Majors, Minors, & Programs
Rider University students successfully completing the business education requirements will be comprehensively certified to teach the following: Accounting, banking and insurance, business computer applications, business law, business communications, business mathematics, economics and finance, entrepreneurship; international business; keyboarding; business management; business organization, marketing; office administration/office systems technology; and exploration in business related careers.
The Business Honors Program at Rider - created exclusively for business majors enrolled in the College of Business Administration - differs from the Baccalaureate Honors Program (BHP), which is open to all qualifying undergraduate students in the University community. Although the core benefits of both programs are essentially the same - smaller class sizes with a group of highly motivated and intelligent peers - the requirements and structure of each program differ greatly.
The Business of Sports program at Rider University provides students with an interdisciplinary approach to the examination of the multifaceted sports industry. The minor is designed to broaden and deepen the understanding of complex issues that are reported regularly in the media like, performance enhancing drugs, financing of new facility construction, discrimination, salary levels, labor relations, marketing and promotion, crime, the role of the NCAA, ticket pricing policies, scandals at colleges and universities, among others.
