Unique Learning Experiences

  • Business students in NYC

The time is now to jump into the action and start an exciting new chapter in your life. The next four years will go by fast, so make the most of them. When we ask graduating seniors about their experiences at Western New England University they often say, "If you told me four years ago that I would be able to do the things I've accomplished, I would never have believed you." From trading an actual $100,000 student-managed investment fund on the Stock Market as a Finance major, to presenting their research in New York City at an international psychology conference, to engineering a surgical device for breast cancer patients, our students take pride in how far they have come and are confident in how far they will go with a degree from Western New England University.

Cross-disciplinary Learning

We encourage student entrepreneurs to work across disciplines to develop new ideas. In the Product Development and Innovation course, Business and Engineering students team up to invent and market new products. To date, six student projects have been granted provisional patents. What innovation will your team create?

Learn the Tools of the Trade

In the Frances and Norman Cohen Trading Room and Financial Center, you'll learn the tools of the trade using our professional financial analysis software. You can even take a course managing a $100,000 student-run investment fund.
