Discover Business

One of the true hallmarks of the Business Program is flexibility. Students have distinctive opportunities to tailor their business learning experience to their own specific interests and goals through double majors, as well as a variety of minors including communication, health services administration, and finance.

“I chose to get a bachelors in Business with a minor in Criminal Justice because I have always been interested in managing a business, and particularly, working for the state has always been an interest of mine. I really like the atmosphere at Presentation because the students and the staff make you feel like you are at home, no matter where you go, you are welcomed.”
