Competent

You may not know whether you like accounting or finance, marketing or insurance. We understand and will help you identify the major (and minor if you like) that’s right for you. Your first semester as an undergraduate student, you will take our World of Business (BAR 110) course to learn about all of the different functional areas of business, and how they form the pieces that make a business work. You will begin exploring economic, cultural, ethical and societal aspects of business, and developing problem solving and critical thinking skills through analysis and discussion of cases and current business issues.

As you start to focus on your majors and minors, our industry-experienced professors will make sure you know that subject matter thoroughly. On top of that, you will have plenty of opportunities to gain real-world experience in your chosen career field. These include supervised consulting projects and applied learning courses such as Financial Analysis and Investments where students actively manage over $250,000 of the University’s endowed funds. And every student completes at least one internship in his or her major. You will work with a faculty advisor to find a suitable internship, and then with a supervisor at your host organization who will provide on-the-job training and project assignments.
