In the Sigmund Weis School of Business, students are mentored and leaders are cultivated. Collaboration, achievement, and hard work are rewarded here. Success comes from a dynamic business curriculum that is built on a solid liberal arts foundation. Our program is not easy, but it is highly valued. A degree from the Sigmund Weis School of Business provides a great return on your investment. With a faculty-to-student ratio of 1:12, professors bring real-world experience into the classroom, including business plan competitions, an investment laboratory with Bloomberg terminals, and visits to businesses and nonprofits in New York City, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. First-year students take Global Business Perspectives, culminating in a team presentation in front of business executives. Few other business programs provide this type of hands-on opportunity to first-year students. The Bloomberg computer terminals give students experience with real-world tools that most business undergraduates at other institutions don't encounter. That experience provides Susquehanna graduates an advantage when competing for their first job out of college. In addition, 90 percent of Susquehanna students complete a professional experience, such as internships or research, while enrolled. Our 18,000-member, global alumni network provides many of these professional opportunities to students. In fact, alumni from renowned international companies visit campus regularly to judge student presentations, speak as guest lecturers, and seek out prospective interns and employees. In addition to a solid business education, Susquehanna students gain important interpersonal, teamwork, writing, technology and problem-solving skills that employers worldwide seek.
