Dean has forged partnerships with organizations like Kraft Sports + Entertainment, Learfield, Dorel Juvenile and many others. The Center for Business, Entertainment and Sport Management offers one-of-a-kind opportunities to get ahead in a variety of competitive fields. And, the Dean Leadership Institute offers a unique and interactive opportunity for students, alumni and the local community to interact with today's business leaders.

Students also have the opportunity to work on consulting projects for local companies seeking viable solutions to real business challenges. Here's what Scott Martin, Bernon Family Branch Executive at the Hockomock Area YMCA in Franklin, had to say about our students:

"The Bernon Family Branch YMCA has benefited greatly from participating in class projects with business students at Dean College. Students provide our senior staff with creative recommendations for business improvements. Their presentations are professionally delivered, to the point that I learned about new software that I now use to present to groups."
