Focus Your Degree

As a business administration major, you'll choose between four emphases. You have the option to complete two emphasis areas, making you a better qualified job applicant for internships and post-graduate employment opportunities! The core coursework for these areas overlap with other majors offered in the Cofrin School of Business, so you could easily complete a double major by adding a few extra classes.
