Successful business leaders come to campus and speak as guest lecturers, offering you their perspectives on how to succeed. And thanks to a special relationship with Travelers insurance, students get special one-on-one career advice.

CCSU’s broad-based business program, combined with our General Education component, ensures that your business studies build on a solid foundation. Business courses will teach you about the working world; “Gen Ed” courses will teach you about life.
