About Daniels College of Business

What Recent Grads Say See All 5 Comments >

Flexible scheduling and program offerings allow for all types of students to take classes on a full-time or part-time basis. DU allows for you to pick a structured "path" for a concentration or you can make your own. I chose finance as my concentration while a fellow student created his own "Entrepreneurial Leadership" concentration as was able to work with advisers to tailor his classes appropriately.
