CORE BUSINESS CURRICULUM

at The Goddard School of Business & Economics
We're with you every step of the way.


All Goddard business programs share a common core of classes, allowing you to:

1. Explore and learn about many different areas of the business world
2. Build skills you'll need regardless of your business specialty

This curriculum format is both functional and flexible, allowing you to change your major (within the business school) up until your last few semesters without losing progress toward your degree.
