Gain the Skills and Experience Necessary to Serve in Diverse Roles within Organizations
Many companies today require employees to manage a wide variety of programs across the business enterprise that require a robust, varied educational experience. As an integrated business major at UCF, you’ll focus on the critical business processes that cross industries and the transferable skills that can be applied to diverse roles. Your coursework will prepare you for life outside of the classroom, including how to interview well, fit seamlessly into organizations, as well as gain the knowledge, skills and abilities for career advancement.
Although fully face-to-face, the integrated business program uses a unique flipped classroom approach in which you’ll engage with subject matter content online prior to coming to class. There are no textbooks; all content is curated by course instructors using a variety of open source materials and material acquired through campus licenses. There are also no lectures. Instead, team-based, active learning is employed in each of your classes every day. Your instructors will serve as your consultant, coach and mentor as you apply content to solve realistic business problems. You will graduate with both a broad understanding of business and strong financial, analytic and communication skills. Your learned experience in the major will not only help you land your first job after graduation, it will help prepare you for your next job and the one to follow.
