What Current Students Say See All 5 Comments >

UCR's business program prepares students for the real world by providing them with general business knowledge, and well as specific knowledge for the students' business concentration courses. The program emphasizes ethics and communication, which are truly significant in my opinion. Also, the diversity of students at UCR allows students to understand and respect people of different cultures, races, ethnicity, etc.
