In our Virtual Open House on October 20, 2011, Dean Manny London led a chat about our exciting College of Business. Dean London was accompanied by Dan, a student in the B.S. in Business Management with a specialization in Marketing, and Tom, a Political Science major in the 5-year fast-track MBA program, who provided unique student perspectives. Throughout the chat, the Dean discussed admission to the College of Business program, liberal arts requirements, community service opportunities, our four specializations (Marketing, Accounting, Finance, or Operations Management), the Honors Program, and the fast-track program. He also highlighted how 40% of undergraduates, especially many in the College of Business, conduct independent research with faculty.
Dan explained in greater depth the introductory curriculum, his experience studying abroad in China, principles courses in sophomore year, and the wonderful education and guidance from professors in the College of Business. Tom described his experience in the fast-track MBA, where students major in a field outside of Business and complete their MBA in five years. This program allows him to take both undergraduate and graduate courses as a junior.
Both students fielded questions on their high school preparation, including AP courses and high school courses, the multiplicity of job and internship possibilities for business graduates, study abroad opportunities, and events at the Career Center which assist with networking and developing professional skills. Dean London even added that representatives from major companies, including Target and GEICO, have recently visited Stony Brook. All three stressed how Stony Brook’s Business Management program provided a flexible curriculum which enables a variety of successful career paths.
