Careers and Consulting

Learning is about more than sitting in a classroom taking notes. For business students at the Tobin College of Business, it's about the practical application of classroom knowledge - through innovative programs like these:
Undergraduate Internships

Credit internships provide business students with valuable work experience, which will enhance their classroom learning.

Executive-in-Residence Program

The Executive-in-Residence Program (EIRP) prepares students for executive leadership roles by offering the unique opportunity to provide real-world strategic consulting services to for-profit and not-for-profit organizations.

Student Management Investment Fund

The Student Management Investment Fund (SMIF) course is designed to give students hands-on experience at performing investment research, investing money and managing a portfolio prior to entering the work force. To date, the combined value of the graduate and undergraduate Funds is approximately $3.2 million.

 

Academic Service-Learning

Since fall 2011 the Tobin College of Business requires all sophomore and senior students to engage in Academic Service Learning projects as part of their coursework.  These consulting projects take the form of advisement across a variety of business related issues to not-for-profit organizations.

Income Tax Assistance

Tobin students participate in the St. John’s University Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program co-sponsored by The Foodbank for NYC. This Internal Revenue Service (IRS) VITA program provides tax advice to lower-income New Yorkers.

 
Business Plan Competition and Expo

The James and Eileen Christmas Business Plan Competition and Expo, co-hosted by the Peter J. Tobin College of Business and the Office of Alumni Relations provides students with an opportunity to try their hand at creating an original business plan and presenting it to a panel of executive judges.

 

Societies and Organizations

Honor Societies and Student Organizations encourage students to interact with their peers as they pursue their goal of a graduate degree. Organizations focused on a number of business areas provide students the opportunity to begin building their professional network.
