Education

The undergrad program at Brock currently offers bachelor’s degrees in Accounting, Economics, Entrepreneurship, Finance, Management, and Marketing. Additionally, in 2009 the Brock School of Business pioneered the Brock Scholars program. This specialized program allows high-achieving business students to customize their own curriculum when their career goals are outside of the six undergrad majors offered. In the program, students obtain practical business experience and work directly with faculty to achieve their academic and career goals. Graduate programs available include a Master of Business Administration program that is offered both as an evening program or online to help students expand managerial roles. They also offer a Master of Accountancy program that is designed to help students succeed as accountants or advisors in a global business environment.

Joint degree programs are also offered where students can pursue two degrees at the same time with fewer credit requirements than earning them separately.

Executive Education is a unique program offered through the Brock S.o.B. This program strives to “make a difference in the community and in the lives of the people [they] serve.” Classes can be held at Brock School of Business, your company’s location, or any venue of choice. Some of the topics currently offered are Project Management, Communications, Leadership, Finance and Accounting, Operations Management, and Employment Law.

Student Life

To be asked to be a member of any of these honor societies is a huge honor. There are also many student organizations for undergraduates to help them develop their business skills and build relationships.
