Majors in Business include: Accounting • Financial Economics • Business Management • Marketing
Capital is located in a major metropolitan area, and our professors have strong contacts with leaders of major corporations and small businesses, alike. We continually shape our curriculum based on what they tell us they need in future employees and leaders.
This is what they tell us: They need graduates who are more than just technical experts. They're looking for employees who are adaptable, strong communicators and talented analysts who thrive in complexity. At Capital, you’ll master the broad foundation expected of all business majors — accounting, management, marketing, economics, finance, business law and management information systems. But you’ll acquire that knowledge in a distinctive context that emphasizes the liberal arts — critical thinking, analytical skills, ethical leadership, logic, communication, global and historical context and human interaction, motivation and management in organizational settings. You’ll learn to apply business skills in complex environments.As you learn in the classroom and through internships, whether they’re at a Columbus-based Fortune 500 company or the boutique firm down the street, you’ll take on class projects that pair you with real-world clients, and research projects with your professors. You’ll build your knowledge base, apply your new skills, and refine your leadership and management styles. You’ll learn how to think strategically, to anticipate and adapt to the constant change that characterizes today’s workplace, to manage group dynamics, and to bring out the best performance in your staff and your organization.
Your Capital education will prepare you for an array of career options — for right after graduation and for the career you want 20 years later. You’ll decide whether you want to be your own boss, or someone else’s. Whether your goal is to manage a small shop or a sports team, and whether your calling is leadership in public service, health care, human resources or community service, Capital will prepare you for success in your career and in life. It will also prepare you to continue your education. The Business Management major is ideal preparation for a wide variety of graduate programs including the MBA or law school.
Our professors bring out the best in you. We won't lie. They can be tough. But they're also your counselors, your mentors, and your biggest advocates. Meet a few below, or view our department directory.
