At Wake Forest University, our undergraduate business program is ranked Number 13 nationally by Poets and Quants, a leading business-school publication. We offer expert career coaching from the time at which you begin your business journey. Our strong alumni network of active business leaders is ready to guide and mentor our students. And, while research is important to our professors, faculty members are focused on teaching; they’re here because they enjoy working with students. For all of these reasons, our placement numbers are superlative: 99% of our graduates are employed or in graduate school within six months of graduation.
But at Wake Forest, you can choose your own business adventure.
There are many ways here to build a successful career in business; majoring in business happens to be just one of them. Academic paths beyond a traditional business degree can not only help you achieve the career you desire; they can also be advantageous in helping you stand apart within a competitive market. Entrepreneurship, Economics, Mathematical Economics, Communication with a marketing concentration, Psychology with an emphasis on organizational behavior, and other social as well as natural sciences – not to mention myriad disciplines and combinations within these fields – bring innovative and specialized capabilities that employers seek. Nearly 10,000 Wake Forest non-Business majors have had or have a career in business. Of those, nearly 1,500 have founded, owned, or been partners in a business.
Just ask Storage Scholars founders Sam Chason (WFU ’20) and Matt Gronberg (WFU ’20). Gronberg was a Biology major, and Chemistry and Spanish double minor. He took those critical- thinking and analytical skills into the business world to help launch Storage Scholars – a business now on 23 college campuses and which has served over 7400 customers with college moving and storage solutions.
