The Thomas College of Business and Economics offers the Bachelor of Science degree with a major in either Accounting or Business Administration. Business Administration majors must choose a track in Business Analytics, Economics, Entrepreneurship, Finance, International Business, Management, or Marketing. Students who want to study more than one track must successfully complete all requirements for each, plus, at least 12 additional unduplicated hours for the second track. A minimum of 50% of the semester hours in the Business major must be taken at UNCP.
The basic core of business studies emphasizes the broad background needed for successful competition in the dynamic work‑world as well as preparation for further study in graduate programs. Another objective is to render service beyond the University and within the surrounding business community.
Through evening and online degree programs the Thomas College of Business and Economics serves students who are unable to attend daytime classes. Further assistance is supplied in placement services and special consultation to the business community at large. The BSBA and MBA programs are also offered through a combination of on-site and online courses on satellite campuses at Sandhills Community College, Richmond Community College, and Fort Bragg.
