Why EMU business grads hit the ground running with more than a degree

by blogemu

Eastern Michigan University has the country’s top-ranked student center.

Let’s be honest. Having the country’s top-ranked student center doesn’t hurt. Stevie Newton spent many hours there during her undergraduate years at EMU (drinking lots of Starbucks because, she says only half-joking, college students have coffee in their blood and need it to function).

 

But there’s a bigger reason Newton transferred to EMU to finish her 4-year degree, becoming the first person in her family to graduate from college:

 

EMU’s College of Business is a pathway to opportunity.

 

Wherever you go, “Eastern Michigan University” rings a bell. Newton, who graduated in December, now has a degree linking her name with EMU’s and the respected mix of academic training and real-world training that it signifies.

 

“It’s great knowing I have this big accomplishment and when I go and pursue my career I can say I have a degree that helped me grow as a person, grow as a professional and helped me gain that knowledge in the classroom to apply in the real world,” Newton said.

Want more reasons EMU’s College of Business is the place for you?

 

*Our AACSB accreditation may sound wonky, but what it means is that our business school is practical and down to earth. We don’t just teach business theory. We help students apply it.

 

*We’re a state university that’s big enough to have the resources students need, yet small enough to foster the sense of community students want. Classes in EMU’s College of Business have only 30 to 40 students – not hundreds – so you can actually get to know your professors. You’re able to meet with an advisor when you need, to get the individual attention you need. You won’t get lost in a crowd.

 

*Non-traditional students fit right in. The average age in the College of Business is 26 years old. We offer flexible scheduling including evening classes, weekend classes and online classes to meet the unique demands of working professionals. Make an appointment to meet with our advisors

*EMU’s College of Business has unique articulation agreements with community colleges throughout Michigan and Ohio, pre-approving the transfer of credits not just in general education but also in business. You can earn an EMU degree with two-thirds of your credits coming from a community college.

 

*Having working professionals in the classroom along with tenured faculty with business experience makes for a dynamic learning environment. Plus, the EMU student body is diverse with students from around the world and across the socioeconomic spectrum. Students at EMU build a network of relationships that adds value to the degree they earn.

 

*You get more bang for the buck at EMU. Annual net tuition is 25-percent lower than the national average. Yet, alumni make 10-percent more money 10 years out of school than peers from other colleges around the country. Upon graduation, 94 percent of EMU College of Business alumni have jobs earning an annual salary in the $50,000 to $60,000 range.

 

Oh, by the way, the Princeton Review says EMU has one of the nation’s best business schools in 2017. That’s because EMU College of Business graduates hit the ground running.

“The education here is great,” said Newton, who is working off-campus for a global logistics supply company while pursuing a fully online master’s degree in integrated marketing communications at Eastern Michigan University’s College of Business.

 

“When you come here you can work with your professors. You can use all the resources in this environment to better yourself for your future. Moving forward, you’ll have a great experience.”
