  • Marketing
  • International Business
  • New Business Development
  • Management Consulting
  • Other elective options

Degree Requirements

The Business and Enterprise Management major is designed to preserve a generalist business curriculum that fosters a holistic and integrated perspective of business while simultaneously giving students a unique and compelling story to tell about themselves, their aspirations, and their business education. Key curriculum components include a practicum experience consisting of a required internship combined with a reflective overview and personal portfolio component, a professional development workshop series, a capstone leadership experience, a three-course concentration (listed above), and a unique structure for the required organizational behavior and strategic management courses.
