With a curriculum that spans disciplines from accounting to supply chain management, Elmhurst University’s Department of Business and Economics ensures that you will be ready to take on the world of work—and that you’ll succeed.
Students here don’t just learn the fundamentals of their trade; our liberal arts emphasis ensures that students also develop knowledge of other cultures, an ability to speak and write clearly, and an understanding of the impact of globalization.
You’ll gain not only a comprehensive range of cutting-edge business knowledge and skills, but also the depth, imagination and flexibility required to adapt in the blink of an eye—and thrive.
Our location in the vibrant business corridor of west suburban Chicago leads to numerous internship and field experience opportunities. Our mentoring program brings together teams of students with a business mentor to discuss the practical realities of the business world.
Our Graduate Programs
In addition to our undergraduate programs, we offer three master’s programs: MBA, Project Management, Supply Chain Management, and Industrial/Organizational Psychology. We also offer a degree-completion program for adult undergraduate students in business administration.
How Elmhurst Prepares You For Your Career
Your business experience at Elmhurst will put you on the inside track when it comes to starting your career. By the time you graduate, you will have worked with businesses, taken courses from faculty who wrote the books on their subjects, and perhaps even traveled to see how commerce works in other countries. As an undergraduate, you will have worked in areas usually reserved for graduate students. And that means a lot in terms of getting off to a great start after college.
