Abstract

Business is a very popular major today. Numerous articles have been written attacking the business major claiming that it is not rigorous enough and does not teach what it purports to do, especially in areas such as ethics. This paper discusses some of the issues with business as a major and offers solutions.

Keywords: business major, college majors, online education, higher education, creativity, intellectual virtues.
