Barney School of Business Majors
Students learning

If business is your passion but you're unsure which field to major in then start by enrolling in general business courses at Barney. The global nature of business, together with the rapid pace of change in today’s world, necessitates the broad understanding that a liberal arts foundation brings. 

Coupled with knowledge of business concepts and tasks, Barney students are required to take classes in the common core of business courses, including accounting, economics, information technology, insurance, finance, management, marketing, and quantitative methods, and then develop a major in one area of specialization.

After you experience our outstanding faculty instruction and ever-evolving curriculum, you can decide which major you'd like to pursue. Barney School of Business offers introductory classes that will expose you to the different elements of each program.

Learn, then decide which passion you will pick.

Barney supported me through providing real life experiences. Running through simulations in classes, constantly having outside corporations come to the school, and the Barney Passport program equips students for the real world. The entrepreneurial skills learned all help me think outside of the box on my work and take various approaches to solving problems. I feel I can approach a problem by looking at more perspectives learned in my classes.
