Why study business at Mary Baldwin University?

From entrepreneur to investment advisor to nonprofit fundraiser, Mary Baldwin business graduates are prepared for a staggering and perennially popular range of careers. Our general business program equips you with a broad-based understanding of the business world, while the marketing and communication major focuses on learning how to help organizations effectively and responsibly communicate their brand.

Complete your business degree online.

Our business degree can be completed fully online through the university’s innovative Baldwin Online and Adult Programs. Just like in-person classes, the Blackboard-interface business program emphasizes the development of strong conceptual skills in tandem with practical applications.

Choose from in-demand areas of concentration: accounting, entrepreneurship, human resource management, management, marketing, and sustainability.
