The Schroeder School of Business offers a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA), a Bachelor of Science in Accounting, and a Bachelor of Science with a major in Economics. The BSBA includes Global Business, Finance, Management, Marketing, and Logistics and Supply Chain Management.

Schroeder courses include real-world projects, as well as outside guest speakers from the business community to actively engage students in their learning. For many alumni, the projects at Schroeder provided an active learning experience in solving a real problem and understanding how business functions in the real world. 

“Senior projects like presenting work in front of the owner of a company or an actual client made me feel like the work I was doing was more than an assignment – it was actually affecting someone’s business,” one alum told us. “It gave me an extra push to do well.”


The Schroeder School has a variety of unique programs that provide opportunities for students to engage in impactful experiential learning.

“I was involved in the LEAD Forward program, which helped me increase and develop my leadership style and characteristics,” an alum told us. “The program gave unique experiences with a retreat focused on leadership development and opportunities to have access to high ranking individuals such as C-Suite executives.”

Upon graduation, LEAD Forward fellows have experienced a job placement rate of 100% and a starting salary of 12% higher than their peers.

“The experiential learning through the LEAD Forward Fellowship program was exceptional,” another alum reported. “The unique experience taught me a lot and put me in a position to exceed my employer’s expectations after graduation.”

Another experiential learning program is the CFA Institute Research Challenge – an annual global competition with mentoring and intensive training in financial analysis and professional ethics. The competition is structured around local, regional, and global rounds as students are tested on analytic, valuation, and presentation skills. 

“I had the opportunity to take part in the CFA competition where I was able to analyze and provide financial recommendations on a company as part of a regional competition,” one alum said. “[I gained] further opportunities to network with other students and industry professionals as part of this event.” 


The Schroeder School leverages Harlaxton to create extensive opportunities for students to study abroad through a two-week business program, five-week summer session, full semester, or combination of these options.

“I was able to study abroad two times due to the flexibility allowed by my degree program,” one alum told us. “These experiences helped me grasp various concepts of international business that I do not believe could be easily taught.”

At Schroeder, learning business isn’t so one-dimensional. Whether it’s through real-world projects, experiential learning programs, or study abroad opportunities, students are getting an integrated education in becoming well-rounded business professionals. 

Alumni say:

I was able to hold a full-time internship at my current company that ultimately led to me getting an offer here. I received 12 credit hours in accounting while working during the heart of busy season. Another key part of my education was the Cap Sim course that I took. This allowed me and a group of classmates to run a real-time business, making decisions like executives. I found this to be a huge learning experience.”

“I traveled to the U.K. with a group of my business school peers to study the effects of global trade and the impacts of the UK exiting the European Union. We visited large companies, manufacturing facilities, sports complexes, and listened to several lectures.”

“Business school provided multiple extracurricular programs that covered different areas of business and finance that allowed students to gain a better understanding of careers in the fields of business and finances.”

“The class engaging activities, simulations, real-life examples, and the social activities at the business school made my experience unique.”
