Business degrees: Get a well-rounded education in management, finance, human resources, and organizational performance

Although the "Pine Tree State" has its share of cold winters, the cold temperatures do little to diminish the raw natural beauty that typifies Maine. For such a small state, it manages to pack in an impressive number of hiking trails, camping spots, and fishing holes. Not surprisingly, many students from Maine colleges and universities double as outdoor adventurers as well. A few years at one of the state's many prestigious programs will transform you into a highly skilled backpacker in addition to whatever other disciplines you are pursuing.
