Our business and accounting program is recognized as one of the most
comprehensive among liberal arts colleges. You don't just learn how a business functions, or crunch numbers. As a major in our department, you learn how to communicate in teams and make effective business decisions. You learn how to lead.
With degree programs in business administration and accounting, our curriculum ensures your career will never be restricted to one area. Sure, if you're interested in becoming a certified public accountant, you can focus on accounting. But at Furman, you'll also gain a working knowledge of finance, marketing and operations by enrolling in our Business
Core Block. This program will ensure that you have the analytical and strategic skills necessary to succeed in any environment.
Founded on the central principles of the liberal arts, our program also
allows you to pursue your wide-ranging interests and ideas—and
still receive an comprehensive business education. You’ll explore
how business and accounting are connected to other disciplines, and see things from
multiple perspectives. And by the time you graduate, we’ll transform you
into a first-rate problem solver, one who thinks deeply and develops
creative solutions to complex problems.
Whether you're interested in working for a Fortune 500 company or a non-profit organization, our integrative program will help you discover what it takes to be successful in any endeavor. Learn with us.
Six out of 10 Furman graduates are working in some business-related field, including marketing, accounting, finance and public relations. That's because a liberal arts degree is in high demand no matter what you do in the
work force. In addition to enhancing your technical skills, you’ll leave
Furman knowing how to think critically, how to learn, how to see things
from multiple perspectives and how to evaluate and create. These are
skills that can be applied to any career and it’s part of the reason our
graduates are so successful. If you're interested in pursuing a graduate degree, our alumni have been accepted to the top graduate-level and MBA programs in the nation.
