Methodist University, through the Reeves School of Business, is nationally accredited by the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) to offer majors in Accounting, Business Administration, Financial Economics, and Marketing, along with the concentration in Professional Tennis Management.
Methodist University is currently the only university in the United States to also offer a minor in Professional Tennis Management that is attainable with a B.A. or B.S. in any major offered at the university.
Students can receive a Bachelor of Science (science and math intensive) or a Bachelor of Arts (foreign language intensive) in any of the three business school majors mentioned previously.
