The College of Business Administration is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.

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 of 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.

  • Performance-based internships.

What's Your Business Plan?



Our seven undergraduate majors open the world to you—whether your interest is in accounting, entrepreneurial management, finance, general business, global business, marketing, or supply chain management.  Add an emphasis on innovation and collaborative learning, great internships and on-site career resources, and you are on your way.





If you are already a professional, you want programs designed for today’s innovation economy—and you want options. We offer two MBA programs located in downtown Providence—our One-Year MBA in Strategic Innovation and our Evening MBA program.  In addition, we offer a Master of Science in Accounting, a Master of Science in Finance, and a PhD in Business Administration.

Dual graduate programs include the MBA/Master of Oceanography and the MBA/Doctor of Pharmacy.
