The business and management major includes ten core courses plus a three-course concentration and pre-approved internship to provide students with an understanding of the field’s main areas as well as the skills to apply academic knowledge in real-world settings.
The core courses span the range of introducing the fundamentals of management; developing a knowledge base in areas such as microeconomics, macroeconomics, marketing, statistics, and accounting; enhancing understanding of organizational behavior; and applying principles of ethics. An internship in an organization will enhance the student’s classroom work and be incorporated into the capstone seminar, which allows the student to integrate learning from throughout the major.
Each student will choose a concentration of three additional courses that, in the tradition of the liberal arts, will encourage students to explore the connections between business management and the larger questions raised by cultural, economic, historical, political, and social contexts. The three-course concentrations offer business majors an area of emphasis. The concentrations are broad and flexible enough to allow students to develop their own perspective on the world of organizations.

As a Business and Management major, you will be required to participate in at least one internship experience as part of the requirements for the major. The required internship will connect to your concentrations and expand your understanding of business and management. The internship that counts towards this requirement must be approved by the program coordinator in advance. Prerequisites before you participate in the required internship:
