Career Development

In the School of Business, members of the Office of Career Development work with students to plan the academic and professional components of each student’s education. They explore career interests, guide students through a career development process and provide assistance with internships, resume preparation and employment interviews.

Internship Programs

Undergraduate business students are encouraged to gain valuable career experience by participating in an internship program. Both paid and unpaid internships in a range of industries are available on Handshake; however, students may find their internships by other means such as LinkedIn and other professional networking.

To register for an Internship for Credit course:

The Internship for Credit course requires advanced approval from the School of Business Career Development Office. Once a student has secured an internship, they must apply for an Internship for Credit on Handshake under the Experiences tab. Upon application approval, students are automatically enrolled in the General Business Internship course, SB 488. SB 488 is the academic course that must be taken during the same semester (or summer term) in which the student completes their internship. To assure flexibility in managing internships and coursework, SB 488 is an online course. There is no retroactive credit for prior internships.

Determination of credit hours:

One academic credit is awarded for every 50 hours of internship work, with a maximum up to 3 credits per semester or term, and unless a student is completing a double major, only 3 credits can be earned in a given semester for an internship experience. If an internship extends beyond the length of one semester, students may apply for SB 188 in the following semester to receive up to an additional 3 credits for the internship. A maximum 6 academic credits may be earned for internship experiences. Students who are completing a double major can earn up to 3 credits in each major (a total of 6 credits) for internship experiences.

Mission Statement

The School of Business is a student-centered educational community focused on preparing students for achievement and leadership in their professional careers.


The development of our students as passionate learners and emerging professionals.

The impact of alumni, students and faculty in business and in the community.

Applied learning that integrates the classroom with meaningful and impactful activities such as internships, student competitions, faculty-student research, student consulting, international opportunities (study abroad, student exchange, immersion experiences, internships).

The active support of faculty scholarship that emphasizes contributions to practice and pedagogy.

Mutually beneficial collaborations with the business community that advance the education of our students and the research of our faculty.

A collegial, respectful and responsible environment where members of the community act with integrity, honesty, fairness and tolerance.

Diversity in people and in ideas.

Learning Goals

Business Knowledge: Apply the basic business theories and concepts to understand and solve business problems.

Business Analytics: Effectively gather, assess and utilize data to understand, improve and communicate business decisions.

Communication: Communicate business ideas effectively through written communications, oral communications and presentations, and digital media.

Critical Thinking: Utilize information or research findings to analyze problems and determine appropriate solutions.

Business Ethics: Apply ethical frameworks to evaluate situations and determine appropriate solutions.

Cultural Adaptability: Recognize and apply knowledge and diversity within and across individuals and groups.

Professionalism: Exhibit professional behavior, including a strong work ethic in their classes, in their interactions with faculty, staff and colleagues, and in their team assignments.

Business Core Curriculum

The common requirements for graduation with the bachelor of science degree for all business majors include completion of the University Curriculum (that covers fundamental areas such as English, mathematics, science, social sciences, the humanities and the arts), the business core curriculum and the major requirements. The business core challenges each student to develop a knowledge and skill base for further study within the business disciplines, and the major requirements provide students with specialized knowledge within a field of business.

In addition to the traditional business core coursework in accounting, business law, economics, finance, international business, management and marketing, the school also offers a seminar designed to begin the professional development process required to be successful in today’s competitive business world.

Disciplinary Inquiry (four classes = 13 credits)

In the “Disciplinary Inquiry” phase of the University Curriculum, students make their first encounters with specific knowledge and methodologies in the disciplinary areas. This phase familiarizes students with the kinds of knowledge produced in these disciplinary areas and thus informs their choices as they undertake their “Personal Inquiry.” Additionally, students are proceeding upon their Personal Quest as they take these and all breadth courses, including reflection upon their Guiding Question.

Students select EC 111 and one course from each of the remaining disciplinary areas as follows:

  • Natural Sciences: any 4-credit UC science course

  • Humanities: any 3-credit UC humanities course

  • Social Sciences: EC 111

  • Fine Arts: any 3-credit UC fine arts course

Personal Inquiry (six classes = minimum 18 credits)

The “Personal Inquiry” (PI) phase requires 18 credits with at least three Disciplinary Inquiry areas represented. This allows students significant flexibility in the selection of coursework as they pursue their Guiding Questions. The Personal Inquiry requirement has two parts:

Part 1 (three courses): In addition to those selected under Disciplinary Inquiry above, students select EC 112 from the Social Sciences and a course from two of the remaining disciplinary areas: Natural Sciences, Humanities and Fine Arts.

Part 2 (three courses): The remaining courses are IB 201 and any two other UC courses from the disciplinary areas in Part 1 and/or UC Breadth Electives. Students can combine Disciplinary Inquiry areas and UC Breadth Electives in any pattern that totals 9 to 12 credits. [Note: natural science courses that are treated by the Registrar as two separate courses (lecture and lab) shall be treated as one course for the purposes of the PI requirement. Students could thus take up to four lecture-lab pairings in the PI.]

Integrative Capstone Experience (one course = 3 credits)

The Integrative Capstone is offered in the School of Business. Students select an additional unrestricted course in the University Curriculum.

Intercultural Understanding (one course = minimum 3 credits)

As students purposefully select courses and progress through the Breadth part of the curriculum, it is imperative that all students develop the skills, knowledge and diverse perspectives necessary to address the complexity of their Guiding Questions, and to acquire the understanding necessary to be informed and ethical citizens who can contribute to the local and global society.

To achieve this goal, within their 31 breadth component credits students are required to take at least 3 credits in classes marked as “I” (Intercultural Understanding). The classes with “I” designation can be chosen from any area in Disciplinary and/or Personal Inquiry.

University Curriculum Breadth Electives (formerly called UC “Electives”)

University Curriculum (UC) Breadth Electives are courses with generalizable and transferrable knowledge that are based in a single academic discipline outside of the four Disciplinary Inquiry areas (Natural Sciences, Social Sciences, Humanities, Fine Arts) or that reflect nationally established interdisciplinary areas. Such courses increase the disciplinary, methodological and cultural perspectives available to students in the University Curriculum, thereby extending the breadth of their knowledge to navigate successfully a complex and dynamic world.

Policy for Students Who Fail FYS 101

First-year students who are entering the university in the fall semester who withdraw from or fail to receive a passing grade for FYS 101 during that semester are given one chance to repeat the course during the first spring semester that they are enrolled at Quinnipiac. If they fail to complete the course successfully on a second attempt, they may not take FYS 101 again. They may not withdraw from the course on the second attempt. The failing student receives no credit for FYS 101, the failing grade (F) remains and they must substitute 3 credits from any other UC-designated course to count toward required general education credits.

FYS 101 Policy for Transfer Students

A student who transfers to Quinnipiac with less than sophomore standing (fewer than 27 credits) shall enroll in FYS 101 in their first semester at Quinnipiac. Students who transfer to Quinnipiac with 27 or more credits must substitute any UC-designated course for FYS 101, to count toward the general education credits needed to graduate. They also will complete a series of self-guided online modules by the start of their second semester at Quinnipiac, designed to ensure students successfully complete their remaining general education requirements and prepare for the integrative capstone experience.
