What You Need to Know about Studying Business

Hello Future Hope College Students! I thought it might be interesting to tell you a little about the Department of Economics, Management, and Accounting (DEMA). Many times, when people think about the strengths of Hope College, business might not be their first thought. However, the business department is a phenomenal program.

Several different majors are offered in DEMA, such as:

  • Management
  • Economics
  • Public Accounting (150 Credits)
  • Accounting
  • Public Accounting and Management Double Major
  • Accounting and Management Double Major
  • Management and Economics Double Major
  • Management and French

Not only are different majors offered but also different tracks inside of a major. Some of the tracks are:

  • Entrepreneurship
  • Finance/Banking
  • Human Resource
  • International Business
  • Marketing
  • Nonprofit
  • Operations
  • Technology

Being a DEMA student allows you to participate in some great opportunities and experiences. Hope professors work extremely hard to provide students with career developing events as well as out of classroom experiences.

As a Public Accounting and Management double major, I have had the opportunity to attend resume workshops, mock interviews, career fairs, and business school tours. In addition, Hope has also prepared me to compete with top business school students in potential internships and job offers.

If you are considering business as a major, I would highly recommend getting into contact with a professor in the department if you have not already. And, if possible, I would advising coming for one last visit day, or fly in weekend, to visit a business class.

Below I’ve provided some different links that provide information about Hope College Business Faculty members and the different majors/tracks:
