Studying the liberal arts help students develop communication, critical thinking, problem solving and leadership skills, which help our grads succeed in the world of business, from working at exciting start-ups, becoming entrepreneurs, or working for large companies.
Business-oriented STUdents often take courses in Business, Communications and Public Policy, Economics, Languages, International Relations, Journalism, and others.
Take courses with hands-on and practical elements—Introduction to Business (Business), Labour Relations and Collective Bargaining (Business), Economics and Government (Economics), Community-Based Internship (International Relations), Public Policy and the Media (Communications and Public Policy), etc.
Every club on campus has an executive or board that allows for leadership. In these roles, you will organize events, deal with internal and external partners, handle funds, and execute strategies.
STU’s Office of Experiential Learning partners with many organizations—from start-ups to larger businesses—to offer STUdents internships and a chance to develop professional networks before graduation.
Examples of business-related internship partners:
- Ignite Fredericton
