Feliciano School of Business Ranking Description
“The Feliciano School of Business is AACSB accredited and offers many bachelor’s and master’s degrees. Their graduate programs include a weeknight MBA with an executive speaker series, a 9-10 international study trip, and a globally focused curriculum. Nearly 60% of Montclair State University business students are people of color. Montclair prides itself on the diversity of its community and more than 20,000 students who enroll each semester. The Multicultural Center offers general diversity workshops that dive into topics such as microaggressions, stereotypes, inclusion, social justice, privilege, and more. Discussion groups are also hosted as a way to facilitate community and encourage students of all backgrounds to share their experiences. OSJD Ambassadors is another way for both undergraduate and graduate students to volunteer and develop both small and large diversity education programs and initiatives. Even though the current health crisis has changed things a bit on campus, the University still recently celebrated Black Heritage Month with a series of virtual events.”
