Bachelor of Science in Business Administration

The Bachelor of Science in Business Administration is designed for students who want to study business in an environment that fosters creative thinking, diversity, ethical behavior and leadership skills. Students learn to create value and manage change; value individual contributions and respect cultural social differences; make thoughtful decisions, set high standards and be accountable to stakeholders and society as a whole; and lead by fostering critical thinking, effective collaboration, and creativity in solving complex business problems. The skills and knowledge learned will permit students to contribute significantly to their chosen occupations after graduation.

The curriculum for the business administration major permits the student to acquire a foundation in all areas of business administration (accounting, business law, information systems, economics, finance, marketing, management, quantitative methods and statistics). It includes a capstone experience in senior year that combines business plan research with a practicum experience. The practicum allows students an option to start a business in the college's Student Business Incubator.

After graduation, the business administration major has an excellent background in the business and management fields and can directly enter the job market, in commerce, industry, government or other areas. Many students may wish to continue into graduate school or enter one of the professional fields such as law, where they will have had an excellent undergraduate preparation.
