About the major

Get ready to make a difference. Build your ideas into a small business—or a small business empire. Lead a Fortune 500 company. Market an NFL franchise. Realize your financial goals. Take Wall Street (or Main Street) by storm. The Lundquist College of Business at the University of Oregon can take you where you want to go. Here, you'll join an intelligently informal community of thinkers and doers who are serious, determined, focused, and hands-on.

A degree in business administration is just part of the story. You can pursue a general business focus or choose a concentration in entrepreneurship, finance, marketing, operations and business analytics, or sports business. You can also minor in business administration, entrepreneurship, or sports business. No matter which degree or concentration you choose, the Lundquist College of Business provides a collaborative environment where you will find ample opportunities to try out real-world projects and scenarios, giving you career experience before you even graduate.
