Not only has undergraduate enrollment in business programs grown by 21% over the last five years, but the profile of each entering class has become more competitive as well.
During the same period of time, graduate student enrollment increased by 67%, driven in large part by new master’s degrees in financial risk management, business analytics & project management, and human resource management.
The School’s faculty offer a wealth of academic and business experience to students and the business community.
Over 96% of them have earned a Ph.D. or the highest degree in their field, and all are actively involved in scholarly activities including authoring books, college textbooks, articles, conference papers, and original research projects; business, government and industrial consulting; and sponsored research for academic programs.
Such scholarly activities enable faculty to stay current in and contribute to their fields of knowledge, as well as to bring a balanced perspective between theory and practice into the classroom.
To help meet the teaching needs of unprecedented enrollment growth in recent years, the business school faculty grew by 13% between 2013 and 2017.
Over the last five years, both undergraduate and full-time MBA students saw overall increases in average compensation.

Careers are no longer linear, that much is clear. Many of us went to UConn with clear expectations and road maps as to what we expected to do with our lives and careers. Well, somewhere along the way we took a turn or two and have found ourselves either in a career path we didn't expect, or perhaps built a career out of ingenuity and creativity.
Whether you have found yourself in the career path you intended when you attended UConn, or you have navigated into unexpected fields, or even invented your own career, we can all agree, there is room for growth and for helping our careers get to the next level.
Join this all-star panel of individuals, moderated by Jim Lowe, Assistant Vice Provost and Executive Director of UConn's Center for Career Development featuring the President & General Manager of Mohegan Sun, Ray Pineault '88 CLAS; Chief Investment Officer and Managing Partner of ProPark America, David Schmid '92 ENG; and President & Founder of Freeman Companies, Rohan Freeeman '95 ENG for an evening discussion on career trajectory, creativity and entrepreneurship, career successes and setbacks as well as thoughts on the hiring front in the Hartford and Connecticut markets.
In addition to the panel discussion, recruiters and human resources representatives will be on hand to speak to interested alumni about the hiring process and opportunities within their respective companies.
