A Welcome from the Dean
It’s not business as usual anymore. Whether you are an entering freshman or a seasoned MBA student, our goal is to provide you with the cutting-edge skills and knowledge that will allow you succeed at every stage of your career. Tapping into the dynamic, innovation-focused environment of PhilaU, the School of Business Administration has redesigned our business education to help you navigate a successful future regardless of the economic conditions ahead.
From day one, not only will you dive deeply into your concentration, you’ll also work with students from other disciplines, mimicking what you will experience in the workplace. You will interact with design and engineering students and others from across the campus, challenging each other to use creativity as well as analytics to conceive of new, valuable, market-driven products and services. Our curricula focus on sustainable innovations that improve customers’ lives; people, planet and profit make up the bottom line. As you earn your degree, you’ll benefit from unique advantages such as study abroad, internships with regional business, and collaborating on projects with industry leaders to build valuable connections that can last a lifetime.
At PhilaU, we provide you not only with the skills and knowledge you will need to succeed in your first job, but also the versatility necessary to discover new professions and opportunities as technologies and business models evolve. You’ll leave PhilaU with a big-picture perspective and skill set that is invaluable to today’s and tomorrow’s employers.
While multidisciplinary classes, collaborative learning, industry partnerships and professional training may be new concepts for other universities, I am proud to say that these principles make up the cornerstone of our mission. Industry leaders seek out Philadelphia University graduates because they are well-prepared professionals with expert knowledge of their industry and the distinct ability to work collaboratively with professionals from other disciplines. We couldn't ask for a better affirmation of our program’s tradition of excellence. Our students, faculty, and alumni constantly inspire me. As the future of the University, you inspire me. It’s an honor and a thrill to lead our programs on their paths to growth and continued success.
staying ahead of the curve.
