The Fredonia Difference

Small class sizes lead to close interaction with faculty, plus the chance to conduct research at the undergraduate level -- a hallmark of a Fredonia education. In addition, all students have many opportunities for internships, available locally, regionally and across the nation, due to the many strong relationships the university maintains. Management majors also have access to a leadership minor which supplements their business classes. As seniors, management students have multiple opportunities to work with real businesses and non-profits to develop recommendations that make a difference in success. American Society for Quality (ASQ) supports students by offering tours, networking and educational opportunities.
