The major’s rigorous 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.
