Large enough to lead. Small enough to care. In Michigan Tech’s College of Business, our culture is steeped in science, technology, engineering, and math, preparing business-smart, STEM-savvy students to create the future.
The Business Leaders Tomorrow Needs
The Michigan Tech College of Business prepares students for tomorrow by blending leading-edge business with science, technology, engineering, and math. Because tomorrow needs STEM-smart entrepreneurs, innovators, and groundbreakers. Tomorrow needs you.
Be the First
As a first-generation college student, finance and accounting dual major Marco Marquez didn't have a network to guide him through college life. He made connections quickly on campus with classmates who became friends: "They helped me become the best student and person I can be."
Business Huskies visit regionally based companies like Stormy Kromer—known worldwide—to get a firsthand look at brand management, supply chain operations, and company culture.
Students participating in the Economics Club compete and win national competitions earning trips to Washington, DC, to meet policymakers and present their ideas for the future of retirement.
Caleb Grulke, engineering management major in the College of Business, is the number-one ranked Army ROTC cadet in the nation. As battalion commander of the 1st Arctic Warriors Battalion of the Michigan Tech Army ROTC, Cadet Lt. Col. Grulke credits the multidisciplinary nature of his major—business blended with engineering—and the guidance of his cadre for the opportunity.
Make an Impact
In addition to being a Leading Scholar and Impact Scholar, accounting and management dual major Jaylen Body has been selected from 35,000 students across the nation as a Gates Scholar. His leadership on campus makes an impact every day.
Create a Safer Tomorrow
TechMBA® alumnus Jake Soter '20 observed that flag-warning systems at public beaches weren't updated right away, and swimmers weren't getting important information on days with strong rip-currents. His innovation SwimSmart Technologies, developed with a faculty mentor, aims to make beaches safer by using technology to communicate conditions faster.
Advance What's Next
Michigan Tech DECA students have the tools, resources, and talent to plan and pitch their way to national competition.
Join our Pack
"Our students stand out because we put them in teams beginning with their first year. They have more collaboration and conflict resolution skills than the people they are competing with for jobs. That's what recruiters tell me."
Nicholas Pate, member of the Michigan Tech chapter of the American Marketing Association, attends the largest regional conference for undergraduate marketing students hosted annually by the University of Wisconsin–Whitewater. The experience allows Michigan Tech marketing students to develop their professional network with employers during the marketing-specific career fair, attend presentations by industry experts, and participate in competitions.
Go Beyond Business
Just a few years ago Donzell Dixson was a finance student on campus. Today he works at Target Headquarters as a business analyst and is the founder of startup Dixson Dynamics. Michigan Tech prepared him with hands-on experiences for the technical demands of business.
Gain an Edge
"A business background strong in science, technology, engineering, and math—STEM—leads to advanced career opportunities and higher salaries for our graduates."
