Business Exploration Program
An undeclared business program
The business exploration program is an introductory business program if you are undecided on which major to choose. Incoming first-year students may choose the business exploration program and will complete coursework in the general studies disciplines and in the business core, allowing time to sample some of the foundational courses in a variety of programs.
In your first-year, you will be encouraged to talk with RIT faculty, staff, and career advisors to determine your best choice of major. Students can stay in the business exploration program for a year and a half, at which time you will be asked to select a major in one of our business degree programs.
