The Capstone Business Simulation
As part of the curriculum for senior seminars in accounting, finance, management, management of information technology, and marketing, senior business students participate in a global computer simulation game. They operate a business and make decisions relating to marketing strategy, human resources, sales, and finance.
Our business curriculum is designed to accommodate those students who opt to major in two different areas of business. Most Business major core courses are completed in the student's Freshman and Sophomore years. Courses specific to their dual degrees can then be completed during the Junior and Senior years - allowing students to complete two degrees in the traditional four year period.
