General Business Careers & Internships

We call this our general business major because it is flexible and prepares students for a variety of careers. For example, the Accounting, Economics, and Finance specializations prepare students for careers involving analytics, theories, and quantitative problem-solving. On the other hand, the Management and International Business specializations prepare students for careers that require solid critical thinking and communication skills.

Nichols helps place business students in prestigious internships with companies like Target, Enterprise Rent-a-Car, and Hudson RPM Distributors. You’ll have the chance to network with successful alumni and get your resumé workshopped. By the time they graduate, our students are confident and well-rounded leaders.
