The Nicolais School of Business is shaping tomorrow's generation of ethical business leaders.
Wagner College, a four-year private college, is known for its innovative curriculum connecting liberal arts education to practical learning experiences throughout New York City. Set on a hill overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and New York Harbor, Wagner’s 105-acre park-like campus is only a ferry ride away from the cultural, intellectual, and professional heart of America—Manhattan.
Beginning your very first semester at Wagner, you not only study issues and learn critical-thinking, writing and problem-solving skills, but you also see and practice what you’re learning. Through Learning Communities and Reflective Tutorials led by our dedicated faculty, you get hands-on experience to the world outside the classroom.
Under the Wagner Plan, you complete a liberal arts core program and a major, totaling 36 units/courses. Students complete three Learning Communities (LC’s)—the First-Year Program, the Intermediate Learning Community, and the Senior Learning Community.
If you’re admitted to the Honors Program, courses are designed to stimulate and challenge you intellectually and to offer exceptional academic and co-curricular opportunities. Honors courses are more challenging, involve more discussion/debate, and require longer and in-depth research papers and oral presentations. The Program is affiliated with the National Collegiate Honors Council.
New York City is one of the most vibrant and exciting cities in the world, and Wagner students and visitors get to explore the rich diversity of museums, cultures, arts, sports, and attractions in all five boroughs. From campus, a free shuttle takes you to the world-famous Staten Island ferry, a well-recognized icon of New York City transportation and a free ride into the heart of New York City.
As a business major, you will select a concentration in accounting, finance, marketing, or management. The core curriculum and a capstone internship ensure that all students graduate with a broad and practical understanding of business.
You’ll also have access to corporations and business leaders from many different fields in New York City. Interns gain important skills and connections.
