The School of Business is an accredited member of AACSB International: the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. AACSB accreditation represents the highest achievement for an educational institution that awards business degrees. Fewer than five percent of the world's business programs have earned AACSB accreditation.

Bachelor of Science programs in Accounting, Business Analytics, Entrepreneurship, Finance, General Business, International Business, Marketing, and Management are offered. In all cases, students fulfill a 40-credit Business core curriculum and also complete courses required for their specific Business major. It is expected that students who complete the BS program will possess skills in critical thinking, oral and written communication, teamwork and ethics. Opportunities are available to complete two Business majors (see "Double Major") or an accelerated graduate degree (see "Business 4+1 BS-MBA"). We also offer an 18-credit minor in Business and a 21-credit minor in Business Analytics.

Admission to the Major: Acceptance as a major in Business is based on overall academic performance and on performance in selected courses. Detailed admission criteria may be obtained from the Office of the School of Business.
