Welcome from the Dean

As you learn more about the Sigmund Weis School of Business at Susquehanna University, I hope you reach the same conclusion I have—that this is one of the top undergraduate business schools in the world.

Why? We offer a rare combination—an AACSB accredited business program focused solely on undergraduates at a private liberal arts university. Our students obtain a state-of-the-art business education and also gain a global perspective and learn to think critically and write well—hallmarks of a liberal arts education.

Our program highlights international experiences, with 100% of students studying away from campus for at least two weeks. In the past year our students have studied across the world and had internships in the United Kingdom, Italy, Singapore, South Korea, and other countries.

Employers see the value of a Susquehanna education. With a 98% placement rate within six months of graduation, our graduates clearly earn the education that employers value. We don't prepare students for jobs, we groom them for a lifetime of achievement, leadership, and service.

AACSB Accreditation

AACSB accreditation, which the school first achieved 20 years ago, is the hallmark of excellence in business education. Less than 5 percent of the world's business schools earn the distinction, and the overwhelming majority are not private liberal arts schools of Susquehanna's size. 

We're proud to be in the company of other AACSB schools, including Harvard Business School, the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School and Carnegie Mellon University's Tepper School of Business. 

What does AACSB accreditation mean to you? It means you get an excellent return on your educational investment. Top companies will recognize the quality of your degree, often offering higher, more competitive salaries.

Students are taught by a highly qualified faculty. 92% of our full-time faculty have a Ph.D. or terminal degree, and most also have real-world business experience.

Our curriculum is rigorous, with a focus on developing skills that employers want, including the ability to think critically and communicate clearly and to solve problems in a constantly changing global environment.

Global Business Perspectives

This course immerses you into the business world—in your very first semester! You and your team will work on a consulting project where you develop recommendations to improve the profitability of a major corporation. (Recent projects include Netflix, Burberry, Under Armour, and Bed Bath and Beyond.) As a finale, your team will present to business executives in a professional business pitch experience.

Outcomes

Virtually all of our students get a job within six months of graduation—thanks to our solid business coursework and well-rounded liberal arts education.  

Liberal Education and America's Promise (LEAP) confirms that a liberal arts education integrated with all fields—from business and professional programs to the arts and sciences—provides a foundation for students to expand their horizons, build an understanding of a wider world, hone analytical and communications skills, and foster responsibilities beyond self.

AACSB Accreditation

Our business school's AACSB Accreditation puts us among the top 5 percent of business schools worldwide.

Recognized for giving students a great education—at an affordable price—that launches promising careers.

Ranked among top 25 percent of U.S. liberal arts colleges' economics departments for faculty research.
