How do you define the Paul College Experience:

For those with the entrepreneurial spirit, it’s a business plan competition and a social innovation challenge–with more than $100,000 in cash and other prizes. It’s a semester in Boston or New York working for a start-up or a high-powered investment firm. It’s combining an interest in nutrition with sustainable food practices through a degree in ecogastronomy. And for all, the FIRE program encourages first-year students to hit the ground running.

"In our industry, we do not sell products; our people are our assets. That said, it is imperative that we hire the best and brightest talent, which UNH students have consistently proven to be. It's always a joy coming to campus and meeting with these intelligent students with real-world experience who truly are the future of the firm."

Business In Practice

We recently updated our curriculum to expand opportunities for our students to work with major companies to solve real business problems as a part of their education. This experience gives them dynamic, individual and team-based experiences before they enter the workforce, and helps them to build skills in social, analytical, competitive, and professional intelligence.
