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 building blocks of business
Hult knows that the students who get the most out of their specialist subjects are the 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 from which to decide their concentration and choose their more advanced courses.
Hult is ranked by the Financial Times as the best business school in the world for the international experience its students
receive—and this experience starts right at the very beginning. In their Business Fundamentals classes students will work in teams with people from across the globe, so they must rapidly understand 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 to a new continent without missing a beat.
In their first two years, Hult undergraduates take required Business Fundamentals courses in subjects ranging from macroeconomics to marketing. At the end of their second year students enroll in the Career Development Workshop. This is an Action Project where they begin to learn, through coaching and mentoring, where their particular talents lie. Students also interview real working professionals in diverse careers to find out about the day-to-day highs and lows of their jobs. Undergraduates’ growing self awareness empowers them to choose the specialist concentration within their degree that is right for them.
In their final two years, students complete the Business Fundamentals curriculum by taking two advanced seminars that force them to think on a large scale: Business and the World Economy, and Global Strategy.
