School of Business - Undergraduate Programs

In this Section

Curricula

The program’s first two years are designed to provide flexibility so students are exposed to a variety of courses. You will have formal and informal opportunities to learn about our majors, minors and career opportunities so that you can make a good decision about choosing an academic path in which you are interested. The courses students take are virtually identical for all School of Business students during those first two years, so you do not need to decide on your major until the end of your sophomore year. New freshmen who enroll as undecided business majors are considered to be fully matriculated in the School of Business. Within the first two years, students will select a specific program of interest. 

We have undergraduate integrated majors that result in the Bachelor of Science degree: 

We also offer a range of minors including Economics, Law Studies, and Project Management. These are all explained below. All Bachelor of Science degree candidates must successfully complete the Clarkson Common Experience, all requirements of their major and 120 credits. Additionally, all Bachelor of Science degree candidates must complete an international educational experience and an internship.
