How Our Curriculum Is Structured

Our curriculum is designed around core courses that include business, economics, mathematics, and statistics course requirements. Our concentrations allow students to go deep in their specific business area of interest. Courses build on leading business practices while being informed by the innovative research of our faculty.

After your first semester, you will discover that our curriculum is flexible and allows you to maximize your undergraduate studies to achieve your academic goals.
