Stonehill's business program gives students the skills, knowledge and experience needed to launch a career in their chosen field along with a liberal arts foundation that signals to employers that they are a well-rounded and adaptable thinker. As our alumni have demonstrated time and time again, it’s this combination of skills that helps pave the way to professional success.
In a reflection of our Congregation of Holy Cross roots, the business program prepares students “to make ethical, thoughtful and significant contributions to their organizations and communities as professionals,” and stresses the importance of courage and conviction in a global environment.
The Support Needed to Succeed
There are several other factors that account for our exceptional reputation and they are worth considering when comparing Business programs. Among them:
- As an undergraduate-only institution, our students are taught by full-time faculty whose main focus is teaching and advising. Our faculty bring both solid academic credentials and business experience into the classroom, and provide individual attention to students through academic advising and career mentoring.
- The case-study approach used in many classes will sharpen your decision-making and problem-solving skills.
- Students will have the opportunity to apply classroom theories to real-world experiences by engaging in comprehensive on-the-job internships either domestically or internationally and through our many cocurricular programs.
These experiences, both in and out of the classroom, combined with accessible faculty, dedicated alumni and our well-earned reputation for excellence, prepares students well to take the next step, whether it be entry into the job market, an MBA or other graduate business programs.
Move Quickly from Learning to Doing
Stonehill’s Business program is renowned for getting students out into the field for the kind of real-world experience that not only adds important perspective to their coursework but connects them to the people who can play a role in determining their success after graduation.

Developing Ethical and Compassionate Leaders
Long before media scrutiny turned it into a focal point in the business world, Stonehill was incorporating ethical perspective and corporate social responsibility into its Business curriculum.
Learning Communities (LCs) such as “Responsible Business: From Principles to Practice” help students appreciate issues of fairness and ethics. Other LCs, such as “Building Leaders,” employ community-based learning and put students in business situations in which they assist nonprofit organizations either directly or through work with the College’s Center for Nonprofit Management.
