Business Professionals of America (BPA)

Welcome! Saunders College of Business supports everything that you and your classmates are learning about in Business Professionals of America (BPA), including business management, information technology, office administration, finance and much more.

At Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) we produce the 2nd most STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) graduates in the nation which is a distinct advantage for future business students like yourself. And our top-ranked Simone Student Incubator at RIT is where business students and STEM students meet up to enhance their education, collaborate and create new businesses together.

The Freshman Experience: Biz 1-2 program at Saunders College of Business is a unique cohort program that where students jumpstart their business education from day one, providing an introduction to business fundamentals and serving as a valuable reference throughout their business degree program.

RIT also has one of the oldest and largest cooperative education programs, in which our students work one semester at a full-time paid job to gain valuable experience and put their classroom learning to work - DAY ONE: CAREER READY!

We are excited to sponsor BPA. We invite you to take advantage of the resources for BPA we have made available. We hope to see you on campus one day. Until then we invite you to visit us online and explore our Saunders College view book, undergraduate programs, co-op opportunities and student success stories so you can discover all that Saunders can offer.
