Carroll School of Management

Business + liberal arts

Based on the belief that broad knowledge, rather than specialized training, best prepares students to be effective in a changing world, the Carroll School’s undergraduate academic program includes courses in both business and the liberal arts. Carroll School students must fulfill the requirements of Boston College’s core curriculum and also complete the Carroll School’s management core: a broad slate of introductory courses in business disciplines. Additionally, Carroll School students are required to select one or more management concentrations.


The University Core Curriculum consists of courses in the arts, history, literature, mathematics, natural science, philosophy, social science, theology, writing, and cultural diversity. 


The Carroll School Core Curriculum includes the introductory business and ethics course Portico, as well as courses in economics, information systems, accounting, statistics, law, math for management science, organizational behavior, operations management, finance, marketing, and strategy and policy.  


Concentrations are available in the areas of accounting (with options for further specialization), computer science, economics, finance, human resources management, information systems, marketing, operations and strategic management, leadership, and general management. Students are encouraged to pursue a minor or major in the College of Arts and Sciences, as well.


Taught by a faculty of scholars, researchers, and eminent practitioners, the Carroll School’s curriculum enables students to create value not only for themselves, but also for the organizations to which they will one day contribute.
