Expert, approachable faculty
Our management and marketing professors boast practical experience that stems from employment at CNH, Miller Brewing, SC Johnson, Snap-On, and Motorola. Most faculty offices are located right in the Clausen Center, with an open invitation for students to stop by for discussion.
Carthage’s proprietary student-centered philosophy, the READY™ curriculum design, takes you past the theories of business to develop the best-prepared business students. To implement the READY™ (Real-world Experience And Developing You) promise, every professor brings business experience into the classroom through multiple real-world projects and simulations and curriculum embedded with industry-standard software. You will become fluent in programs like SalesForce.com, SPSS Statistics, Microsoft Project, and Google AdWords.
First-class learning center
The A. W. Clausen Center for World Business prepares students for business leadership in a global economy. You won’t find any large lecture halls; Clausen Center classrooms encourage group discussion. You will develop presentation skills while using the building’s multimedia equipment. The centerpiece is the Troha Boardroom, with all the accoutrements of corporate executive offices and directors’ suites. There, you might make a presentation, engage in a debate with fellow students and professors, or meet with visiting business leaders. Afterward, continue the conversation over a latte at the Starbucks on the first floor.
“As a management and marketing major, you can go any which way into the business world. With all the professors’ experiences and connections, the real world experiences you get in the classroom make your education even more valuable.”
