“The Division of Business at Eastern Nazarene College is thrilled at the prospect of collaborating with the QCI and Quincy Chamber of Commerce to expand opportunities for business students in the form of networking, internships, a pitch competition and other practical learning experiences and projects. Sharing the same building allows for a fluid transfer of knowledge and opportunities.” – Elizabeth Buckley, Chair of the Division of Business, Eastern Nazarene College.
