READY TO LEAD ON DAY ONE.

Accredited by the International Accreditation Council for Business Education (IACBE), our accomplished faculty in the Rhode Island College School of Business put theory into practice, teaching small classes, where they are able to have one-on-one interaction with students that spurs engagement and accelerates learning. 

Grounded in the liberal arts, the School of Business combines core business and management competencies with communication, problem-solving and decision-making skills. As a result, our students are prepared on day one to pursue careers in business and industry or for graduate study in business-related fields.
