Why Choose an Undeclared Major in Business?  Are There Advantages?

Yes. Many students know that they are interested in business, but they are unsure about which major to choose. This is more common than you might think. There is no need to choose a major right away. You can use your early college years to explore different majors, and find out which area of business fits your interest, your aptitude and your career goals.

Coming to Adelphi as an undeclared business major gave me the freedom to live in the moment and explore many areas of business in my first two years here. I have been torn for a long while between management and finance. After taking many of the core business classes and talking to my professors and advisors it allowed me to come to an easy decision. Finance is the best route for me to take to achieve my future goals because I truly enjoy the finance field.
