At Saginaw Valley State University, our hardworking business students innovate, inspire, and achieve.
With determination and passion, the Cardinals of our Carmona College of Business soar to new heights and excel as leaders and professionals.
Our world-class programs are led by experts and accredited by the AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business). This recognition means that our students graduate from one of the top 5% of business schools in the world and stand out in the job market.
Personalized programs of study
At SVSU, we set ourselves apart with specialized degree programs that allow our students to decide their own unique path. For example, our BPA program reaches far beyond the typical undergraduate level of accounting to prepare our students to excel on the CPA exam and fast-track a successful career in public accounting. Concentrations in programs like family business management and professional sales allow our students to explore which areas of business spark their passion.
We know that where you study effects how you learn. That is why we invested in our students and have constructed a new $25 million business building that opened in 2020. Our innovative facilities allow our students to combine classroom knowledge with practical experience, as well as interact with faculty and business executives. Instead of being limited to a typical classroom, our new additions create a real-world environment and include:
• The Consumer Behavior Lab provides a space for students to conduct research, lead focus groups, and learn firsthand how consumers make decisions
• The Research & Innovation Hub serves as an adaptive space for students to interact and freely share ideas with their peers, professors, and members of Michigan’s Great Lakes Bay Region business community
• The Finance & Big Data Lab simulates the live trading of Wall Street and uses state-of-the-art technology (like the Blomberg platform) to teach students how to analyze and apply financial data
Supportive & experienced professors
Our industry-connected professors are committed to your success and push you to maximize your potential. They work with you one-on-one to provide personalized mentoring and guide you to achieve your goals.

At SVSU, your personal and professional success is our top priority, and we are dedicated to helping you succeed in business.
