About the Program

Sterling College has a unique program that prepares students for the workplace and/or graduate school immediately upon graduation. Sterling has done so with a practical and relevant core curriculum that emphasizes workplace training. Traditional business theory is emphasized, and is taught from an application perspective. 

Each student has the opportunity to tailor their business education by selecting a specialized concentration. This combination of core business education with the specialized focus empowers our student to excel in any business environment. 

In addition to coursework, each one of our business students is required to do an internship in their specific area of interest. This internship is a collaborative effort between faculty, the student, and the internship employer. This practical experience is invaluable as the students venture out into the real world upon graduation.
