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 earn a promotion after graduating. Students receive regular input not only from faculty advisors, 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 seeking internships or graduate school; information sessions on studying abroad; 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.

The work of the center translates into student excellence: 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.

Where students come first

The Student Support Center is a highly visible demonstration of the Stevens commitment to being a student-centric university.
