The Pre-Business program gives you time to make an informed choice. After completing eight required courses, you will be ready to select the major that is right for you. As a Pre-Business major, advisors in departments of Accounting, Economics and Finance, Management, and Marketing will help guide your decision. If you have any questions about the five business majors, you may contact the chairperson of that department to discuss which major is best for you.
Many students choose to dual (double) major in two business disciplines. For instance, you can major in Accounting and Finance; Management and Accounting; or Marketing and Finance. A dual major can improve your job prospects after graduation. Students who major in two business disciplines and plan carefully can still graduate in four years.
If you decide to dual major in a business discipline and another major outside the business program, it may take you more than four years. Students interested in going to law school might major in Economics and Political Science. Students interested in a career in the FBI might major in Accounting and Criminal Justice. If you are considering a second major outside of the business programs, you should talk with advisors in both departments early in your program.
