Undergraduate Program

The School of Business at William Carey University provides each student the opportunity for personal development through an understanding of the business within the framework of a Christian institution of higher learning. Built on a comprehensive liberal arts foundation in the humanities, sciences, communications, mathematics, and religion, the business programs are designed to develop the intellectual, spiritual, and social dimension of each student.

A maximum of 50% of community/junior college hours may be applied toward an undergraduate business degree. Since many business students transfer to Carey after completing one or two years of study at a junior college or other state school, the faculty and staff are helpful to students in making successful transitions to a four-year college.

The School of Business Programs

The School of Business delivers a major designed to provide a degree of specialization as well as a basic understanding of business and its role in a free enterprise system. Class sizes are usually less than 30 students and are less than 20 in many upper division courses. Such small classes motivate students to be more active participants in the learning process and to develop better communication skills within the classroom environment.

The Business Administration undergraduate major requires the completion of a professional business core in addition to a concentration.
Six areas of concentration are available:

  • Accounting Concentration
  • Computer Information Systems Concentration
  • Finance/Economics Concentration
  • International Business Concentration
  • Management/Marketing Concentration
  • Workforce Training and Development Concentration

The Cross Cultural Business Management undergraduate major requires the completion of 48 hours of business courses and 30 hours of Intercultural Studies courses. Students who major in CCBM will be equipped with the necessary business skills to enter the private sector as well as the theological, missiological, and cultural knowledge necessary to be a career missionary.
