About the major.

The one thing that ties global manufacturing companies, regional health care providers, local nonprofits and individual small business owners together is they all provide value in exchange for value – which at its core is how business is defined. The Mount’s business program will enable you to help any number of organizations in a wide range of capacities.

While in the program, you’ll study material on economics, marketing, information systems, business law, accounting, strategy, corporate finance and social responsibility. This variety of coursework will allow you to pursue careers from consulting to business development to sales and marketing and beyond.

And by studying the Mount’s liberal arts core curriculum, you’ll add depth with courses on communication and philosophy, helping shape you into an ethical leader who is interested in more than just the bottom line.

About the minor.

A business minor is a great complement to virtually any major. Even if you choose a career path that doesn’t involves economics, accounting or finance, having a foundational understanding of how to market a service or stay within a department’s budget is a great skill to have.

There are specific business minors for accounting and economics majors, as well as a third for all other majors. Courses may vary slightly depending on the track, but generally cover accounting principles, information systems, stats and finance.
