Business majors are driven to achieve, so we designed our degree to deliver the coursework you need to succeed while allowing enough space for you to pursue your other academic interests. We know the design works because nearly 60% of our business majors are double-majors/minors.
Prior to admission to the business major, you will work on completing general education requirements, which apply to all UNC students, and prerequisites for admission to the major, many of which satisfy general education requirements.
You may choose to complete up to two areas of emphasis (AOE) as part of your major. AOEs give you the chance to customize your degree based on your interests and desired career trajectory.
