REQUEST INFO

At Carthage, all business programs follow the College’s proprietary READYTM (Real-world Experience and Developing You) curriculum. Professors embed practical projects and industry- standard software in their classes.

Carthage finance students merge that knowledge with a thorough understanding of theories (general business and specific to their specialties). They learn to select and apply appropriate technology for analysis, research, and presentation; learn to work effectively as members of a team; and demonstrate critical thinking in decision making and problem solving.
