A Home Away From Home for Students

The School of Business firmly believes in its student-centric approach to education. That means creating opportunities to ensure every student succeeds — in class, in securing internships and in preparing to land a job or secure a promotion after graduating. Students receive regular input not only from faculty advisers, but from a dedicated Student Support Center team that provides advice and assistance on everything from registration to graduation — all with a friendly face that creates a true home away from home. 

Among the services provided by the center are study plan management, assistance in changing programs or transferring, providing guidance to international students and answering questions about studying abroad. Staff also host events, like a series of freshman mingles; events to assist students with study plans and seeking internships; and even a welcoming phone call to new students in the summer, to address any concerns they may have well before arriving on campus. And support staff cater to both undergraduate and graduate students who need assistance, advice, or just a place to get a cup of coffee and read the paper.

Our efforts are reflected in our students’ performance: Ninety-five percent of graduates from the School of Business are placed within six months of graduation, and among the companies that recruit Stevens students for jobs and internships are Bank of America, Citi, Credit Suisse, Dow Jones, EY, Goldman Sachs, Prudential, Thomson Reuters and UBS.

What students say
about the center

“You can literally just walk in, and someone will see you and make sure your issues and needs are met. And they follow up and keep in touch, and make sure what you need is being addressed. That’s a huge selling point."
