This center hosts case competitions, which are academic competitions in which students come together to solve a business issue.

Your business school journey can be customized to your interests and career goals. Make your plan of study your own.


Minors are designed to complement your chosen business major and can be incorporated into your degree program without adding time to your college experience.


Similar to a minor, concentrations provide additional opportunities to develop competencies across business disciplines and a more holistic, deeper understanding of specific topics.

Master's Degrees

Continue your education and boost your earning power with a specialized master’s degree or MBA from the Daniels School. Our academic advisors can help you design a plan of study that leads to both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in as little as one additional semester of school.

Transformative Learning

Bring your coursework to life with a wide array of experiential learning opportunities available to all students.

Honors Program

Purdue’s John Martinson Honors College fosters well-rounded global leaders who have an impact on society. The Honors College is an academic residential college, meaning admitted students live and learn in the same space. Students accepted to the Honors College engage in rigorous Honors coursework and earn a special citation on their diploma.

Learning Communities

Purdue’s learning communities are groups of students who share interests and take courses together, and may live in the same residence hall. Joining a learning community can make a large campus feel smaller. Explore the Daniels School’s learning communities.


CareerBound is a career prep program that helps our students develop core competencies that employers want. Competencies like teamwork, equity and inclusion, and communication are integrated into our curriculum and co-curricular activities to give you a strong foundation in the skills you need to land your dream job. Use the CareerBound app to compete with your peers and climb the leaderboards as you grow professionally.

Study Abroad

Study in another country to gain knowledge you can’t find in a book. Experience how business works outside the U.S. (and taste local foods and visit cool sites!). Purdue offers more than 400 study abroad programs that vary in length from one week to a full academic year, and the Daniels School is committed to making study abroad affordable.

Paving Your Career Path

We are dedicated to seeing our students find career success. Our industry-savvy career coaches, advisors, and peer consultants engage with you to help you design, launch, and nurture a successful, fulfilling professional life.
