Undergraduate Programs

At the Daniels College of Business, our goal is to prepare you for a lifetime of personal and professional success. That’s an extraordinary promise. We’ve assembled extraordinary resources—an innovative curriculum, world-class facilities and a business-savvy faculty—to deliver on it.

We offer business majors and minors that span the spectrum of traditional disciplines such as Management, Marketing, Accounting and Finance to more eclectic disciplines such as Hospitality Management, Business Information and Analytics, International Business, and Real Estate and the Built Environment. All feature rigorous coursework and hands-on experiences that are continually updated to reflect current business practices. But that’s only part of the equation. We also seek to develop your ethical compass, life skills and professionalism so you’re ready to make a positive difference in your career, your community and beyond.

Hands On Learning

Learning at Daniels goes beyond the traditional classroom learning. You’ll interact with business leaders, solve real business problems and apply your skills and knowledge when the stakes are real.

Gain Real-World Experience

  • Corporate Advisory: In this course, work with a team of students to solve a current, time-critical business issue related to accounting and finance issues for a corporate partner which is concluded with a formal presentation to the corporate team.
  • Hands-on Portfolio Management: Students in the Reiman Investment Fund course utilize leading industry datasets and portfolio management tools to manage an actual stock portfolio.
  • Event Management: Students in our Hospitality Management program plan and orchestrate large-scale events including the DU Vin Festival, the Public Good Gala, business conferences and weddings.
  • Business Analytics Consulting: Seniors in the Business Information and Analytics program apply the knowledge and skills that they learn in the classroom as they solve a real-world problem for a company.
  • Advertising Creative Strategy: In this course students experience the life of an ad agency team member by working with clients such as Nike, BMW, McDonald’s, Vail Resorts, Ford, Cadillac to create an advertising campaign.
  • Executives in Residence: Executives are invited to Daniels to share their experience and insights with students through career advising, guest lecturing, case competition judging and more.  
  • Voices of Experience: Dynamic discussions with business leaders on the challenges and opportunities in today’s business world.

Ethics & Integrity

Business ethics and academic integrity are not just buzz words at Daniels. They influence every aspect of the Daniels experience from courses that tackle real-world business dilemmas to professors who challenge you to consider the ethical implications of your choices to fellow students who give back through community service projects.

Leading the way for two decades.

With the support of our namesake, cable television pioneer and philanthropist, Bill Daniels, we were one of the first business colleges to make business ethics part of the core curriculum. We’ve been leaders in teaching business ethics—our faculty members are recognized worldwide as experts—for more than two decades. We believe it is our responsibility to produce graduates who will manage and lead with integrity.

An advantage with prospective employers.

Employers recognize that Daniels graduates are uniquely prepared to navigate complex business situations. Our graduates have both the business know-how and the ethical bearings to make smart and sustainable business decisions. They know that just one unethical decision or careless act can ruin a company’s long-standing reputation, let alone their own. It’s no wonder that employers seek out our graduates.

We expect the best from you.

Ethics don’t just apply to business, of course. We have equally high standards for the ethical conduct of the entire Daniels community of students, faculty and staff. All incoming undergraduates sign the University of Denver Honor Code pledging to uphold the principles of truth and honesty in academics. The Student Conduct Policy further defines the values that distinguish DU and Daniels: civility, community, integrity and responsibility. Our students tell us that this focus on ethics and integrity creates a learning environment that is open and honest—and prepares them well for the challenges ahead.

Global Emphasis

Daniels College of Business opens up the world to our students. From the classroom to around the globe, we’ve developed a wide array of international learning experiences that will open your mind, enhance your cross-cultural skills and prepare you to navigate globalization issues with confidence and integrity.

A global perspective is required.

All Daniels undergraduates are required to have an international education experience. Most students fulfill this requirement by studying abroad, but it also may be fulfilled by participating in an international internship or taking an international business course.

International Business Major

This interdisciplinary major encompasses business fundamentals, international law and policy and cultural awareness. The exploration of global issues is integrated throughout the curricula—everything from the nuts and bolts of international finance to sustainable development in emerging economies.

The major has a foreign language requirement, and courses are taken at both Daniels and DU’s Korbel School of International Studies.

