Business Explorations

Effective May 17, 2024 FYS1020 and CAR0010 will no longer be requirements in our undergraduate programs.

Because some students understand their passion, but not how to channel it into a degree program, the Business Explorations option allows them to explore business courses and gain exposure to all aspects of business within their first year before choosing a major from a number of business programs. Students who begin their studies in the Business Explorations program may be eligible to earn a bachelor of science degree at the end of four years of study.
