BUSINESS AND ECONOMICS (B.A.)
At St. Andrews, you are not simply told about the world of business, you experience it. Whether it’s writing a marketing plan, developing a proposal for venture capital or trying to beat the pros in the stock market, your business classes will give you a “hands-on” feel for the business world and the valuable experience you need for success.
The St. Andrews business degree is flexible, so that after completing the business core, you have a choice of concentrating in one of five areas of study: accounting, economics, finance, management or marketing. Or you could choose to major in business with a specialized program of study in Equine Business Management, Therapeutic Riding Business Management, Sports Management or International Business. You also are welcome to design your own program of study (in consultation with your advisor) such as business and Asian Studies, business and Christian Education or museum management, etc. We will do everything we can to tailor your curriculum to ensure your success, whatever your career goals may be.
One of the greatest advantages our program offers is the hands-on experience required in every business class. Writing your own business plans and demographic analyses, designing your own ad campaigns, making your own oral presentations and building your own investment portfolios are invaluable elements of the St. Andrews program, and are rarely offered elsewhere at the undergraduate level.
