Business


Return to Programs by Area:  Majors and Minors Return to: Programs by Area: Majors and Minors

The business major at Saint Anselm College is designed to provide students with a solid grounding in the disciplines that underpin decision-making in organizations: economics, accounting, management, marketing, and finance.  Exposure to each of these disciplines provides a multifaceted-perspective on how a business functions, and what it takes to be a successful contributor in that work environment.  After graduating with a business degree, our students go to work for large and small companies and non-profit organizations. Some start their own businesses and others pursue graduate degrees.

 

Requirements for the Business major:  Principles of Micro- and Macroeconomics (EC141, EC142), Business Statistics (BU121), Cost and Financial Accounting (AC111, AC112), Human Resource Management (BU221), Principles of Marketing (MK231), Financial Management (FI261), International Business Management (BU272), and 1 elective within the Economics and Business department.
