What Current Students Say See All 5 Comments >

The blend of textbook learning as well a real life experience makes the school very unique. Also, the effort to learn about sustainability and social business is very helpful. Professor quality is usually outstanding! Most of our professors have Phds if not have a very extensive experience in a particular field. We do not have any TAs and the class size are usually small. This helps to develop strong relationship with the Professor.

    Work study positions include paid undergraduate jobs as Student Consultants at the Information Technology Help Desk; Assistants in the Financial Technology Center; support positions for the Global Asset Management Education Forum (G.A.M.E.); A comprehensive program of internships is offered rather than co-op. Sixty percent of students participate in the internship program. More than 250 companies recruit on campus for interns and more than 400 companies post these opportunities at Quinnipiac.

  • Is study abroad available? Yes
  • Description of study abroad programs:

    Quinnipiac recognizes that global experiences are critical to business education. Our students travel the world, using both study and internship opportunities in countries ranging from Australia to Zimbabwe. Students may choose from partnership programs that have been established in the UK, China, France, Ireland, and Turkey or from programs through the University’s global education office. Students may also, under advisement, identify their own global study or internship experience.

  • Is community service or volunteering available? Yes
  • Description of community service/volunteering:

    Student organizations engage in service projects such as canned food drives and neighborhood cleanups. The Alternative Spring Break program allows students to dedicate their break to making a difference in communities from Nicaragua to Haiti. Quinnipiac also takes part in "The Big Event," a nationwide day of community service when colleges and universities send volunteer teams into the community. Accounting students run an IRS-certified V.I.T.A. tax preparation clinic every Saturday during tax season.
