Business education at Calvin is about so much more than the bottom line—it’s about a Christian calling to participate in a vital part of society. The Calvin University School of Business programs will give you the courses, real-world learning, and leadership development opportunities to empower you to help create a better world. Your course of study will be customized to meet your interests and prepare you for your career. You will get foundational understanding of business plus in-depth knowledge in one of six majors—Accounting, Finance, Financial Planning, Human Resource Management, Marketing, or Operations and Supply Chain Management. Some of these business majors have also been sized so there is plenty of room to double major or minor in another area of interest.

The School of Business combines courses taught by experienced business professionals with real-world learning opportunities to provide excellent preparation for your career. Calvin’s business programs prepare you for the workplace by tackling actual business problems in courses, internships, networking events, and more.

  • Collaboration in Courses.  Business courses include projects to help real organizations and corporations identify and solve business challenges. You will collaborate with other business students in group activities and team projects to help you develop skills in teamwork, market research, leadership, and public speaking.
  • Internships.  Gain valuable experience by using your developing skills in the workplace.
  • Off-Campus Programs.  Study business in global markets like Hungary, India, China, Europe, and South Korea through semester-long study or short-term trips.
  • Business Activities and Organizations.  Student organizations and School of Business initiatives can help you find your passion and serve God with your business skills. Join groups such as Calvin Startups, HR Club, Knight Investment Management, Marketing Club, Calvin Nexus Peer Financial Coaching, and Women’s Business Network.
  • Networking.  Regular events with members of the thriving West Michigan business community will help you make contacts, develop skills, and discover where God is calling you.

Additionally, the School of Business collaborates with other programs to offer the following majors:
