Overview

Education at the speed of business

The world of business is complex, ever-changing and demanding, but rewarding for those who are well-prepared. Your business education is a critical foundation that will enable you to enjoy long-term success through both bull and bear markets. Though it may be difficult now to distinguish among the many business schools and their promises of a high-quality business education, the difference will become evident as you advance in your career. 

At Quinnipiac’s School of Business, our point of difference is clear. We provide an education that closely tracks what the markets require, experiential learning opportunities to be able to apply that knowledge, and expansive relationships with the top companies to help you gain experience through internships and then land your first job.

We’re proud of the achievements of our students and alumni. Employers everywhere tell us how ambitious and talented they are. If you're up for working at the speed of business, Quinnipiac is the perfect place to start.

Programs at a Glance

From traditional to innovative to accelerated, we've got a program for that

All School of Business programs deliver market-driven knowledge and expertise and provide strong emphasis on experiential learning in our world-sized classroom. Our unique model of business education takes our students beyond the ordinary to learn and apply their knowledge in real business settings.

The School of Business offers industry staple programs in finance, marketing, management and accounting, but we also specialize in other undergrad degrees, such as biomedical marketing, international business and computer information systems — because we continually adjust our programs to meet the needs of the market. 

If you're looking for advanced programs, we've got those, too. The School of Business offers a variety of accelerated and dual-degree MBA programs, such as our 3+1 and 4+1 BS/MBA programs, which allow you to complete your undergraduate and graduate degrees to get you working faster. This provides a very strong return on your education investment. And as a business student, that's something you can appreciate.
