The University of New Haven’s AACSB-accredited College of Business desires to help every student discover their passion and equip them to blaze a path to success confidently. Through rigorous academia, exceptional professors, endless experiential learning opportunities, and connection to an outstanding professional network, graduates are well prepared to compete in the evolving world of business. The student-centered environment values lifelong learning, integrity, teamwork, creativity, diversity, innovation, inclusion, excellence, and hands-on learning.
Undergraduate students gain foundational business knowledge along with their choice of specialized areas of study within a wide range of degree programs. They can major in Marketing, Hospitality & Tourism Management, Esports & Gaming, Business Management, Accounting, STEM-certified Business Analytics, Economics, Finance, International Business, or Sport Management.
Graduate studies in Business Administration include a Full-Time MBA, Flexible MBA, and an Executive MBA. The Full-Time MBA can be completed in one year, and the Flexible MBA offers a conveniently timed evening, daytime, weekend, and even online course format. They both provide customizable degrees through concentrations in Financial Analysis, Business Analytics, Human Resource Management, Strategy Leadership, Data Analytics, Marketing & Digital Marketing, Global Supply Chain Management, and Management Finance. Other Masters programs are in Accounting, Sport Management, Taxation, and the STEM-certified Masters in Finance.
Acquiring a global perspective first-hand is highly beneficial to the education of every business student. In Tuscany, Italy, the University has opened a satellite campus, which gives even first-year students the opportunity to study abroad. Faculty-led programs and Third-Party Providers take students all over the world, for different durations of time, to immerse in different cultures, earn course credit, and enhance their resumes.
Many educational experiences happen outside of the classroom. All around campus and throughout different degree programs, there are co-curricular activities that provide professional development, experiential learning, and engagement with peers, faculty, staff, and community leaders. All types of student organizations, from social and recreational to academic and professional, encompass these experiences. Business-related clubs include the Accounting Society, Charger eSports, Economics Club, Society for Human Resource Management, Sports Industry Club, Sustainability Club, and Undergraduate Student Government Association.
Incredible hands-on opportunities happen through case competitions, internships, company projects on-site, and working with the Bergami Center for Finance & Technology. This Center provides a high-tech computer lab, stock tickers, LCD screens, Bloomberg Professional real-time data information, analysis software, and other financial resources for students and the community. There is an annual competition for students to manage the Charger Investment Portfolio. Hospitality and Tourism Management students get to train while managing the entire operation of the student-run, on-campus Hazell Nut Café. They also train in foodservice management by providing buffet luncheons once a week at Jeffery’s Fusion Restaurant.
Several more opportunities to learn in an innovative environment are available to business students. The Entrepreneurship & Innovation Program provides pitch and business plan competitions, entrepreneurial visits, events, and workshops. At the Center for Family Business and the Non-Profit Institute, students can apply what they have learned through the resources available to the community.
