The global economy moves fast. William Peace University helps you keep pace. 

Business majors at WPU earn control of their future by learning the skills valued by today's business leaders. Whether you want to climb the corporate ladder or run your own business, our curriculum prepares you with the critical thinking and analytical skills needed to compete for exciting careers in business. Students learn the latest business theory and have the opportunity to put them into practice with a variety of internships in downtown Raleigh and or at one of Research Triangle Park's more than 170 global companies.

Business is a three dimensional concept. It is a phenomenon, a process and a philosophy. Most business programs address only the first two dimensions; however, business success today requires addressing all three. The business program at William Peace University recognizes that business today is global business and every course in the business program examines the impact of the global environment on the business functions

The curriculum for the WPU business degrees combines the standard fare of business courses with the unique perspective of how to do business on a global scale. Students choose a concentration with their degree in Global Business, Marketing, Leadership and Management Studies, and new to our campus - the WPU Sport Management program.

WPU Sport Management students will have opportunities for internships and careers with pro- and semi-pro teams (locally the Hurricanes, the Durham Bulls, and the Carolina RailHawks), public and private recreational facilities (parks and recreation, golf and tennis clubs, etc.), high schools and intercollegiate athletics.

And while the opportunities at WPU are big, our classes are small. Students receive individual attention the direction and confidence to become leaders in among the most talented people in the world. Graduates have gone onto meaningful careers in marketing, accounting, management, economics, accounting and finance.

The result is students who can not only "talk the talk" but also can "walk the walk" of business.
