Do Great Work in Business at Gettysburg College
Gettysburg College’s Business, Organizations & Management major reaffirms the core of a liberal arts and sciences education: critical thinking, rigorous inquiry, and knowledge acquisition.
Within the Business, Organizations & Management major, students rely on a critical managerial perspective for understanding and analyzing the evolving relationships of businesses with local, national, and global constituencies.
The major’s curriculum fosters the development of a strong background in microeconomics, accounting, organizational behavior, statistics, research methods, marketing, and ethics. It also provides opportunities to critically analyze topics such as business law, entrepreneurship, finance, organizational culture, systems thinking, and policies and strategies. Students may combine their Business major with another major or minor such as Economics, International Affairs, Mathematical Economics, Public Policy, and more.
Aspiring leaders who graduate from Gettysburg College have the expertise to be highly competitive in a variety of fields, including business, government, the nonprofit sector, and any other organizational environment.
At Gettysburg, learning exists inside and outside the classroom. All students in the Business, Organizations & Management major will complete a Critical Action-Learning Experience (an internship, global study experience, or community engagement project) as part of their senior capstone class. This distinctive element encourages students to delve more deeply into their studies.

From launching businesses to working as accountants and management consultants to reaching high-tier roles like CEO, Gettysburg alumni have used the transferable skills of their liberal arts and sciences education to find success in the realm of business.
