With the vision to be the first choice for enterprising students, Saunders College of Business at RIT is uniquely positioned to elevate students to make immediate and enduring contributions to organizations and the world. Integrated within a world-class institute of technology, Saunders College provides a broad portfolio of undergraduate and graduate programs residing at the intersection of business and technology - preparing students to lead and manage in this increasingly, technology-intensive, global environment.

Strong corporate connections, built upon our world-class cooperative education, allows Saunders College to offer programs that are relevant to today’s business needs and produce graduates that are in demand and ready on day one. Businesses value entrepreneurial thinking more than ever before and Saunders College provides the strong enterprising culture that exists within the classroom and beyond through the Saunders Consulting Group, Venture Creations Incubator, and the Simone Center – ranked as the #1 student incubator in the nation (BestColleges.com). The unique RIT environment that integrates highly regarded engineering, computing and technology, arts and design, liberal arts, and business courses on one campus, allows Saunders College students to develop an interdisciplinary perspective that positions them to tackle tomorrow’s business challenges.

I encourage prospective students to explore how Saunders College provides the educational experience that employer’s value - and that can only be found at RIT. I welcome additional corporations to partner with us to enrich the educational experience for our students through our wide array of partnership opportunities – engaging with both our students and faculty. I urge all of our students and alumni to engage and help us build upon the successes of Saunders College.

We look forward to seeing and hearing from you soon!

Dean and Professor
