The career paths within business are excitingly diverse. Whether you are a "words person" or a "numbers person," an introvert or extrovert, a strategist or a tactician--we can help find a fit for your unique combination of strengths and career ambitions.
The Business Major
The BSP's major is designed for students who are committed to pursuing a robust education in business. Majors complete 11 courses in the general areas of statistics, economics, and business, and round out their education with traditional liberal arts requirements.
Add a Concentration
Business majors can enhance their degree by focusing on one of six areas of concentration: Finance, Management, Marketing, Analytics, International Business, or Technology and Design Management.
Students who pursue a concentration take 3-4 additional required courses. These additional requirements are purposefully chosen by BSP faculty with career experience in the area of concentration and are designed to bolster specific high-value capabilities. Concentration courses are often drawn from outside the business curriculum, and include such areas as Computer Science, Engineering, Anthropology, Political Science, and Psychology.
The Business Minor
For students who plan to pursue careers outside the traditional business disciplines, but may want to augment their skills, the business minor is an excellent option. A business minor requires six courses in the business curriculum and one in economics. Formal concentrations are not available to business minors; however, the BSP faculty, in combination with the Levett Career Center can help students choose electives that support specific career goals.
BSP majors and minors who hold a 3.0 GPA at the conclusion of Fall Term, Junior year are eligible for a paid project-based internship. Our dedicated resources work closely with candidates to secure an internship that reflects and builds upon their career interests. A successful internship is the crowning stroke of the BSP program, establishing Scholars as not only well educated, but real-world experienced.
