Business Acumen

The goals of the Huntsman School acumen are to:

  • Introduce key business disciplines including accounting, finance, leadership, marketing, and operations.
  • Examine the broader economic, legal, and social context within which business activity occurs.
  • Develop important quantitative, information technology, and communication skills used by decision makers.

The acumen provides the platform upon which students can develop specific skills and competencies offered by the School's seven majors and fourteen minors.
