Summer Business Academy

Summer Business Academy expands accessibility for management and economics minors with suite of online courses

The business school encourages undergraduates from other Purdue academic areas to plan ahead and complete their management or economics minor by taking classes fully online over two to three summers through its Summer Business Academy.

As an outgrowth of Purdue’s successful Think Summer initiative, which has increased summer enrollment by nearly 39 percent since 2012, the Summer Business Academy provides an accessible foundation of courses while enabling students more opportunities to incorporate internships, study abroad, and research into their undergraduate experience while keeping them on a fast track to graduation.

At Purdue, summer classes are broken into modules to accommodate the variety of the season's activities. Summer tuition also is affordable, charging a flat rate for anything between 6 to 9 credit hours or a per credit rate for less than 6 hours or more than 9 hours.

The business school's Summer Business Academy currently includes 36 courses: Intermediate Microeconomic Theory, Management Of Human Resources, International Trade, Human Resources Management, Money & Banking, Staffing: Talent Acquisition, Health Economics, Financial Management, Law And Economics, Legal Foundations Of Business I, Principles of Economics, Management Accounting I, Econometrics, Business Statistics, Managerial Economics, Strategic Management, Introduction To Organizational Behavior, Microeconomics, Principles Of Marketing, Data Mining, Macroeconomics, Business Accounting, Introduction To Financial Management, Industrial Organization, Introductory Accounting, Intermediate Macroeconomics, Intermediate Accounting, Intermediate Accounting II, Compensation: Total Rewards, Management Information Systems, Labor Economics, Optimizing Personal Brand & Image, Leadership & Organizational Change, Game Theory, Legal Background of Business I, Consumer Behavior & Marketing and Career Readiness & Exploration.

To earn a minor in business, students not enrolled in the Daniels School are required to complete 15 credits hours from the approved plans of study for management or economics.
