Business Major

The business world is dynamic. By preparing students in the fundamentals of common business practices, and creating challenges that provide opportunities to develop critical thought into action, this program creates in-demand employees and future business leaders.

Our Students

Students majoring in Business can expect:

  • An approach to business education that addresses depth (through specialties such as accounting, marketing, management, and finance) as well as breadth (through a foundation anchored in the liberal arts).

  • A focus on putting the critical thinking skills developed through the liberal arts into action -- in the form of many experiential opportunities, such as internships, off-campus and study-abroad experiences, and others.

  • An exploration into entrepreneurial thinking in and out of the classroom -- through case analyses, simulations, business plan development, and even the actual launching of ventures.

  • An internship component is designed into this major.
