Freshman Business Experience
As a freshman, your business education begins with SB 101/Introduction to Business, which features the online business simulation game MikesBikes. This enables new business students to jump right into business competition, testing their skills among a group of students from around the globe. From day one, you'll have an opportunity to become involved directly in the functions that make business work, how they intersect and to begin to determine your interests and capabilities and figure out your best career fit.
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.
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.
