Program Highlights

  • Business Administration is one of the most popular majors at W&L. We offer small classes (usually 16 to 22 students) by professors who are enthusiastic about teaching undergraduate students.
  • Our courses are innovative and experiential, often involving group projects and oral presentations in class.
  • Our professors have "open door" policies and are available to students throughout each day. Quality teaching is unquestionably our highest priority.
  • Business Administration majors take courses in accounting, economics, statistics, business law, marketing, finance, organizational behavior, and strategic management, as well as electives in these areas. Students interested in finance take such electives as investments, multinational business finance, and cases in corporate finance. Students interested in computers and technology take such electives as management information systems, multimedia design and development, computer forensics and e-commerce.
  • We also offer electives in business ethics, human resources management, cross-cultural issues in management, negotiations, entrepreneurship, and marketing communications.
  • Our students enhance their education through summer internships, study abroad, and on-campus contact with prominent business leaders.
  • Our well-placed network of W&L alumni is used extensively in opening doors for students.
