The  Whitman School aims to inspire and prepare students for an ever-changing business world. For these reasons, each semester dedicated staff and faculty work closely with alumni, donors and industry partners to create and facilitate experiential programming that bridges the gap between classroom learning and practical application, all while expanding job placement opportunities and assisting students to build meaningful connections.

Home to many of the country’s top companies, leading industry professionals, a population of more than 50,000 Orange alumni, countless recruiters and two Syracuse University facilities, the New York City metro area is a unique educational landscape close to campus filled with a wealth of opportunities for students, made accessible through the Whitman School.
