A business education in the college involves more than classroom study; through experiential learning and study abroad opportunities the college strives to provide students with a global awareness of domestic and international business with a hands-on focus. Students in the college have opportunities to study abroad learning business concepts in such locations as China, Switzerland, Argentina, Ireland, England and many other countries. These faculty-led programs familiarize students with global business and practical skills needed for successful careers.
Howard Isaacson Innovation Challenge
The Howard Isaacson Innovation Challenge is an exciting chance for Lynn students to develop their bright ideas for a product or business into a pitch that could earn them cash prizes. Teams with creative and viable business plans will present their idea before a panel of judges made up of entrepreneurs and business experts.
