Salve Regina's Department of Business Studies and
Economics prepares undergraduates for careers in today's highly competitive
global business environment.
Our broad-based curriculum, endorsed by an advisory board
of industry professionals and accredited by the International Assembly for
Collegiate Business Education, introduces students to management theories,
business practices and the technology that enhances both productivity and the
effective utilization of all resources. The undergraduate business programs accredited by the IACBE include the B.S. in accounting, business administration, financial management, global business and economics, and marketing.
Courses are taught by approachable faculty members who
know their students and use their combination of academic and practical
experience to both instruct and advise.
Beyond the lecture hall, our department extends into the
real world. Through local internships and service learning options, students
have numerous opportunities to practice their business skills and improve their
resumes while providing a necessary service to the community. By choosing to study
abroad, they experience firsthand the culture, language and business practices
of other countries while gaining a deeper understanding of the dynamic and
culturally diverse world in which we live.
Unique among business programs, we integrate a liberal
arts tradition with the University's mercy and justice mission to emphasize
ethical and moral decision-making, the responsibilities of leadership and the development
of equitable business solutions. As a result, our graduates emerge as engaged,
principled world citizens prepared for success in all areas of business - from Wall
Street to Main Street.
Through the University's accelerated program,
highly motivated and qualified undergraduates can earn both a bachelor's and
master's degree within five years.
