An undergraduate major in business is a great start to teaching the skills for success in many professions. The business major prepares students for a range of careers such as running their own business, working for a corporation or the government, or managing a non-profit organization. At some point most people need to know how a business works: a lawyer who is asked to be managing partner, a loan officer in a bank, a financial analyst on Wall Street, an actor or athlete who needs a trusted agent. One of the greatest benefits of studying business within a liberal arts environment is the unique combination of courses students take: humanities to fine tune communication; fine arts to encourage creativity; math and science because numbers really do matter; and social sciences to gain insights into human behavior.
Business majors can choose one of six concentrations to reach their career goals: digital marketing, healthcare administration, human resource management, organizational behavior, sport management, or strategic management.
Major: Business Administration
Related Majors: International Business, Advertising and Marketing Communication, and Accounting
Related Minors: Accounting, Economics, Finance
Choose between 3 different degree programs: bachelor of arts, bachelor of fine arts, or bachelor of science in nursing.

All Wesleyan business students complete a professional development portfolio that includes a personal SWOT analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats) - a structured planning method that evaluates those four elements of a project or business venture, and includes an investigation of career opportunities in a chosen field. A SWOT includes general education preparation, creation of a professional resume and traditional letter of application, a Weebly account where students place professional career documents, and a video.
Wesleyan’s business department sponsors lectures featuring prominent leaders in business and government, conferences, seminars, and research that promote entrepreneurship and business career opportunities for women. These activities provide students the chance to discuss significant issues and experiences with successful women from the business community. Study abroad semesters fit into the major’s curriculum as programs in Korea, Ireland, and Spain offer business courses which satisfy required courses in the business major.
