  • Accelerate your path to internships and jobs. Connect with corporations in the Twin Cities—Fortune 500 companies, entrepreneurial start-ups, and nonprofits—in your standard coursework. The connections of our professors and alumni mean regular visits to local firms to gain a variety of up-close-and-personal business experiences and learn from their business leaders.
  • Reputation makes a difference. Our School of Business has a strong reputation for excellence among top corporations—employers consistently rate our students highly and each year several of our business majors are offered positions before graduation.
