Philosophy and Business

Combine an interest in business with complex decision-making in the philosophy and business program.

If you're someone with an interest in business who has clear viewpoints and can handle complex decision-making, this dynamic program is for you. The Philosophy and Business program at York College opens doors to a world of career opportunities - any business benefits from hiring those who evaluate ethical perspectives, have critical-thinking skills, question assumption, and provide (intuitive or insightful) observations and analysis about how a business is constructed.

Hands-on Experience

The hallmark of a student studying Philosophy and Business is his or her ability to identify and solve complex challenges in organizations while adding philosophical reflection and analysis mixed with business theory. In short, you’re offering much more than sound business practices. You’re giving depth and analysis while offering the “why?” behind a business approach. Internships will help you develop those skills in areas such as:
  • Public policy
  • Corporate social responsibility
  • Behavioral economics
  • Sustainability
  • Leadership
