What we offer

Business Integrated Studies gives you the ability to create a degree program that best suits your individual career interests. This is accomplished by integrating two different business areas offered by the College of Business rather than just choosing one major area.

The two areas are chosen in consultation with your academic advisor, who will provide assistance the entire time you’re in the program. Examples of potential combinations include:

  • Economics with accounting
  • Entrepreneurship with strategic management
  • Information technology with finance
  • Management with financial services
  • Marketing with human relations
  • Residential property management with marketing or entrepreneurship

It’s also possible to choose international business as one of your two areas. You’ll enroll in international business courses while honing your foreign language skills through a careful selection of coursework. In addition to completing required courses, you can earn academic credit through select, approved internships and study abroad opportunities.

Our faculty members are dedicated teachers and nationally recognized professionals with a “learn today, apply tomorrow” classroom philosophy. They also remain current on issues through their research.
