Why don’t the military academies have a “business” or related major?
U.S. Naval Academy, West Point, the Citadel, Air Force Academy, etc,

West point has majors in management, that uses the case study method, just as any other business school. Also economics.

The Citadel isn't a service academy. It is a state run school and is a 'senior military college.'
The federal service academies lean heavy towards STEM majors.
While they might not have a major named 'business,' USAFA has management and economics. The management degree there is similar to a business management degree at other schools. USMA also offers economics and management while USNA only has economics and quantitative economics.
The course of study at the academies integrates leadership and management programs to teach cadets and mids to lead the military.

Because the mission of military academies is to produce line officers. Line officers are those in command of combat forces.
The military does have many staff officers, including many business majors. These officers are in charge of our supply chain. It would not be appropriate to put staff officers through the same training as line officers. There are hundreds of ROTC units properly training staff officers.

Because killing is our business, and business is good.

The Citadel does have a very, very good business program. They also have several other majors (pre-med, education, law enforcement, naturally engineering) many are nationally ranked and a few in the top 20. We know people who went there. It's not for everybody. It's a pretty tough place. I think VMI might have a few courses as well.

The Citadel can do what it wants. It's not an actual U.S. government academy. The others are in the business of producing military officers, not accountants.
