The University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) is a comprehensive regional university that consistently ranks among the top Midwestern regional universities in U.S. News & World Report’s “America’s Best Colleges.” Providing an alternative to both large research universities and small liberal arts colleges, UMD attracts students looking for a personalized learning experience on a midsize campus.
Academics tailored to you
At UMD, we believe in teaching you how to think, not what to think. At our Labovitz School of Business and Economics (LBSE), students gain critical-thinking skills and experience by participating in internships, studying abroad, completing real-life projects with local and Fortune 500 companies, and competing in national and international student competitions. UMD is proud that its business school is one of only 5% of business and management schools in the world to have AACSB accreditation. This means a Business degree from UMD sets you apart and opens doors to exciting and rewarding career opportunities in your field.
Right fit, right location
UMD’s main campus is located on 244 acres, and the majority of campus—consisting of over 50 buildings—is interconnected by a vast series of hallway systems, skyways, and concourses. The campus is based in the safe community environment of Duluth, Minnesota—Outside magazine’s 2014 winner of “Best Outdoor Town in America.” It offers easy access to the Minneapolis–St. Paul region, the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, and Chicago. Not to mention, it’s located next to beautiful Lake Superior and the boundless adventure of the North Shore.
“After graduation, I’ll be working full-time with 3M…My program and college have helped me achieve this goal by bringing guest speakers from top companies into classrooms, having company days to talk to recruiters, and having professors that are strong mentors to help you intern with a company that fits your morals and goals.”
