Wake Forest University is a 5,200-undergraduate, liberal-arts, test-optional school in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, with an 11:1 student-faculty ratio and more than 45 majors and 60 minors.
And our undergraduate business program in the School of Business is ranked Number 13 nationally in 2021 by Poets and Quants, a leading business-school publication.
What makes our undergraduate business program great?
Well, let us tell you.
Number 1: We offer expert career coaching from the time you begin your business journey. Our placement numbers are terrific: 99% of our graduates are employed or in graduate school within six months of graduation!
Number 2: Our strong alumni network of active business leaders is always at the ready to guide and mentor our students.
Number 3: Our students enthuse about how wonderful our advisors are. They track your progress and will support you along your journey in your School of Business major.
Number 4: While research is important to our professors, faculty members are focused on teaching: they’re here because they enjoy working with students. At Wake – no matter your major – you’ll have small classes, personalized attention, and access to world-class scholars.
Number 5: The various majors from which you may choose within the School of Business include Accounting – our success on the CPA exam is unrivaled – Business and Enterprise Management (BEM) – which allows students to customize their course plan according to their passions and interests, in marketing, international business, new product development, or management consulting (or build-your-own concentration!) – Finance – where you’ll develop technological skills applicable in real-world settings – and Mathematical Business – which prepares our students for careers that require data-analytics-based approaches to problem-solving.
So, to recap, in Wake Forest’s highly ranked School of Business, you’ll build close relationships with students, teachers, career coaches, and alumni, developing business skills that will make you market-ready.
