Where innovation leads the future of business

Our grads work in industries from manufacturing to banking. They've served as chief information officer for global chemical maker BASF and as vice presidents for Hershey's and BB&T bank. Like you, upon graduation they wanted a job or entry into grad school. Gaining skills that all businesses need—skills in accounting, marketing, IT, and management — is a great strategy to land a job in any field. You can acquire this skill set at AU's College of Business.

Common Core

Your concentration may be financial economics, but if you work at a firm such as Merrill Lynch, you'll still need to know how the marketing department works. So, whatever your business concentration, you will take 13 core classes that will ensure you receive a well-rounded business education. These classes, which range from Introduction to Financial Accounting to Principles of Marketing, introduce students to the business functions of marketing, accounting, employee management, and manufacturing.

Your future

Our graduates work in Fortune 500 companies, small to medium businesses, and non-profits, performing functions from management to marketing. Whether your dream job is running a church or a national chain, your business education will give you the know-how to help it run effectively. After graduating from the College of Business, which is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs, you'll be able to serve organizations in the following capacities:

  • Managing people
  • Communicating effectively
  • Marketing a service or product
  • Performing accounting functions
  • Creating efficient processes
  • Leading and serving others
