READY to succeed and lead.
All business programs at Carthage utilize the College’s proprietary READY™ curriculum design. “READY” stands for “Real-world Experience and Developing You.” This student-centered philosophy means you won’t just study the theories of business. Every professor brings business experience into the classroom through multiple real-world projects and simulations, and through curriculum embedded with industry-standard software. You will develop the ability and enthusiasm to work in the dynamic global conditions of the 21st century.
Carthage strives to create a learning environment that produces graduates who have top skills and knowledge in current business practices but also enduring analytical, communication, and critical thinking skills to be lifelong learners, advance in their careers, and contribute to the global community.
To achieve this mission, Carthage business students must:
- Demonstrate knowledge of business terminology and theories, both in general business and specific to their subject specialties.
- Be able to select and apply appropriate technology for analysis, research, and presentation.
- Work as effective members of a team.
- Demonstrate critical thinking skills in decision-making and problem-solving.
- Demonstrate appropriate oral and written communication skills.
These abilities are developed through the College’s majors, minors, electives, and experiential learning opportunities.
Coming in 2022: School of Business and Economics
Carthage will open a School of Business and Economics in 2022, bringing together Carthage’s distinguished faculty in accounting, finance, business design and innovation, marketing, sports management, and economics — as well as the renowned A.

This holistic approach to business education will foster greater collaboration across disciplines, expand hands-on learning opportunities for students, and pave the way for new programs and partnerships in emerging fields and industries.
