The Business Administration program of the Department of Economics & Business provides students with the opportunity to develop fundamental knowledge in economics, accounting, finance, marketing, and management—disciplines essential to a career in management. Within the college’s liberal arts environment, the program develops competency in business management while stressing critical thinking and analysis, as well as technology, writing and oral communication skills. Washington & Jefferson College offers students practical experience as part of the Small Business Center.
Students can personalize and focus their studies with emphases in entrepreneurship, accounting, finance, marketing, operations analytics, human resource management and international business. Learn more about these emphases in the W&J Course Catalog.
