A Message From the Dean of the College of Business

Elizabeth Davis posing in front of a stock board in the Maxcy Hall business classroomThank you for your interest in the College of Business at the University of New Haven. As a national leader in experiential education, we provide a wide variety of learning opportunities that emphasize a combination of theory and practice. Our curriculum is structured to give you a chance to explore the business world and get your feet wet right from the start — you’ll take your first business course in the first semester of freshman year. What better way to establish a solid career than with the foundation of a liberal arts education and a strong business core?

In keeping with our model of experiential learning, we give you the opportunity to participate in local and national competitions such as the Google Ad Word Contest, business plan competitions, and corporate challenges. We also are able to offer you internships through our extensive alumni base as well as through the business network of our faculty. All of these resources give you priceless opportunities to take the knowledge gained in the classroom and apply it in a real-life business environment. We even offer you the chance to earn your tuition by participating in the College of Business Scholarship Challenge — a fun and creative competition focused on entrepreneurship for high school seniors.

Our graduates are people who are making a difference in today’s global economy and in the lives of others in our local communities from Wall Street to Main Street. The College of Business not only enables you to develop intellectually but also allows you to cultivate a professional network that is essential to success in your future career. I encourage you to visit our campus, meet our students and distinguished faculty, and experience all that the College of Business at the University of New Haven has to offer.


Elizabeth B. Davis, Ph.D.

Dean, College of Business
