Pursue and achieve your goals at Clarkson University’s Reh School of Business. Our tight-knit, persevering community not only wants to see you succeed, but we ignite your drive and connect you with opportunities that build real-world experience and your résumé.

Begin building your future with a bachelor’s degree from the Reh School of Business:

Learn by Doing

We pride ourselves on getting our hands dirty. That’s how you learn and prepare to make an impact even before you finish your bachelor’s:

  • Advanced Tools and Strategies: Reh School students receive hands-on instruction in the most current tools and strategic tactics — from accounting and data analytics programs to making data-backed decisions.
  • Entrepreneurship: We reinforce the importance of entrepreneurship in and out of the classroom. In course Small Business 113: Entrepreneurship and Business Innovation, develop an innovative business plan with other students and pitch it to potential investors. Participate in one of our many Shark Tank entrepreneurial competitions, or help manage part of the University's investments fund.
  • Real-World Experience: Practice what you learn in internship and co-op assignments, and build a lengthy and varied résumé before you graduate. View business from a global perspective and face these challenges head-on in our Global Business Programs and Clarkson’s study abroad opportunities.

Mentorship and Collaboration

Our faculty commit to your success — from the classroom to your pursuit of developing solutions to real-world challenges. Receive one-on-one guidance from faculty mentors and professional advisors who know your name and what motivates you and point you toward the right resources to grow academically and professionally.

Support through innovation and collaborative solutions defines our community on a broader scale. In classes, further hone your teamwork skills with students just as ambitious as you are.

Tackle New Challenges Together

Our students are active, motivated and ready to take advantage of the Clarkson experience. Beyond internships, establish yourself as a leader on campus through student government to intramural sports and recreational clubs. Or, expand your network in business-centric student organizations like Alpha Kappa Psi and the Clarkson Strategic Investment Group.
