A Business degree from Rosemont college can prepare you for a range of exciting careers--everything from marketing to sports management to finance. Rosemont offers undergraduate degrees in six different fields:
As our economy grows increasingly digitized and global, businesses are becoming more complex and need ethically grounded decision-making that cuts across boundaries and countries. You must be able to integrate knowledge, judgment, and strategic planning skills to be successful. That’s why Rosemont focuses not just on core subjects such as finance or marketing, but really digs into how to develop strategies and work with employees in a way that benefits the company, its partners, employees, and society. Business majors at Rosemont practice applications of ethics, social responsibility, and technological tools in business that will prepare you to lead.
Why Study Business at Rosemont?
Rosemont Business majors get an interdisciplinary education in modern business strategies and approaches, preparing them for a wide range of career options. Woven throughout all the business programs is a strong focus on ethical leadership, decision-making, and social responsibility that gives students much more than an understanding of how business operates; it also gives you a roadmap of how to make a positive impact in the business world.
Rosemont Business students all participate in experiential learning opportunities which can include an internship or time studying abroad, designed help you apply classwork to real-world opportunities and broaden your perspective. You will also take the Senior Seminar, a capstone experience meant to give each student the chance to apply the skills and knowledge that you’ve developed over the course of your education to a project that demonstrates your understanding of the coursework.
