Message from the President

At Nichols College, we’re committed to developing tomorrow’s business leaders through a dynamic, career-focused education. A strong business curriculum combined with a solid liberal arts core provides the foundation upon which all majors build. A highlight of our curriculum is our pioneering professional development program which gives our graduates a distinct advantage in the competitive workplace.

As you browse the website, you’ll get a sense of what makes the Nichols community so vibrant – significant opportunities for students to learn and lead, in and out of the classroom; a supportive and mentoring environment; highly qualified faculty; a campus landscape that expands each year with new and improved facilities; study-abroad experiences; and of course, Bison fever for our thriving home teams.

The success of students, both in their academic training and professional endeavors, is at the heart of a Nichols education. The College is proud of the thousands of Nichols alumni who have put their degrees to productive use and who have fashioned their own success stories. Among them are CEOs, company presidents and business owners who attribute the solid business education and nurturing atmosphere of Nichols as the underpinning for their transformation from student to professional.

After you’ve explored the website, we encourage you to visit the Nichols campus. Come see and feel what sets us apart from other business colleges and experience for yourself the exciting and innovative ways our students are preparing for their futures.
