    You've always had an eye on the business world, haven't you? And why not?  This world continues to offer a range of exciting opportunities…in fields like accounting, finance, marketing and information technology.

    As a business management major, you'll be able to participate in some of those very possibilities. Help write business plans for new companies. Help people complete their individual tax returns. Create Web sites for firms throughout the region. You can also earn money with one of our paid internships. You may get the chance to intern at companies like Zippo Manufacturing Co., Northwest Savings and Smith Barney.

    Then, when you graduate, you'll have solid business experience to put on your resume. This can make the difference in launching a successful career… like many of our alumni. Our graduates are working at Heinz, SONY, Nabisco and Intel. Or, you can take what you're learned here and go to graduate school.
