Towson’s undergraduate business program is AACSB-certified. It boasts an average class size of 30 “that allows for greater interaction with professors and classmates,” and certifications for high-demand software skills built into its courses. 

The school also offers abundant experiential learning opportunities such as “case competitions, service learning projects and internships to sharpen your knowledge and skills and enhance your résumé,” as well as “the opportunity to work with industry-leading technology from Bloomberg, SAP, Microsoft and more.”

Alumni say:

“Towson University’s College of Business & Economics was essential in preparing me for life after college. All my life I knew that I wanted to go into management and Towson prepared me for that. I was certain that I knew I wanted to stay far away from finance, but the College of Business & Economics managed to find a way to spark a passion for me. I now have the needed tools to be a manager while also helping several customers a day with their financial needs.”

Towson University’s business program required students to partake in a capstone project. This project entailed a business case where students had to engage in a group together to strategically brainstorm a solution to the business problem.”

I studied International Business in France, Morocco, and Tunisia. It was wonderful to learn about other country’s culture and how they relate to their business practices.”
