Thank you for considering the University of New Haven’s programs in Business Management. Careers in business today are exciting, complex, and extremely dynamic! A successful career in business can be fulfilling, as well as lucrative! We have graduates from our programs who have become established corporate executives in Fortune 500 companies, as well as ones who have entrepreneurially established their own business enterprise.
At the University of New Haven we engage our students with accomplished faculty who have a robust mix of academic and practitioner experience. We don’t just tell our students how to operate in the business world; we ensure they get exposure to what it is like to be a member of the business community. Through internships, field trips, clubs, alumni interactions and experiential exercises, our students learn to think and act in a way that prepares them to flourish in today’s organizations.
Successful companies need employees who have some knowledge of all of the fundamental business disciplines such as Accounting, Finance, Human Resources, Marketing, IT and Strategy. Additionally, employees need to understand how the different functional pieces fit together to create an organization that achieves competitive advantage and wins in the marketplace.
Our programs don’t limit students to one functional discipline or one specific industry; instead we produce students who can play a wide variety of roles, within a wide variety of industries. Our students understand the language of business and are capable of seeing the “big picture.” They develop the leadership competencies that help them land competitive jobs and position them for ever-increasing roles and responsibilities within their chosen profession.
I look forward to meeting you soon and helping you enjoy every aspect of the University of New Haven experience!
