Do you have a passion to use business skills to meet the needs of under-resourced communities? Then our concentration in community development is for you! This concentration combines a solid business foundation in economics, accounting, finance, management, marketing, law, and quantitative analyses with courses that will increase your understanding of the causes and challenges of poverty while giving you the tools to meet those challenges. 

You will be involved in changing the world.

The purpose of this degree is to prepare students to use their business backgrounds to improve the lives of families in disadvantaged communities across the globe.

Your coursework is about finding solutions, not just learning facts.

You will take courses in sociology, social justice, and business that will allow you to craft a program that matches your interests--whether that is addressing needs in the U.S. or internationally, joining a non-profit organization, or becoming a social entrepreneur. 

You'll have many opportunities to explore.

Our community development graduates have served the poor through a wide range of organizations--from large non-profits to small community development corporations. One alumnus helped to establish a credit union in his own community, while another worked for an agency assisting refugees to resettle in the U.S.
