    Description

    Graduates from our Management and Entrepreneurship programs are self-starters. They find opportunities where others see challenges.

    Whether it’s running a business or launching a new venture, our alumni have one thing in common–an eagerness to learn and lead others.

    Our students graduate ready to manage and lead employees at complex organizations. They know how to assess situations, adapt to change, and make important business decisions under pressure.

    The skills, knowledge and connections they’ve gained at Suffolk often land them at executive positions at major companies like KPMG, Goldman Sachs, and Apax Partners LP. Others have launched their own businesses from the ground up.

    Students today, leaders tomorrow

    Our alumni have started hundreds of successful businesses around the world. In 2009, Greg Balestrieri (BSBA '09) and Joe Melville (BSBA '08) spent a whopping $3 million on the domain name “candy.com.” Today, their online candy store offers 6,000+ types of candy, as well as candy-making equipment and accessories.

    John Verrell (BSBA '08) opened Battery Park Bar & Lounge just two years after graduating from Sawyer Business School. Self-described as a “chic sports bar with the old Boston feel,” the bar was named #1 After-Work Watering Hole on the 2012 Boston A-List.

    Dan Vidal (BSBA ’09) is the founder of ArtVenue, an online tool that helps artists show and sell their work at local businesses. Vidal’s young business won $50,000 in the 2011 business competition sponsored by MassChallenge, a Boston-area nonprofit organization focused on encouraging innovation. DigBoston, Boston’s only alternative weekly, called it: "Pretty much the most intriguing thing to happen to the burgeoning art-market since Etsy."

    • MGT-302 Developing Innovation Skills

      Credits:

      3.00

      Description:

      This highly interactive and experiential course will help you to develop your creative skills for business and life success. Corporate leaders consider creativity [1] to be an essential skill. However, according to a recent Conference Board study [2], college graduates lack the creativity and innovation skills needed to succeed in the workplace. The Council on Competitiveness warns that companies that do not embrace innovation (and creativity) as a core business value will fall to global competition.[3] We will discuss meaning of life issues that will serve to clarify your thinking and help you align your values and belief-systems with what you do on a daily basis at work and throughout your life. A substantial body of evidence indicates that people tend to be more creative when working on projects that interest them, and most creative when passionately immersed in their endeavors. We will focus on enhancing creativity in the workplace to achieve defined organizational needs, to add economic value to the organization, and to create social value as well. We will also focus on helping you to understand and apply a wide array of creative processes and tools to develop your creative competencies and skills. We will use breakout groups, role plays, experiential exercises, and discussions to facilitate your learning. This course is an invitation to you to explore and define what you want to create in your life. [1] The Conference Board defines creativity/innovation as the ability to demonstrate originality, inventiveness in work, communicate new ideas to others, and integrate knowledge across disciplines.

    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
