I was an engineering major, and my formal business instruction was limited. I realized there was an opportunity for me to learn more about business practices to improve my career options, and the McIntire Business Fundamentals program offered the kind of instruction I was looking for. I was able to learn essential business skills to supplement my engineering and critical thinking skills, and I’m now able to understand corporate decisions on a larger scale.
