The Shannon Difference

The Shannon School of Business faculty is made up of skilled practitioners and accomplished academics. The classes you’ll attend at CBU’s Shannon School of Business have limited enrolment, ensuring the small class sizes we offer at CBU. When you show up for class, you’ll quickly discover you’re a lot more than just a student number. Our faculty  get to know their students, meaning you receive the individual attention you need for success. And if that wasn’t enough, the Shannon School of Business (named to commemorate business leader, Joseph Shannon), maintains close ties with the local business community, with frequent opportunities to learn first-hand from our best and brightest businesspeople.
