Welcome to the Open Option Program in the School of Business

Dean Open Option Business Major,

Welcome to the Open Option Business program at The College of New Jersey! Whether you’re already an enrolled student in the School of Business or a high school student exploring your college options, you will find that the Open Option program allows students to explore many different areas of business before deciding on a major.

As the Student Development Specialist, I advise all Open Option Business majors.  I will work with you each semester to ensure proper course selection, discuss possible majors, and help you through the change of major process.  I am also one of the co-facilitators of the BUS 099 Freshman Seminar which is required of all School of Business students.

Please take a look at our Open Option Business website. It provides several helpful links that will walk you through the Open Option Business program. I also encourage you to explore each of our departments’ websites. They will give you some additional knowledge about majors and minors available in the School of Business.

If you have questions about the majors offered within the School of Business, your academic progress, or general questions about the program, feel free to contact me by email or phone. I also have an appointment signup sheet in the main office.

I look forward to working with you!
