Our students experience business in a variety of different ways. With Bachelors of Science programs in Business Administration and Accounting, our students prepare for careers in a variety of different types of businesses. Students majoring in Business Administration further concentrate their career preparation in at least one of the five focus areas: Entrepreneurship, Economics and Finance, Management, Marketing, and Management Information Systems. All Accounting and Business Administration students also undertake a one-semester internship to help them prepare for the transition from education to career. Interns have been placed in more than 20 counties within North Carolina, as well as in several additional states. The DBE also boasts a state of the art finance lab with dual-screen trading positions just like those in trading rooms in major corporations. Students interested in banking will be pleased to know that the software taught in our banking classes is the same American Bankers Association software used in major banks.
Our faculty prides itself on getting to know our students. With a smaller class size (average 14:1), students interact frequently with faculty members and are afforded the opportunity to work with faculty closely through both extracurricular activities and on various research and service learning projects.
