No matter the degree, a diploma from Bloomsburg means business.

Bloomsburg University was founded on the belief that opportunity is created by the people who are determined to achieve more. And that’s how we live, learn, and teach today. You’ll see this belief exemplified in our students, demonstrated by our faculty and staff, and validated by employers looking for someone who can make an impact.

Since its inception in 2011, the Zeigler Institute for Professional Development (ZIPD) has served nearly 9,000 business students through its annual ZIPD Business Conference where you get the opportunity to network, connect, and interact with successful business professionals, many of whom are alumni. The 2019 conference alone provided over 1,500 Huskies the opportunity to meet and learn from more than 106 business professionals.

You’ll have the opportunity to sharpen your skills in our specialized hubs for professional development like the Giuffre Center for Supply Chain Management, the Benner-Hudock Center for Financial Analysis, and the Professional Sales Lab. You’ll develop a competitive advantage as you participate in the Zeigler Institute for Professional Development (ZIPD). And you’ll do all this BEFORE an internship, MBA, or landing a job.