Study Abroad

Our students are encouraged to expand their academic and cultural horizons by studying abroad. More than two-thirds of Daniels undergraduate students spend a quarter or longer studying abroad. Learn more»

Technical Expertise

At Daniels, your business education is comprehensive and complete. An essential part is learning the tools of the trade—the technical expertise demanded by business today.

Through coursework, simulations, case studies and in-the-field experiences, you’ll become fluent in business terminology and you’ll master the technology and methodologies used in a variety of business disciplines. Key business functions you’ll learn include analyzing financial statements, conducting market research and developing strategic business plans.

Microsoft Office Certification Requirement

Microsoft Office is widely used in the business world, and your mastery of it will help you better analyze data, model various business situations and create persuasive presentations. To demonstrate mastery of Microsoft Office applications, all Daniels undergraduates must pass the Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) exam which includes a certification exam for Microsoft Excel, Word, and PowerPoint.

FAVORITE WAY TO BE SOCIAL WHILE SOCIAL DISTANCING
Going on socially distant walks with friends or talking on FaceTime/Zoom with my family

FAVORITE DANIELS CLASS/EXPERIENCE or INTERNSHIP
My favorite Daniels experience is being a TA with the MOS program. I have met so many amazing people and have learned so much from this job. I have also loved working at my current internship at Privacera where I get to learn about Data Governance and Security for Cloud Databases.

PODCAST/BOOK/MEDIA YOU RECOMMEND
I really like listening to "The Daily" podcast from the New York Times, especially in the morning. In terms of a TV show, I really liked "The Queens Gambit" on Netflix.

A GO-TO STUDY HABIT YOU'D RECOMMEND
My go-to study habit would be to physically write down notes as I study. I found this to be more helpful compared to typing my notes because it helps me focus better. I also like to spread out my studying over a couple of days.

CAN YOU SPEAK TO A TIME YOU STRUGGLED THAT HELPED YOU WORK TOWARD FUTURE SUCCESS?
Initially, something I really struggled with was finding an internship, especially during my first year at DU. I did not know where to start and the whole process was quite overwhelming. Something that really helped me was finding a faculty advisor who could guide me through the process. Not only did this help me narrow down my career interests but also helped me find internships and a job after graduation. Reaching out and getting help from professors is something that I never really did before, but is something that I would highly recommend not only when searching for internships/jobs but also in classes.

Congrats to Charlotte Simon, week 5 Daniels Student Spotlight winner! Charlotte was nominated because of her truly exceptional work ethic over the past four years. Maintaining an almost unblemished academic record within two rigorous majors while also performing at an elite level of Varsity Athletics (swimming), is a very noteworthy feat.

MAJOR - YEAR IN SCHOOL - HOMETOWN
Business Information & Analytics and Marketing - Senior - Angers, France

FAVORITE WAY TO BE SOCIAL WHILE SOCIAL DISTANCING
Going to the park with a small group of people

FAVORITE DANIELS CLASS/EXPERIENCE or INTERNSHIP
I really enjoyed my first INFO class with Professor Bassani. I came to DU as an undeclared Business Student and this class introduced me to Data Analytics and all the opportunities, skills, and knowledge in the field of Data Analytics. Following that class, I declared myself as a BIA major and, since then, I have been enjoying learning about making extensive use of data modeling, learning statistical techniques, and using data to find meaning, explaining causation, and making predictions.

A GO-TO STUDY HABIT YOU'D RECOMMEND
the new Community Commons on campus is a great place to study. It is quiet, cozy, and the view is amazing! Off-campus, I love to go to the Steam Espresso Bar on Pearl Street. Their coffees are amazing and they have a nice outside patio to seat.

CAN YOU SPEAK TO A TIME YOU STRUGGLED THAT HELPED YOU WORK TOWARD FUTURE SUCCESS?
I am originally from France and moving so far away from my family, and to a foreign country, was challenging at first. It took me some time and effort to get used to a new language and a new culture. I am so grateful for my Swim Team Teammates and all the people at DU that have supported me through this journey. Over the past four years, I had the chance to experience and learn so much in and outside of the classroom and I know that DU helped me become more ready to face any challenges I may face in the future.
