Life with meaning.
That’s the literal translation of 生意 (sheng-yi), the Chinese word for business.
And that’s our approach to teaching business management as a liberal art.
We engage students. You’ll share ideas with classmates, work closely with expert faculty, and get your hands on real-world tools like SAP (all our majors learn how to use it). You can invest a half million dollars in socially responsible businesses in the Alex. Brown Fund. And you can learn how to build your own business from the ground up.
If we sound proud of what we do … well, we are! We’ve got the college’s most popular major. Or if you’ve got another full-time passion and just want a concentrated dose of business know-how, we’ve got you covered: we offer great minors and concentrations in Accounting and Finance, Business Management, Global Business, and Information Systems, plus internships that help you get from classroom to career.
You’ll develop the rigorous technical skills that matter for business success—and unleash your inner liberal-arts entrepreneur, honing your drive to explore, imagine, collaborate, and create. (Don’t worry, you’ll still have a bit of time for fun—check out some of our busy, high-achieving students when they’re off the clock).
It’s your dream, and we want you to dream big. We’re here to help you make it real, and create your very own sheng-yi, life with meaning.
