Gettysburg College prepares you for a career in business.

Gettysburg will teach you the nuts and bolts—economics, marketing, management, finance. But some of the real magic lies outside of traditional business courses. In those spaces, you form your perspective.

Business employers hire curious people—those who ask questions, those who aren’t afraid of a challenge, those who turn over rocks. Employers look for critical, strategic thinkers. People who understand the business purpose of a job rather than just the tasks of a job.

Gettysburg College is small enough to offer you a vast array of personalized opportunities that help you grow as a human being, but large enough to offer an enviable amount of depth and variety to your experience. It’s the kind of opportunity only a top-tier liberal arts experience can offer, and it’s what business careers today demand.

Our business minor pairs with just about everything

Gettysburg’s six-course business minor gives you the grounding you need in the fundamentals of business, including:

  • Finance

  • Marketing

  • Accounting

  • Organizational Behavior

  • Economics

  • An elective of your choice

You can combine your business minor with any of our majors. Or, you can design your own. You’ll gain the business know-how to succeed in any field. You can find yourself specializing in digital marketing for Under Armour like Elise Sondheim ’15 or leading Skoda Transportation’s financing, sourcing, and purchasing initiatives like Jan Cerny ’11. That’s the benefit of a high quality liberal arts education.

Entrepreneurs need the skills we most often align with a liberal arts education – critical thinking, effective communication, and a global perspective. Our curriculum reinforces these skills through an array of activities for students to gain leadership and entrepreneurial experience.

For example, the Entrepreneurial Fellowship program aligns students’ curricular and co-curricular learning. It creates an environment where student venture ideas are explored, and students can develop experience, connections, and skills to help them view entrepreneurship as a career. As a result, students attain the practical experience and develop the professional skills they need in order to realize their entrepreneurial ambitions and launch their own venture.

“Being able to work with those three mentors from Gettysburg was huge. Having that exposure, support, and knowledge early on—that is what got us off the ground.”

~ Noah Pompan ’18, Co-founder of BOOM Social

Get Real World Experience Before the Real World


Gettysburg College provides students access to
real-world data tools.

At Gettysburg College, you have access to the resources that business leaders use today, including the Bloomberg Terminal, which is the industry’s go-to software for communication, trading, and portfolio optimization.

The Bloomberg Terminal is a computer system that provides investors—and Gettysburg students—critical financial data in real-time. Chris Matthaei ’01, a formidable player in the world of finance, gave generously to Gettysburg College and our students by supplying the College’s Economics Department with the innovative Bloomberg Terminal.

“To me, an investor without a Bloomberg Terminal is like an astronomer without a telescope. My motivation in making this gift is to help Gettysburg students learn the fundamentals of the Bloomberg Terminal before they enter the workforce.”

~ Chris Matthaei ’01, Elevation Securities
