Substantial Mod: Business Online Program Description
The Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Business is architected to prepare today’s students to be tomorrow's business leaders. The requirements of the business major have been greatly influenced by the needs of the dynamic business community where our students intern and work upon graduation. As a result of conducting focus groups with mid-level managers representing a variety of industries the Notre Dame business major was recently updated to include course work in teamwork, negotiation, leadership, communications, data analysis and business research in addition to the traditional areas of business study which include economics, marketing, management, accounting and finance. Managers from various industries indicated that study in each of these areas was needed to provide graduates with the confidence as well as the knowledge, skills and competencies needed to succeed in their respective organizations.
