Our Nine-course Core Curriculum Provides the Fundamental Knowledge Base You Need
You begin taking core courses during our special summer quarter for first-year students, which allows you to find your academic footing before recruiting gets into full swing in fall quarter. Also, you are able to customize your core experience by sequencing your marketing and finance courses and start taking electives in WINTER QUARTER of the first year according to your preference. This can help you attain your individual career goals and balance out the core workload according to your skills and interests.
Your Second Year
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. They synthesize everything you've learned in the classroom and 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.
