Degrees and programs
Commerce today is so highly integrated that graduates need expertise in more than one business discipline. Employers want to know that their incoming finance associates have a command of sales techniques, or that new hires in accounting comprehend the company's overall investment strategy.
To make our graduates as marketable as possible, we allow students to choose not only majors, but also concentrations, specializations and minors that demonstrate proficiency in one or more additional fields.
Think of these as extra layers of specialization that help a student customize his or her Fordham business degree. Click on each below to see the subjects in which they are offered.
Majors represent a student's most significant area of focus and are chosen at the beginning of junior year.
Concentrations allow students who have chosen business administration as their major to add specificity to their degrees. A concentration requires four courses. Students may also pursue a second concentration, which comprises three courses.
Specializations involve three required courses plus an experiential element, such as an internship or study-abroad experience. The most popular is an international business specialization through the G.L.O.B.E. program.
Minors can be done in either a business discipline or any liberal arts subject that Fordham offers, and consist of four courses.
