Whether you're interested in pursuing a position with a Fortune 500 company or starting your own business, our programs will prepare you for a career in the global marketplace. We offer the bachelor of arts with majors in both accounting and business administration. Both programs blend a signature approach to the liberal arts with a comprehensive business core. That helps us develop well-rounded graduates who can approach complex issues from multiple angles—a real asset in the business world.
As a major in our department, you'll benefit from a curriculum
that relies on experiential exercises and integrated projects to help
you understand the core principles of business management. Our programs offer our students numerous opportunities to work together
on projects, such as helping underprivileged members of the Greenville
community prepare their taxes. But that's
only the beginning. Upon acceptance into the business major, you'll enroll in our Business
Core Block, a set of courses that are similar to what you'd find in an
MBA program. These courses emphasize four functional areas: accounting,
finance, marketing and operations. By gaining insight into each of these
key areas of study, you'll be prepared for a meaningful and lucrative
career. Best of all, you’ll take
these upper-division courses with a small cohort of students. That means you'll have an opportunity to develop enduring relationships that will pay dividends in your professional career.
