    Why are there Concentrations instead of Majors?

    Concentrations provide students with both the option to focus on one career topic and the flexibility to explore other business areas.  A business major would require a significantly narrower focus (twice as many required topic-specific courses) with fewer student options.  With Concentrations, students may still choose to take all of their business electives in one field.
