B.S. in Business Administration

The College of Business and Economics is committed to providing a broad and flexible professional education. The program offers students the knowledge and skills necessary to understand the changing global business environment and to prepare students for success in their professional careers. Recognizing the importance of ethics in the business community, business ethics is an important component in three of our required core classes.

The Business Administration major program is structured around a set of core courses enabling students to develop general business perspective and skills. Students are required to choose an area of specialization (option) corresponding to their desired career path. In addition, the program allows students flexibility to customize their program by choosing business elective courses. These electives may be chosen to further strengthen their preparation in their chosen option or to explore other subjects. The program is designed to encourage students to actively participate in shaping their program to fit their individual needs.
