Allied Health Programs of the New Brunswick Community College are also co-located on the campus. The Faculty of Business offers innovative undergraduate degree programs in Applied Management and Business Administration, as well as a competitive MBA program, all of which are recognized for quality and consistency in producing future business leaders. With the ongoing pursuit of AACSB accreditation and a 1:17 faculty to student ratio, the Faculty offers students a high level of engagement with subject matter specialists and provides an inspiring and inclusive environment of learning, discovery, and service.
