Business Explorations

Because some students may be unsure of their major when they enroll at Johnson & Wales University, the Business Explorations option allows them to pursue a basic business program and general studies, and, within their first year, choose 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.
