The Economics & Business Administration department at McDaniel offers a top-ranked program for students interested in business, plus areas of study in accounting, entrepreneurship, and marketing. Our courses cover all aspects involved with the flow of money - from individuals to corporations and governments - as well as the driving forces behind successful businesses. By providing individual attention, we guide our students in learning about the dynamics of engaging business and equip them with skills for success.
