Our Nine-course Core Curriculum Provides the Fundamental Knowledge Base You Need
You must take all your core courses in your first year, but you do have choices about how you sequence some of them. This is designed to help you attain your individual career goals. While your summer internship may seem far off, the recruiting process will shift into full swing at the very start of the winter quarter, and this flexibility will help you prepare.
When you return for your second year of study, your academic schedule is 100 percent your own design. Your focus is on the elective courses of your choosing. You also complete your Capstone Project. The Applied Management Research and Business Creation Option projects are the most common two-quarter capstone experiences that synthesize everything you've learned in the classroom and they challenge you to apply it in a real-world business setting. You will conduct your AMR or BCO project during fall and winter quarters. For more information on how our signature practical learning experience works, please consult the Capstone Project overview page.
