trade. Any Stillman student can apply for business scholarships, including the Anandavalli and the John M. Pocher Memorial Scholarships. There is also the Robert E. Wright Accounting and the Helen and Harold Lerner Endowed Marketing Scholarships. Students can even win scholarship money through competing in the “Advancing Stillman” Competitions.
The life of a student is found both inside and outside the classroom. To gain the most out of their time, business students can join a variety of student clubs and honor societies. These include ALPFA, Entrepreneurship Club, Sport Management Student Association, Alpha Chi Lambda, Financial Planning Association, Alpha Sigma Omega, Seton Hall Consulting Group, Accounting Club, APICS, Marketing Club, and SHU Women in Business. Many opportunities are available to business students to help apply what they are learning through hands-on experiences.
One excellent resource is the numerous internship opportunities that can lead to future employment. Also, students can partner with faculty members in research projects. The 17,000 Stillman Alumni that work all over the world help provide ways to learn, grow, and network. Another excellent experiential learning opportunity exists within the different University Applied Learning Centers. The Center for Entrepreneurial Studies began in 2003 to encourage, mentor, advise, and provide resources about entrepreneurship and self-employment. The Center for Leadership Development develops leaders through classes, blogs, events, honors programs, specialized courses, engagements with executives, and professional mentorship. There is also the Market Research Center, the Institute for International Business, the Center for Securities Trading and Business Analytics, the Center for Business Ethics, and the Center for Sport Management.
Stillman offers a highly ranked online Masters in Business Administration degree with concentrations in Finance, Marketing, and Accounting. Graduate students can also benefit from the online Masters in Accounting and the online Masters in Business Analytics degrees.
