Students earning business degrees develop strong communication, critical thinking, and data analysis skills that help prepare them for demanding business careers. The applied learning requirement for all business majors prior to graduation provides students with the opportunity to learn about the business world firsthand, develop their business skills, and gain experience that employers seek when hiring recent college graduates. Internships, directed faculty research, or studying abroad through the Global Viewpoint class are offered in the department.
What student research opportunities are available?
Several courses offer students research opportunities where students work closely with faculty members.
Do students present research findings at conferences?

The Craig School of Business offers students the opportunity to explore the business world and culture of a foreign country through their Global Viewpoint course, where a semester-long study of a country culminates in a two- to three-week visit there. In the past, students have travelled to Germany, England, Finland, Sweden, Poland, New Zealand, Ecuador and Turkey.
