The program leading to the Bachelor of Science in business administration is based upon a philosophy of total student development. Students choosing this degree program are provided with an education that stresses an interdisciplinary approach. They are exposed to all aspects of the complex and changing business environment with a specific emphasis upon social, cultural and political factors. The total development objective creates a program blending a business education with that of the liberal arts. All students choosing a degree in business administration take a common core of 10 courses such as Principles of Management, Marketing, Human Resources Management and a capstone course called Business Policy and Strategic Planning. Additional courses are required in economics, accounting, math, computer information systems, English, social sciences and humanities. The program includes sufficient electives to allow students the option of a dual concentration if they plan their program of study carefully. In addition, the liberal arts component provides a sound foundation for both behavioral and quantitative business majors through the broadening of the students social and cultural backgrounds.
