“The Business Program at Warren Wilson is not a siloed business school. Instead, it is integrated into the whole of your Liberal Arts education. You are able to take courses outside of business that count as electives and complement the major. You can create your own focus. So for example, if you are interested in governmental issues, you can pick electives focused in political science. If you want to manage a human services nonprofit, your electives can be in social work. If you want to start an outdoor adventure company, you can take electives in Outdoor Leadership. You have many possibilities.” – Wendy Seligmann, Business Program Faculty
