An undergraduate business education at the Whitman School is about far more than traditional academic preparation. We offer unique opportunities for you — in and out of the classroom — that build a rich, individualized educational experience full of real-world preparation and success.
We have your major — or majors.
Choose from accounting, business analytics, finance, management, marketing, supply chain management, real estate, entrepreneurship and retail management. With this breadth of offerings, you’ll develop expertise in your field(s) and have opportunities to explore the business world around you, diversifying your skill set so you can stand out to future employers.
You'll start early.
As a Whitman student, you will begin undergraduate business classes in your first year and complete 12 foundational business core courses — including business analytics, financial and managerial accounting, business law, finance, marketing, supply chain, management, global business and more — by the end of your second year. These classes are taught by accomplished research faculty and seasoned practitioners. This allows you to pursue a double major within the Whitman School or a dual major with the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, College of Arts and Sciences, Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs or the School of Information Studies, significantly increasing your marketability to potential employers.
You'll be IMPRESSive to Employers!
In addition to the rigorous educational experience you expect, you will gain the skills and experience employers seek — such as leadership and communication — through the Goodman IMPRESS Program. Using gamification and a four “house” competitive model, you’ll earn points while building skills for career success.
The world is your classroom.
Half of Whitman students study abroad, and 100% complete at least one internship. Additional experiential learning opportunities are provided through student clubs, career exploration trips, the Whitman Semester in NYC program, client projects, an entrepreneurially focused student business hub, 11 Bloomberg terminals and the student-run Orange Value Fund of $5.5 million.
