Preparation and opportunity
Our School of Business provides a dynamic, hands-on education that focuses on personal and professional development. You will have unparalleled access to our industry-leading faculty and the ability to forge meaningful connections that often endure after you graduate.
Critical to a Quinnipiac education is providing expansive opportunities for experiential learning. This will provide you with access to our global network of education partners and industry leaders where you will apply the market-driven knowledge and expertise that you've gained to further your development.
The opportunities go into overdrive once you graduate. More than 98.9% of our graduates are employed or earning advanced degrees within 6 months of graduation — a figure that is far above the national average. Even better, last year's median starting salary for our business school graduates was $56,000.
Our commitment, though, is to prepare you not just for your first job, but to provide the professional skills and personal growth that will position you for a long, rewarding career in business.
At Quinnipiac you will join undergraduate classmates from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences — from high school valedictorians to first-generation college students to military veterans. The diverse perspectives and the unusually supportive, tight-knit community provide a rich and challenging setting for nurturing your personal and professional development.
Students like Raphael Carvalho ’15, MBA ’17, a first-generation college student from Brazil. From his time as a boy growing up in Brazil dreaming of playing Division I soccer and earning an MBA in America, he always dreamed big.
“I got recruited by Quinnipiac and offered a spot on the men’s soccer team — and completed my undergraduate degree here in two years while also being part of a championship soccer team,” he said.
But his ambitions didn’t stop there. During a summer internship at Morgan Stanley, he impressed the company president so much that he was offered a full-time job more than a year before completing his MBA.
All of our business students share a reputation for friendliness and enthusiasm — and for a roll-up-your-sleeves kind of work ethic. Students graduate from Quinnipiac prepared and ready to work hard. Employers tell us that sets them apart.
