The Department of Business delivers a comprehensive global business education with a real-world focus grounded in SNC Tahoe’s liberal arts foundation.

Our faculty members combine sound academic credentials with management experience in both private and public sector organizations worldwide, giving them a thoroughly practical perspective on professional preparedness. Our courses emphasize critical thinking, creativity, and communication skills to embed entrepreneurial thinking into every class and project.

Our programs are designed to get you out of the classroom and into the real world as soon as possible. Our students intern at such places as Paine-Weber/UBS, the Energy Conservation Department, the Sierra Angels (a venture capital firm), Prim Associates, Diamond Peak Ski Resort, and Deep Distributors. Several of our internship opportunities have resulted in permanent career placements for our students.
