Why Business at Guilford?
Today’s turbulent business climate calls for leaders who can think critically, communicate effectively and evaluate analytically. The knowledge base of our world is increasing at a rapid pace; whether our students pursue graduate school or enter the business world they must be able to identify, analyze, and evaluate new problems and situations in a constantly changing environment.
At Guilford, we appreciate that the study of business is inherently interdisciplinary. Our students are challenged to articulate their inquiry through effective oral and written communication. As they explore sophisticated, real world problems, they develop the knowledge and skills to think critically yet creatively. In addition to their core business management courses, students broaden their understanding of the world by exploring non business subjects. Cross-cultural course work and experiences studying abroad provide global knowledge that is essential in an increasingly interdependent world. Students work collaboratively, recognizing the value of differing cultures, traditions, histories and perspectives when considering solutions.
Our graduates are well poised to assume positions of responsibility in a global business community. They have the knowledge and skills to respond to challenges by devising innovative solutions and they recognize that these solutions may have social and cultural implications. By connecting choice and action to ethics and responsibility, our students have a distinct competitive advantage: they approach their postgraduate endeavors with both business acumen and a finely tuned moral compass.
Graduates of the Guilford business program have gone on to graduate and business schools and have careers in public accounting, finance, organizational leadership, and academia.
