Business and Management
Offered by the Economics department.

This is not business as usual.

Our programs in business and management are an invitation to re-think business, management and education. We offer a major and a minor that ask you to go beyond the basics of finance, accounting and marketing with the breadth and depth of the liberal arts. In Wheaton’s Business and Management Program, you will learn business and also actually apply what you learn.

Through our concentrations, you will focus your studies in an area of interest. Explore international business. Consider corporate social responsibility. Examine the integration of business practices into non-profit organizations. Balance the demands of today’s marketplace with the need for a sustainable future. Tap into the emerging fields of data analysis and new media communications.

And to put it all together, you will also apply classroom learning to the workplace through real consulting projects with for-profit and non-profit organizations, and internships. An approved Internship experience is a requirement of every Business and Management Major – though many students undertake multiple internships while in college. Career Services at the Filene Center can help you connect with internships and job opportunities.
