Business at BSC blends the study of business administration with the in-depth learning of a liberal arts education.
As a student, you will learn to think critically, write effectively, and give a persuasive presentation—all tools you'll need to start your own business or climb the corporate ladder.
Our courses explore ethical decision-making and emphasize international business to prepare you for an ever-changing global marketplace. Alongside business coursework, the department also offers opportunities and resources to meet business leaders, find internships, and launch your own business ideas.
Business administration majors can choose to pursue tracks in finance, marketing, and/or management. Other business department majors include accounting and international business.
