All Hult undergraduates take a set of Business Fundamentals courses in their first and second years. These courses cover core business areas and build a firm foundation of knowledge that helps students choose a subsequent concentration.
The core of your business degree
Hult knows that students who get the most out of their specialist subjects are those students who have first learned the basics of business thoroughly. As they progress through their Bachelor degree, students can see how the functional areas of business fit together, and which ones are most suited to their interests and abilities. By exposing our students to the full range of disciplines, the Business Fundamentals curriculum creates a platform for students decide which concentration and advanced courses they would like to pursue.
Hult International Business School is ranked by the Financial Times as one of the top 5 business schools in the world for international experience our students experience, and this experience starts right at the very beginning. In the Business Fundamentals classes, students work in teams with people from across the globe, so they must rapidly learn how to communicate forcefully but diplomatically within radically different cultures. After studying in this atmosphere, Hult graduates are better prepared than others to work at multinationals, or to switch careers and continents without missing a beat.
In their first two years, Hult undergraduates take required Business Fundamentals courses in subjects ranging from macroeconomics to marketing. Undergraduates’ growing self-awareness empowers them to choose the electives that are right for them, which can lead them to their concentration.
In their final two years, students complete the Business Fundamentals curriculum by taking two advanced classes that force them to think on a large scale: Business and the World Economy and Global Strategy; and a third advanced class that tests their management and communication skills: Team and Consulting Skills.
