    • What if I don’t know what to study?
      • It’s okay to be unsure about your area of study! Many students enter the College of Business as “business undeclared,” meaning they know they want to study business, but are not sure which degree in particular. All business students take the same core business classes as an underclassman, which can help students narrow their focus on a specific subject.
    • Which majors can I study at the College of Business?
