BEO Concentration

 

Students first complete a set of courses that provide a foundation for further study in one of three tracks.  This platform offers a strong and cohesive knowledge base of the basic principles and approaches of organizational theory, economics, engineering and technological innovation, and entrepreneurship and management.  Building on this multidisciplinary base, students then focus their course of study on one of the following tracks: 1) business economics, 2) organizational studies, or 3) technology management and entrepreneurship. Upon completion of all concentration requirements, students receive the Bachelor of Arts (A.B.) degree in Business, Entrepreneurship and Organizations.

Foundation Courses

All students are required to complete two courses in Economics, two in Sociology, two in Engineering, a Math course, and a Statistics course which together form the foundation of the BEO concentration. All foundation courses must be complete prior to taking the senior capstone.
