Business education at Quinnipiac is distinctly different. Our outstanding faculty, many with industry experience, provides real world classroom experiences of the highest quality. Small classes from freshmen through senior year, provide students with a consistent supportive and stimulating learning environment. As a Quinnipiac business student you will get to know your faculty and your peers.
This all begins with SB 101/Introduction to Business, through which five person teams of students run a virtual global business embedded within a world-wide competition among other similar teams. The course offers an overview of business as well as explorations of particular functional areas and team building and communications skills. Not sure of a major? SB 101 is a great place to start exploring the possibilities. And, don't worry; there is plenty of time (up to spring of sophomore year) to make an informed choice once you start as an undergraduate business student.
Beyond the Classroom
Learning takes place inside and outside the classroom. That is why students from every major take advantage of a wide variety of competitions and conferences that help develop interpersonal, communications, presentation and networking skills, all of which are critical to success. These complement the professional development program that begins in the freshman year. We know that today's competitive job landscape requires that students not only be well prepared academically, but also able to function effectively within diverse and global organizations. Quinnipiac students are consistently recognized for both of these characteristics and this is reflected in the positive career outcomes they experience.
Many business students get involved with student organizations linked to their majors or career interests, including the Accounting Society, the American Marketing Association, the Economics and Finance Club, the International Business Society, the Investment Club, the Society for the Advancement of Management and Students in Free Enterprise.
Finance and Economics students can compete in The CFA® Research Challenge hosted by the New York State Society of Security Analysts and The Fed Challenge. Those interested in trading careers may participate in the Rotman International Trading Competition held at the University of Toronto. Marketing and advertising students compete in the National Student Advertising Competition. Quinnipiac hosts a chapter of Beta Alpha Psi, the honor society for accounting students. Other external opportunities that cut across majors include the Connecticut Business Plan Competition and the national Enactus competition. And, of course, as a business school that holds the elite accreditation from AACSB International (The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) Quinnipiac hosts a chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma, AACSB's officially designated honor society for business students.
