The Department of Business delivers a comprehensive global business education with a real-world focus to complement the liberal arts foundation embodied in SNC’s core curriculum and overall pedagogical approach. All faculty members combine sound academic credentials with depth of experience in middle- and senior-management positions in the private sector and/or international diplomatic agencies.
This enables them to address the professional preparedness element of SNC’s mission statement from a practical, versus merely theoretical, perspective. Moreover, instructors strongly emphasize in each course the critical thinking, creativity, and oral and written communication skills necessary to apply entrepreneurial thinking to all their endeavors in order to enhance personal, professional, and organizational sustainability.
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.
