Whitman School of Management

An undergraduate education at the Whitman School is about far more than traditional academic preparation. It is about experiencing integrated core learning through an innovative curriculum that focuses on business fundamentals from day one. It is about having opportunities to double major, join multiple internships, apply knowledge outside the classroom, and gain global experiences through studying abroad. With the support of our adept faculty and staff and ready access to our dedicated Career Center, students leave confident and prepared to face the competitive marketplace and realize professional aspirations.

What Current Students Say See All 5 Comments >

Our professors are very influential and experienced in their own fields and we have state of the art facilities in our business school. Students are able to double major or minor in diverse programs without having to take a million classes to graduate. Lastly, I honestly believe that SU has one of the best retail programs in the country--that's why I'm here now.

    We provide students real-world experience through student employment in daily operations with roles in communications marketing, social media, IT, career development, recruiting, and administration. Our globally recognized D'Aniello internship program provides unique entrepreneurial opportunities for highly qualified students. Students must also have at least one internship or co-op experience of substantive and supervised work that complements their academic program. Many global internships are available.

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

    In cooperation with SU Abroad, students are offered global experiences through programs in London, Santiago, Madrid, Strasburg, Florence, Istanbul, Hong Kong, or Beijing. In addition, Whitman faculty develop international programs delivered throughout the year offering our students training and exposure to different cultural business components. Both our D'Aniello and regular internship programs give students additional real-world, global business acumen throughout the year.

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

    Students give their acumen to both local and international programs. SU - Enactus students visit cooperatives of Mayan weavers annually developing unique products for sale in the US with profits being returned to support scholarships for impoverished Mayan girls. They also joined with the Rescue Mission to develop 3fifteen, an upscale thrift store on campus generating a half million dollars in its first year. Our Beta Alpha Psi club partners with Deloitte to offer students tax return preparation assistance.
