The AACSB-accredited Leo J. Meehan School of Business at Stonehill College not only desires to develop the strongest, most informed, and experienced industry leaders, but grounds them in the Holy Cross Catholic traditions. This holistically prepares students for success in life and a significant impact on the world. The new, incredibly modern, and technologically sound $35 million business school facility provides excellent resources and spaces and an advanced supportive learning environment. Through the liberal arts’ inspired and challenging curriculum, cross-campus collaboration, and a lofty focus on experiential learning and service opportunities, students transform into ethical and compassionate leaders, and creative thinkers prepared to conquer the competitive global economy.
Meehan is made up of three departments: Business, Economics, and Healthcare Administration. Students are allowed to pursue two majors across Meehan and the May School of Arts & Sciences. Undergraduate studies consist of majors in Management, Accounting, Marketing, Economics, International Business, Healthcare Administration, and Finance.
The Masters in Data Analytics is an accelerated program that meets on weekends and online, and students acquire the SAS Academic Specialization through their course of study. The Masters in Integrated Marketing Communications is a part-time program and is campus-based.
Meehan highly encourages students to discover what the world has to offer and gain knowledge in their field of study and humanity as a whole. Meehan students can study business abroad at universities in London, Budapest, Copenhagen, Shanghai, Dublin, Prague, and Madrid.
Every Meehan student is encouraged to join a business-related student club and honor societies to increase leadership opportunities, build friendships, serve the community, network, and hear from guest speakers. Groups include the Accounting Association, Financial Management Association, Beta Alpha Psi, Healthcare Society, DECA, Beta Gamma Sigma, Economics Club, Marketing & Management Association, Women in Finance, and Omicron Delta Epsilon.
What an extensive amount of real-world, hands-on, and experiential opportunities Meehan has to offer their students. The internship program is highly successful in connecting students with the right fit. There are local internships with companies like Deloitte, EY, State Street Global Advisors, and Goldman Sachs; domestic internships in New York, Washington, DC, and Los Angeles; and international internships in Madrid, Dublin, Paris, or London.
Externships give students opportunities to network, explore career options, and observe professional environments with successful alumni. Meehan students can visit New York City or Silicon Valley for a week filled with intensive meetings or spend Spring Break in Washington, DC, exploring governmental, political, and nonprofit careers.
Other areas of experiential learning include student research and service opportunities. The Stonehill Undergraduate Research Experience allows Meehan students to conduct research alongside a faculty member. The student-led Community Engagement Program allows Meehan students to impact the local community through volunteering with organizations that help animals, people with disabilities, tutor kids, the elderly, empower women and feed the hungry and homeless. The H.O.P.E Service Immersion Program travels across the country and the world to serve those less fortunate, show compassion, and deal with social injustices.
