Business Administration

Department of Business Administration

The Business Administration program offers study in finance, management, marketing, entrepreneurship/small business management, international business, management information systems, computer forensics, computer information systems, fraud examination, and general business. The focus is undergraduate education in this student-oriented learning environment. Hands-on learning, full student participation, and technology are integrated throughout the Business Administration program. Neither narrow nor vocational in its approach, the course work includes critical and logical thinking, communication skills, creative problem solving, innovation, decision making, and theoretical, technical, and professional skills.

Business policies and practices both reflect and help form the ethical, global/international, and moral foundations of a society; business both draws upon and contributes to knowledge and understanding of the world. In recognition of this, the Department of Business Administration educates its students to be discerning, responsible citizens of both the business community and our democratic society.

The theoretical aspects of business are grounded in social sciences such as economics, political science, psychology, sociology, and anthropology. The Business Administration curriculum is therefore broadly conceived. It prepares students for entry into the business world or for graduate study, and offers them a liberal education that will contribute to their intellectual, personal, and ethical growth.
