My Michigan Tech: Emma Melchiori

Emma talks about why she chose business and Michigan Tech. The short answer? The friendly professors and campus vibe make going to class fun.

Get going. You’ll find your lane.

Business-smart, STEM-savvy, Michigan Tech offers seven business majors—and a 91 percent placement rate (average starting salary: $57,000). 

Spring break in Silicon Valley. Internships with Ernst and Young. Managing information and digital campaigns. Working with people and technologies. Not just theory, doing.

You know your passions lie in the business world, but with so many options, it’s hard to know which is the right fit. Our General Business option is a smart choice—you’ll have time (up to three semesters) to explore everything the College of Business, and Michigan Tech, has to offer before deciding on a major.

During this time, your academic advisor will help you choose courses that fulfill future degree requirements and your general education credits, as well as provide resources and guidance to help you find the major that best suits your own talents, interests, and values.

College of Business offers eight majors—accounting, construction management, economics, engineering management, finance, management, management information systems, and marketing—with faculty mentors who have connections to industry, both locally and at the top organizations nationwide.

"At Michigan Tech, my professors focus on projects and practical application, rather than reading out of a textbook. College of Business classes prepared me for work in the real world." Tom Strome, fourth-year marketing and MIS major
