Business Administration Programs Overview   

Our business degree programs give 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 repeatedly, it’s this combination of skills that helps pave the way to professional success.

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.

The “Programming Ethical Design in Digital Age” Learning Community (LC), for example, teaches students how to create ‘good’ or ‘ethical’ digital designs to help resolve problems and challenges encountered in the professional world and everyday life. In a rapidly changing, interconnected society, tomorrow’s leaders will need creativity, problem-solving skills, technological fluency and ethical reasoning in order to be successful. This Learning Community provides students an overview of three domains: design thinking, ethical approach and computer programming. Students will develop both conceptual appreciation of ethical design and basic understanding of computer software programming. Topics include architecture, crime prevention, fashion, industrial products, urban planning and workplace.

AACSB Accredited

Stonehill’s business program is accredited by AACSB International, placing us within an elite group of higher education institutions that make up less than 6% of the world’s business schools.
