Seton Hill University’s School of Business wants you, as a student, to “own your future.” That is why they provide a rigorous curriculum with a broad range of business principles and hire high-quality, experienced business professionals to teach the coursework. From the very first day, a faculty advisor will assist each student along the academic journey to help with decisions about classes, majors, career options, and even choosing a graduate school. All business programs carry the esteemed IACBE accreditation.
Undergraduate students can pursue a Bachelors in Business Administration with specializations in Entrepreneurial Studies, Marketing, International Organization, Human Resources, and Information Management. They can also earn a Bachelors in Accounting, Communication, Data Analytics, or Sports Management. An excellent opportunity for students interested in obtaining both levels of degrees is the ability to earn a Bachelors and Masters in only five years with the FastForward Program. Those interested in teaching business can earn a business administration degree and a Business, Computer & Information Technology teaching certificate at the same time. Graduate students can earn an MBA in Entrepreneurship, Healthcare Administration, Management, Forensic Accounting & Fraud Examination, or Project Management.
For financial aid, undergraduate students can apply for many different scholarships, including the Elizabeth Ann Seton Scholarship and the Joseph C. Cahill Scholarship. Graduate students can find financial assistance through such things as the Alumni Discount or the Employer Reimbursement Program. Students can obtain an incredible international experience by participating in a course one to three weeks long in places like China, Spain, Ireland, or Argentina. They can also join an immersion trip to one of the institutions in Japan, Korea, Scotland, Israel, or Puerto Rico for a semester or longer.
College is an incredible time of life, investment, sacrifice, fun, hard work, and preparation for the rest of your life. Students are encouraged to engage in student organizations like the Business Club, Society for Human Resource Management, American Marketing Association, ENACTUS, and Collegiate Entrepreneurs’ Organization to get the most out of the educational experience. The Career and Professional Development Center provides resources and advisement with every step in preparing for a career. This includes resume writing, interview prep, internship options, and even helping alumni with career advancement. In 2009, the Wukich Center for Entrepreneurial Opportunities opened at Seton Hill. The Center focuses on the organization of entrepreneurial education and opportunity for the entire campus. Some of the resources provided include the Business Model and Elevator Pitch competitions, the Entrepreneurial Lecture Series, entrepreneurial skills workshops, business plan development, Wukick Scholars and Interns Programs, entrepreneurship research, and the Wukich Venture Fund.
It is getting easier for working professionals to obtain a higher education through online degree programs. The SoB offers an accelerated Bachelors in Business Administration or Accounting entirely online, although the optional specializations for the BBA do require on-campus evening classes. The MBA, with all five optional concentrations, can be completed entirely online or in combination with on-campus courses.
