Discover the Harris Difference.
If you are looking at business schools, here are some great reasons why you’ll want to attend Harris School. The most obvious? We’re leaders in career-focused education, which means we help you learn what you need to move from the classroom into the working world.
One-on-one education support.
Once you’re a student at Harris School, we will work individually with you throughout your experience with us. You will never feel like a number. And after you graduate, you will always be welcome back for refreshers or career advice. And Harris School maintains an “open-door” policy with our students, which means that the School Director and Director of Education are available for personal and academic advisement at any time during a student’s course of study.
At Harris, we major in careers.
Your education is just the start of our work together. Whether it’s about classwork or your next career, we’re part of your team from Day One. We’ll work with you to complete your application, help you fill out financial aid paperwork, and provide tutoring if you need it to support your studies. And when it comes time to look for that next job, our Career Services team will help you with your job search, create a resume, and work one-on-one to practice interview techniques. We also have job postings for part-time positions to help students looking for work while they're completing their program. Learn more about Career Services at Harris
Real-world experience: What you learn in the classroom you’ll try out in the workplace.
Our programs and the courses you will take are all about getting you a new career. When you learn something in the classroom, be ready to practice what you learn, either with a class team member or in an externship or practicum. That’s where you go out into the workplace as part of your education. You’ll get real-world skills and experience you can add to your resume so that when it’s time to go on an interview, you’ll feel confident that you have the right skills for the job.
