Major Discernment

Students in the Mendoza College of Business declare their major in February of their sophomore year.  It is important to not just be thinking about it, but also actively researching and reflecting so that you make an intentional, informed decision.  Unfortunately, many students select majors without really exploring ALL their options.  Before you dismiss a possible path, be sure you've carefully considered the coursework and career opportunities as well as your interests, skills and strengths. 

On October 4, 2017 we launched our first app: The SMART Sophomore App is designed to encourage students to use the resources available to them to learn about and evaluate their major options, as well as reflect on their personal strengths and interests with the goal of making an informed, intentional decision about their major.  We've rebranded and expanded the app for the Class of 2021. The Mendoza SMART App relaunched in September 2018 with a whole new look and many more challenges and prizes to aid in their growth and discovery.
