I have grown so much over the past few years at Saint Peter’s University. I have had so many wonderful opportunities here, such as spending a study abroad semester in Barcelona, working directly with my professors in interesting research related to my major, and getting great advice and assistance on internships and careers. Your professors and career advisors here really get to know you personally and help prepare you for the challenges of real world. – Katherine J. ’13
Let’s get down to business.
At Saint Peter’s University you can choose from four exciting fields:
Saint Peter’s also offers a five-year combined B.S./M.S. degree in accountancy and a certificate program that enables students who have completed an undergraduate major in accountancy to earn the additional credits needed to sit for the CPA exam.
Because we are located at the heart of the world’s largest business hub—the New York metro area—business students can take advantage of career-building opportunities, internships, conferences and other business experiences both inside and outside of the classroom.
Our small class sizes allow professors to mentor their students individually. This creates many opportunities for student-faculty interaction, conversations, debates and business research projects.
As a Jesuit university we emphasize the importance of personal morality and ethics to prepare our students for careers in the challenging arena of business and global competition.
And our diversity of students from around the world brings cross-cultural business perspectives to life and enhances the classroom experience.
Thanks to a successful network of graduates and long-term corporate contacts, our business students are in demand by employers across the globe.
International Business graduates typically get jobs managing people and organizations around the world and across national boundaries. Students in this major are strongly encouraged to speak a second language and also spend time studying abroad.
Marketing graduates from this program are hired to market products and services in different industries. Jobs range from sales positions, public relations, advertising, product and brand management to marketing research and internet marketing. Our marketing students are in high demand for internship and job opportunities in the larger New York City region.
Gain Firsthand Experience
Marketing students gain firsthand experience in marketing for actual companies through course projects delivered to real clients.

In fact, the field of accountancy has never been more relevant, challenging, or filled with opportunities. The skills required for you to become a truly outstanding accountant–critical thinking, exceptional analytical skills, solid ethics and independent judgment–are the hallmarks of a Jesuit education at Saint Peter’s. One look at our graduates will you show why our program has earned a reputation for developing sharp minds, forged in one of the greatest business regions in the country, the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area.
The demand for accountants is growing (especially for women) and job opportunities are better than ever. Whether you want to be a partner in an accounting firm, a CPA or work in corporate finance or at a nonprofit, a degree in accountancy can be the key to success.
The department offers an Accountancy Certificate program that enables students who have completed an undergraduate major in Accountancy to earn the additional credits needed to sit for the N.J. Certified Public Accountant (CPA) examination.
