Majors

The courses you’ll complete as part of your major will deepen your business knowledge and provide a foundation of skills and experience for your future career. By the end of your second year, you can choose your major. This choice largely dictates your course options during your final years of study, and often aligns closely with your career aspirations.

Not sure which major to choose?

That's OK—you don't have to choose a major right away. You'll have time to discover your strengths and interests through Core Courses, clubs, visiting speakers, and project opportunities. Your professors, the deans, and the career development department are also on hand to help you decide on the major that is best aligned with your goals. You’ll also have the choice of focusing on General Business, which means that you don’t declare a major.

Minors

Or perhaps you want to combine a major in Entrepreneurship with a minor in Computer Science to help you jump-start your bold idea for an app and future business.
