The Miller College of Business offers a broad range of majors in business, including the nationally ranked entrepreneurship and finance programs. The college’s programs are accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business(AACSB), and the college was the first state-supported institution in Indiana to hold separate AACSB accreditation for the accounting program.
The college was recently ranked among the top 10 percent of business schools in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. It is home to the Center for Professional Selling, which was recently certified by the Professional Society for Sales and Marketing Training for its high educational standards.
If you are considering a major in business, you should pursue a strong college preparatory curriculum in high school, including four years of both English and math. High school business courses are not required for admission into business programs.
Before specializing in a specific major, you will begin your studies at Ball State with a group of courses common to all business majors, including math, accounting, economics, information systems, and management courses. This allows you to gain a broad perspective of business, offers greater flexibility, and gives you time to select the major that is the best fit for your interests and goals. During your junior year, you will select your area of specialization and take courses specific to your major.
