From day one, not only will you dive deeply into your major or concentration, you’ll also work with students from other disciplines, simulating what you will experience in the workplace. You will interact with Kanbar College design and engineering students and others from across the campus, challenging each other to use creativity as well as analytics to conceive of new, valuable, market-driven products and services. Our curricula focus on sustainable innovations that improve customers’ lives; people, planet and profit make up the bottom line. As you earn your degree, you’ll benefit from unique advantages such as study abroad, internships with regional business, and collaboration on projects with industry leaders to build valuable connections that can last a lifetime.
By design, our business major is a liberal-arts-infused, professional education for entrepreneurial thinkers who want to create valuable, market-driven innovation.
