A degree in business prepares you to be an effective decision-maker and leader in both the private and public sectors through a strong practical business education as well as a comprehensive liberal arts education.
As a business major, you’ll concentrate in accounting, finance, marketing, or management. All these programs will strengthen your skills in critical thinking, problem solving, effective communication, flexible managerial perspective, and information technology. A capstone internship connects you with companies in New York City to give you hands-on experience.
Our alumni work in areas such as banking, brokerage firms, corporate financial management, international business, securities market operations, marketing research, advertising, sales, management, and management information systems in both small and large companies.
