How We Do Business

Our business students are immersed in real-world business education that puts them on the fast track to management success.

In their first year on campus, all management majors can kick start their education with courses covering:

  • Business communication
  • Business intelligence
  • Financial accounting

  • Entrepreneurship
  • Globalization

Tackling key concepts early means they’re prepped with the skills and confidence to land their first internship quick—opening more chances to gain more experience before graduation.

By senior year, the Action Learning capstone, a real-life consulting project, pushes students to use their creativity, leadership skills and concrete business knowledge to solve actual organizational challenges. Major clients like FedEx and Cleveland Clinic seek out Weatherhead student teams for analysis and recommendations to improve their organizational processes, grow their business and develop social media marketing strategies.
