The Frost School of Business offers a bachelor of science in administration with a choice of concentrations: accounting, finance, or management. We also offer the traditional liberal arts bachelor of arts in economics. To ensure a firm conceptual and quantitative foundation, all majors complete classes in basic economic principles, accounting, statistics, finance, management, and marketing. This blend of courses is important because our graduates are likely to be involved as team members in all phases of a business operation.
