Business Majors

Learn the fundamental concepts and strategies used by all kinds of successful organizations in our Bachelor in Business Administration program,

then take it to the next level.

Challenge yourself against real-world business scenarios.

Run an international commercial “bank”, competing against your classmates in a complex global simulation.

Design a mountain resort which resolves your dreams in practical and fiscal reality.

Develop your product idea from “wouldn’t it be cool” to functional proposal, complete with market analysis, complete presentation plan, and elevator pitch, in SNC Tahoe’s Business Plan Competition series.

Hone your knowledge and skills in an internship.

Our students have interned – and sometimes continued into permanent jobs – at area businesses and non-profits including Vail Resorts, Paine-Weber/UBS, the Energy Conservation Department, the venture capital firm Sierra Angels, Prim Associates, Diamond Peak Ski Resort, and Deep Distributors.

Why SNC?

Business administration is not just spreadsheets and strategic plans.

Success in our increasingly global, complex, and unpredictable world demands “soft” skills and entrepreneurial attitudes: collaboration and teamwork; clear and compelling communication; accepting risk and “failing forward”; creative imagination coupled with hard-nosed practicality. You will continually use and improve those skills as you work with faculty and mentors who have decades of experience in a surprising variety of endeavors.

Our faculty’s leadership backgrounds range across technology entrepreneurship and R&D-to-market innovation; major sports organizations and Hollywood studios; international banking and overseas development; ski area ownership/operations and hospitality marketing.

Prepare for your future in the Bachelor in Business Administration program, whether that involves professional employment at a private company, non-profit, or governmental agency; continued post-graduate education; or starting your own business.
