The Undergraduate Core Curriculum

In this Section

We’ve designed the first two years of the School of Business undergraduate curriculum to give you both a solid foundation in core business principles and a breadth of experience in multiple business disciplines. During your first four semesters, you’ll learn more about our majors and future career opportunities so that you can plan your academic path at Clarkson. The core curriculum is virtually identical for all School of Business students, except for Engineering & Management majors, who declare their major upon enrollment and follow a slightly different course schedule. All other business students declare a major at the end of their sophomore year.
