A CEBES student must satisfy the course requirements in columns A—G. However, because of the department's emphasis on multidisciplinary bodies of knowledge, a student may optionally pursue a non-business minor providing this request is sanctioned and approved by the advisor and department chairperson. A Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree candidate must also fulfill the course requirements of columns A—G plus any additional language requirements of the department of Foreign Languages. Similar to the BS student, a BA student may also elect to pursue a non-business minor providing he/she receives the appropriate departmental approvals.

Students who graduate from CEBES's programs possess a wide range of pre-professional and integrated academic skills and experiences that prepare them to successfully enter and negotiate the competitive postgraduate job market of increasing change, complexity and ambiguity. The department also encourages its students to pursue advanced degrees (MA, MBA, MS, and PhD.) and professional certifications, such as the Certified Public Accountant (CPA), Certified Financial Analyst (CFA), Certified Financial Planner (CFA), Certified Internal Auditor (CIA), Certified Management Accountant (CMA) and others.

CEBES subscribes to University of Delaware President and Wharton's Past-Dean, Patrick Harker's, viewpoint that, "Business is the most powerful force for positive change in the world today". The Department of Business and Entrepreneurial Studies is committed to providing the very best business and interdisciplinary undergraduate education that is available in academia to stimulate and facilitate changes in the global marketplace and expand the boundaries of knowledge.
