Launch Your Business Career in Geneva
About half of our students at Webster University Geneva are business majors. We will prepare you to join the professional world through a well-rounded curriculum that is tailored for you.
You will begin with a rigorous program of core business courses, including accounting, economics, business law, and management theory, for example. These courses will give you the academic foundation you will need to move into advanced-level course work. You can choose from different program tracks:
The Bachelor of Arts in Management has a stronger focus on human resources, marketing and organizational behavior, with the option for an academic Emphasis or Certificate in Marketing.
The Bachelor of Science in Business Administration is a more technical program option; it allows you to combine the qualities of both the Management major and our Finance major.
These two programs share common courses early in the program, so you can choose the path which interests you. Whichever path you choose, you’ll enjoy small classes taught by dynamic professionals who are leaders in their fields. You will learn through engaging group work and case studies that will help you understand the practical applications of the theoretical models you have studied.
You will be able to combine elective courses to add additional skills or qualifications from a range of Minors and Certificates to your bachelor degree. Our Career Services team will also be ready to support you if you want to pursue an internship during your studies.
