WE TEACH HOW BUSINESS WORKS.
At URI’s College of Business, you learn to approach problems—and to solve them—the way businesses do. That’s true if you are an undergraduate interested in finance or a graduate student with a passion for strategic innovation. Today’s business leaders demand a new generation of skills. Technology is, of course, a big part our culture. So are global thinking and an innovative approach to project management, critical thinking, and communications.

We’re small. We'll know your name and offer you real-world internships that are right for you—performance-based projects with companies from IBM and Price WaterhouseCoopers to Christian Dior. Here you'll find a private school atmosphere at a public school price and the kind of faculty, programs, and opportunities you need to develop into an innovative leader ready to manage change in the diverse, global business economy of tomorrow.

  • Small size, big thinking.

  • Performance-based internships.

  • Innovation, innovation, innovation.

  • Global Thinking

    Global thinking.

  • Unique – and often colorful – programs.

  • NABAgroup

    Community, collaboration, careers.
