Message from the President

At Nichols College, we’re committed to developing tomorrow’s business leaders through a student-centered approach combined with extensive experiential learning opportunities. The mix of a strong business curriculum and an outstanding liberal arts program provide the foundation for our disciplines. This combination is helpful both for learning while at college but is also very attractive to employers. Additionally, we embrace intellectual diversity where all viewpoints are welcome and explored together.

As you browse the website, you will get a sense of what makes the Nichols community so vibrant – significant opportunities for students to assume leadership positions, in and out of the classroom; a “family” environment; a world class faculty; facilities that are award-winning, state-of-the-art buildings; picturesque grounds and landscaping; extensive internship and study-abroad experiences; and of course, Bison fever for our thriving athletic teams.

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

We encourage you to visit the Nichols campus. Come see and feel what sets us apart from other business colleges and experience the exciting and innovative ways our students are preparing for their future.

Go Books! Go Bison!
