In less than one year at the University of New Hampshire (UNH), you can complete an AACSB-accredited MBA programme that promises close student-faculty interaction, a four-day New York residency with top corporate and financial officers, a 10-day international residency in China that connects you to exceptional corporate opportunities, and earn a career-boosting qualification.
Voted the number one Best Colleges for Business by Niche (2019) and recognised for its exceptionally high national ranking by Poets&Quants (2019), UNH’s Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics has a global reputation like no other.
Top-notch faculty with a cutting-edge curriculum
From the very start of your 10-month MBA programme, Paul College merges your studies with real-world insight and steers you through 11 required courses and five informative electives taught in eight-week terms.
Just an hour away from the multicultural city of Boston and minutes from the astounding Atlantic Ocean and mountains, you’ll be living on a campus in Durham that’s safe and secure, and learning in a location that’s far from ordinary.
Merged with a cutting-edge curriculum, your faculty is made up of experienced business scholars and leaders with entrepreneurial minds and expert skills to take your degree further.
According to Billur Akdeniz Talay, Associate Professor of Marketing and Director of Strategy for MBA programmes at UNH, “With small classroom sizes and experiential education opportunities through the Corporate Consulting Project and China residency, experiences are what makes us distinct in the greater Boston area yet at a fraction of cost.”
“These qualities make UNH a perfect home for any international student who is willing to pursue a graduate education opportunity in a foreign country.”
In agreement, Associate Professor of Strategic Management and Entrepreneurship, Jun Li, states, “The programme is also highlighted by a diversity of faculty who [have] different expertise, professional, and cultural backgrounds, which adds to the benefit of international students as they adjust to the new learning environment.”
Inclusive campus experiences with corporate connections
For one current student, Victoria Fournier, the reason she chose to study the MBA at UNH was simple, “I chose UNH because of how ‘outdoorsy’ New Hampshire is. With a short drive you can be at the beach or up in the mountains – I love it out here!”
While establishing a strong business network at the college, Victoria found that faculty, staff, and teachers were very helpful and supportive, “Most of them connected me to previous MBA students in a similar field or with similar interests to mine and it helped me to become confident about my future opportunities.”
While living at UNH, you’ll find yourself forming lifelong friendships. Immersed in a community that values inclusivity, well-being, locally-sourced dining and good old fashioned fun, your time here will be nothing short of unforgettable.
Hui Wang, another learner currently studying an MBA at UNH, values the campus atmosphere and the focus on career advancement.
“As a student who had [experienced] no business courses before, I found it necessary to learn from the MBA syllabus in order to pursue a good job in the business field after graduation.
“UNH is a multi-cultural campus and I can meet people from all over the world and I made most of my international friends through all kinds of activities and parties – I love it here!” Wang explains.
A business bridge to graduate success
So, how does the UNH MBA act as a bridge between you and your future business success?
To discover the truth behind Paul College’s impressive 94 percent job placement rate six months post-graduation, Study International asked past students to shed light on the school’s continuous achievements:
As a proud alumni member, Yunzhe Zhang from China explains, “During the UNH MBA, I had the opportunity to learn valuable skills such as spreadsheet modelling, data visualisation and managerial accounting. Their career centre also assisted me with job searches and my residencies in New York, Beijing and Chengdu supplied me with unforgettable experiences of different industries.
“I also had incredible opportunities to build my network in the US and one of the most impressive things about UNH is its strong connection to the local community, everyone is welcoming there.”
Alongside Yunzhe, Dante Lamb is another alumni member who enjoyed his MBA education at UNH.
Reflecting on his programme experience, he claims to have found the consulting project and international excursions extremely beneficial. By exposing him to the modern business world, UNH helped Dante graduate with drive and determination, ready to take on his next professional role.
As he adds, “I attended multiple campus career fairs and I now work at Lindt & Sprüngli South Africa – an opportunity I found through a UNH networking event. Thanks to the professional learning community at New Hampshire, I’ve been prepared for every situation at Lindt so far.”
