Bachelor of Science (B.S.) Degree
The Business Administration bachelor's degree program provides a balanced combination of required core courses to ensure students can achieve a solid business and general studies education, and electives to inspire students to customize their programs to best fit their unique interests.
Upon completion of the program, graduates are expected to demonstrate the ability to
- Exhibit competence in management, marketing, accounting finance, business law and economics.
- Solve problems by identifying alternatives and justifying decisions using higher-order thinking skills.
- Identify and analyze ethical issues while implementing socially responsible business practices.
- Demonstrate effective written and oral communication skills.
- Identify and analyze the effects of global forces within the business environment.
This program's business-related core builds a solid foundation by exposing students to relevant areas of Accounting, Economics, Information Technology, Business Law, Finance, Marketing and Management. Arts & Sciences courses also provide opportunities for students to acquire the skills important for professional success and lifelong personal and intellectual growth.
Students also tailor their degree by working with a faculty advisor to select 31.5 credits of business electives. In doing so, students have the freedom to choose from extensive options to best suit their goals. For example, students can pursue concentrations in business; concentrations in other areas; internships; directed work experiences; and/or study abroad credits to prepare for a more specific career.
The general studies courses taught by the School of Arts & Sciences are also an important component of the program's education experience. These courses help students develop competencies in higher-order thinking and communications while providing them with a better understanding of ethics, global diversity, responsible citizenship, leadership and artistic responsibility.
