In the constantly changing business environment, it is essential for employees to continuously enhance their skills as a way to contribute to your business and advance their careers. Having professionals who can contribute to a company’s overall vision, mission, and strategic goals is imperative for success.  Fairfield University’s Dolan School of Business would like to work with you and your organization to further develop employees’ managerial and technical skill sets so you will be best prepared for the challenges ahead. 

We offer a variety of academic programs for employees at many levels:  

One of our greatest assets is our highly skilled business faculty. Both our undergraduate and MBA programs received an “A+” for teaching quality in the prestigious Bloomberg BusinessWeek rankings. As nationally and internationally recognized subject matter experts, faculty members can also provide customized programs specific to your organization’s needs.  

Additionally, The Dolan School of Business has a thriving internship program. We view internships as a vital experience for undergraduate education, as 96% of business students from the class of 2014 completed at least one internship while at Fairfield University.  Our students are smart, talented, creative, driven, and can offer your organization a fresh perspective and renewed energy on a wide variety of tasks and projects.  

We welcome the opportunity to not only discuss our academic offerings but also brainstorm on your specific needs and requests.  To learn more, schedule a phone or in-person meeting with me, Don Gibson, Dean of the Dolan School of Business, by calling 203-254-4307 or e-mailing Patricia Pivarnik.
