Centre’s economics and business curriculum along with the pre-M.B.A. program are designed to maximize the probability that our best students will be admitted to the top M.B.A. programs in the country.
Students who think they may want to work in either the for-profit sector, the not-for-profit sector, or any administrative branch of local, state, or federal government should consider getting an M.B.A.
There is no single type of preparation required for the best M.B.A. programs. Backgrounds that are suitable preparation are as varied as the industries and the jobs in which an M.B.A. may apply his or her skills. Centre grads are among the country’s brightest and have the strong communication, analytical, and technical skills sought by the top graduate schools and professional programs.
The pre-M.B.A. curriculum at Centre College consists of courses in accounting, computing, econometrics, investments, macroeconomics, managerial and corporate finance, mathematics, and microeconomics. Any rigorous and analytical major at Centre is good preparation for an M.B.A.
