What Current Students Say See All 5 Comments >

The diverse and knowledgeable faculty give UB's students a range of perspectives when addressing business issues. Furthermore, all of the courses required for this program overlap each other making it is easy to see where they connect in a corporate environment. This allows students a 360 degree of how an organization operates and isn't just several courses you are mandated to take without seeing how they correlate.
