With a first-class learning center, expert faculty, and a prime location in the heart of the Milwaukee-Chicago business corridor, Carthage offers students an unequaled experience in learning business principles. Students choose a specific major in business while studying a common foundation in accounting, economics, functional business areas, and management.
The School of Business and Economics Scholarship Competition takes place virtually/online on Friday, February 17, 2024. If selected to compete, candidates will be invited to the virtual/online competition where they will take an examination, complete an essay, have candid discussions with Carthage business and economics students, and hear alumni share experiences and insights regarding their time as a Carthage business and economics student.
