Why Business and Technology?
Simply because technological change continues to transform business, we believe that the best career opportunities will belong to the people who understand both business, and technology.
The Bachelor of Science in Business is a 124 credit program that can be completed in four years. Concentration options include: Accounting, Management Information Systems, Marketing, Finance, International Business and Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
As a business major at NJIT, you can combine an outstanding traditional business curriculum with the opportunity to gain critical insights into technologies that, increasingly, are the foundation of thriving industries and economies around the world. The business core provides fundamental business knowledge with courses in accounting, finance, marketing, law and ethics and strategic management. In addition, students gain technological knowledge in management information systems, business software platforms, and technological innovation.
Before junior year, and after taking introductory courses in the business core, students choose a concentration area, and must complete 15 credits within the chosen field. Students are encouraged to discuss their options with their academic advisor and professors to help them decide which option is in line with their career plans.
There are many opportunities for internships and cooperative education. As early as sophomore year, students are encouraged to apply the skills and concepts learned in the classroom to real world business situations through internships and co-op experiences. NJIT business students are working at a wide-variety of companies from multinational firms, to non-profit organizations to small business start-ups. Recent co-op partners include Merrill Lynch, NBC, Goldman-Sachs, the ACLU and Colgate-Palmolive. Co-ops can provide academic credit, competitive salaries and outstanding networking opportunities which can lead to full-time positions upon graduation.
Typical Student Projects
Business students have developed and launched a website for the New Jersey Organizational Development Network, worked with faculty to produce multimedia business cases, participated in a stock market simulation outperforming market averages, and competed in a business simulation that required running their own companies. This fall students will work on redesigning the BSB pages of the School of Management website.
