Huntingdon Means Business
In the world of business, your success depends upon your ability to think in new and different ways, adapt to change, understand the global marketplace, and work and communicate with others. Your Huntingdon education will prepare you for success in every way, through resume-worthy experiences and real-world studies.
Accounting, business, and economics courses, combined with Huntingdon’s core curriculum, emphasize the skills you need to lead and to serve others: critical thinking, writing, speaking, decision-making, teamwork, organization, and reasoning. Huntingdon College’s Business and Accounting programs offer a number of advantages that put graduates ahead of those from other colleges, including:
- A focus on leadership skills and business ethics.
- Excellent internships that often lead to permanent employment upon graduation.
- International business component in every class, preparing graduates for success in a global economy.
- Lecture series that bring community business leaders and accounting experts to campus.
- Curriculum touches upon all aspects of business, including quantitative skills, technology, economics, management, organizational behavior and communications, human resources (training and selecting employees), strategic planning and management, problem-solving.
- Flexibility to accommodate a second major.
- The Hobbs Honors Program, the Business Club, the Accounting Club, Sigma Beta Delta business honorary, and other student organizations add depth to your studies and build your connections both inside and outside the classroom.
