Choosing a Major

During the first two years, students engage in a process of exploration and discovery leading to the choice of a major at the end of their sophomore year. From their introductory business courses, they begin to sense which business subjects hold the strongest appeal for them. Conversations with their advisor or favorite faculty members, and with fellow students, also help to clarify their interests. Some students talk to corporate representatives at annual campus career fairs or at "Meet the Firms" nights, and others travel to business offices on field trips arranged by the business clubs. We also suggest that students visit the Career Center on campus where they can utilize self-assessment tools and other resources to help them determine the best major for them.  Based on these experiences, students eventually select one of seven business majors:
