Nichols College

Learn. Lead. Succeed

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 of our majors build. A highlight of our curriculum is an extensive focus on leadership, which fulfills our motto, Learn. Lead. Succeed.

As you browse this 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 supportive and mentoring environment; highly qualified faculty; a campus landscape that expands each year with new state-of-the-art buildings and improved facilities; 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.

After you have 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 the exciting and innovative ways our students are preparing for their futures.
