CREATE A CAREER FOR TODAY—AND TOMORROW.
At URI’s College of Business, you learn to approach problems—and to solve them—the way businesses do. Technology is a big part of our culture—so are global thinking and a creative approach to project management, critical thinking, and communications. Here we offer you real-world, performance-based internships with companies from Price WaterhouseCoopers to Christian Dior, and you'll find the academic and professional opportunities essential for a career in a diverse, global business economy.
What's Your Business Plan?
Our undergraduate majors open the world to you—whether your interest is in accounting, entrepreneurial management, finance, general business, global business, marketing, supply chain management, textile marketing, or textiles, fashion merchandising and design. Add an emphasis on innovation, collaborative learning, and great internships, and you’re on your way.
As a professional, you want programs designed for today’s innovation economy—and you want options. We offer two MBA programs—our One-Year MBA in Strategic Innovation and our Evening MBA program. We also offer MS degrees in Accounting, Finance, Labor Relations and Human Resources, Textiles, Fashion Merchandising and Design, Graduate Certificates in Labor Relations or Human Relations, and a PhD in Business Administration.
It’s all about collaboration. Our “Green Business” program offers you a BS in Business and a BS in Environmental Economics, and in our International Business Program (IBP), you’ll receive a BS in any of our majors and a BA in a foreign language. Dual graduate program options include the MBA/Master of Oceanography and the MBA/Doctor of Pharmacy.
