Business Administration


Overview & Academics

The BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION major at North Carolina Wesleyan College provides a broad education in business. Students get a well-rounded education in general business policy and strategy, but you’ll also have the flexibility to pursue a particular area of interest in greater depth. You may even decide to add a new concentration in entrepreneurship to your program.

 

ENTREPRENEURSHIP (concentration)

A concentration in ENTREPRENEURSHIP, offered through the Business Administration program, helps students learn to carry out a business idea from start to finish—including conception, finance, development, marketing, and sales. The concentration prepares a student to open their own businesses, develop ideas, and fundraise for future projects.
