In the School of Business, we offer these major and minor areas of study:

  • Business Management (Major & Minor) - Learn how to incorporate all areas of business, inlcuding management, finance, development and more.
  • Marketing  (Major) - Marketers create products, messaging, branding and buzz. If you like to talk about both the sizzle AND the steak, major in Marketing.
  • Communication (Major) - Communication is a dynamic field that explores a range of activity, including face-to-face conversations  and mass approaches like social media and broadcasting.
  • Business Analytics (Minor) -  Business analytics are used in every industry.  Discover how you can be a part of helping businesses create a competitive advantage through data-driven decisions. Learn the tools used to find trends in data, solve problems, and make strategic recommendations within any framework.
  • Broadfield Business (Major) - Coming this fall! You'll be able to pursue concentrations in the areas above and will gain the confidence and skill sets to impact business  from multiple perspectives.

We believe that having multiple interests in both academics and life is what makes us unique. This important relationship and integration between academic interests is the reason why Alverno requires a minor course of study for each major. At Alverno, we call them support areas. It keeps you engaged and offers limitless opportunities to specialize within your chosen field of study.

Management Minors

Students majoring in management choose a minor outside of the School of Business, such as Professional Communication, Computer Studies, Psychology or Humanities. Students can also create their own minor to suit their individual interests and needs. As an Alverno graduate, the specialized abilities that come with each minor provide added flexibility and an increased skillset when entering the workplace. Our minors give you an edge and are intended to broaden and extend learning.
