Learn more about the degree
Starting in fall 2024, the Ithaca College School of Business will offer distinct majors in Accounting, Business Analytics, Finance, Marketing, Sport Management, and Strategic Leadership!

These majors include a refined business core as well as the opportunity for greater breadth and depth in your chosen field of study. The shift to stand-alone degrees (rather than concentrations within a broader Business Administration degree) will improve your academic experience and streamline the ways you articulate your knowledge, skills, and credentials.

Real-world Experience

A hallmark of every School of Business degree program is an emphasis on experiential learning. Almost every course has some kind of practical learning opportunities. As a finance major, you'll have access to our Trading Room and state-of-the-art finance software, including live trading simulations. Recent finance students have also interned at major banks and brokerage firms, benefitted from alumni networking opportunities, and attended events such as the Berkshire Hathaway annual shareholders' meeting. Understanding might begin in the classroom, but it flourishes in the real world.
