The Freshman Experience at Saunders College of Business

As a student at Saunders College of Business at Rochester Institute of Technology, you will embark on your business education starting on day one, and lay the foundation early for a successful career. Not every business school can match that.

Beginning on the first day of classes, you will be immediately enveloped into The Freshman Experience: Biz 1+2 program, an approach unique to Saunders College that is designed to get incoming students’ education off to a fast start.

All first-year students are enrolled into select fundamental business courses in their first year that exposes you to the central elements of entrepreneurship. This exposure provides an introduction to all the functional areas of a business in the process.

While many other business schools require general education courses in the first years, Saunders students develop a solid business foundation on which they will build upon and refer to throughout their business degree program.

Our students can say it best:

The courses encourage an enterprising spirit, being supportive of each other, and thinking critically and creatively. We were encouraged to think outside the box, no matter how crazy the idea. The classes were amazing fun and a rich learning experience.”
-Christian Rosado, New Media Marketing

"The Biz 1+2 program not only provided me hands-on business experience, it gave me the confidence to apply and receive a competitive internship after my first year! I was able to work at real companies while other student at other universities were just starting their business classes.”
-Zachary White, Management Information Systems & New Media Marketing

As a Saunders student, you’ll get a hands-on education through applied-learning that starts on day one. This is what sets Saunders College of Business apart.
