A powerful network

Rich Bauer Jr. ’09 is a great example of the power of our alumni network. Since he was a student at Quinnipiac, he has been highly involved with campus life — which is what caught the attention of one of our alumni, who took Bauer under his wing and helped him get a position at Barnum Financial Group eight years ago.

AACSB International Accredited

The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business accredits approximately 30% of domestic business schools and 6% of international schools.

Entrepreneurial vision

Nate Noncent ’17 feared his mother would become injured as a result of wobbly walkers following several surgeries.

In Their Words

Students pose with their IT case competition team members and faculty advisor Kiku Jones, center.

Cracking the code

“My proudest moment at Quinnipiac was being selected to be a part of an IT case competition. It was a completely nerve-racking experience because I had to present in front of a group of IT professionals, but I overcame my fears. Despite not winning, just knowing that I did not give up and persevered in that moment will always make me proud.”

“When I landed my internship in China, it solidified for me that all of my hard work was paying off and getting me somewhere. In the summer of 2016, I had two internships, one as an international marketing intern for Tasly Pharmaceuticals through Quinnipiac’s international business program and another as a clinical information systems intern for Dartmouth Hitchcock Memorial Hospital. I am excited for my upcoming merchandising internship this summer with TJX Companies.”

The School of Business has exceeded my expectations with the significant growth and innovation across classes and departments to create and maintain a flourishing intellectual environment.”
