Howe’s standout academic offerings are complemented by our close proximity to New York, where 50 of the world’s Fortune 500 companies are based. Another 200 of the world’s Fortune 500 companies are less than two hours from Stevens. It’s not uncommon for business leaders to use lunch breaks to guest lecture or for former executives and alumni to teach in our programs as Executives in Residence.
On campus, one of the other assets that Howe offers is access, studies and assignments with the Financial Systems Center (FSC). The mock trading floor provides first-hand insight into what it means to be a publicly traded company. So, no matter what business major you want to study, a degree from Howe will give you unprecedented access to learn what moves the market. You’ll be able to learn how a company’s performance is influenced not only by its own internal operations and strategies, but also by external variables such as political, social and economic influences.
