Business Overview

The Department of Business offers undergraduate programs for students interested in careers in business, commerce, industry, finance, as well as not-for-profit enterprises such as health care, social services, educational institutions and government agencies.

As a student in the business department, you may select from five areas of concentration-accounting, financial planning, general business, management and marketing. Whatever your choice of degree or program, you will take courses that are professionally oriented and academically rooted in the liberal arts. And your course work will be theoretical, practical, comprehensive, and specialized.

The courses in the business department are offered to both day and night students. Occasionally, especially in upper- level courses, a student might have to enroll in a night or Saturday course. Full-time night students (6-8 hours) may expect to graduate in 2-8 years, depending on transfer credits, general education requirements, and summer school attendance.

SPECIFIC INFORMATION

The Bachelor of Arts degree program with a major in business is designed for students who want to take traditional business classes as their major course of study. These students combine 36 credit hours of business courses with a minor from an area outside of business, such as psychology, art, computer information systems‚ foreign language‚ or political science. You may concentrate in accounting, financial planning, general business, management, or marketing.

The Bachelor of Business Administration degree is a highly concentrated program requiring a minimum of 58 credit hours in business and accounting courses. As a student in the B.B.A. program, you will not be required to select a minor. If you choose to pursue a career in public accounting, the B.B.A. degree program is particularly suited for you. The curriculum offers the course work you need to prepare for C.P.A. licensing. The minor in business can provide you with knowledge and skills to complement your major area of study. Also, it expands your career options after graduation. This broad-based minor consists of 24 credit hours in business and accounting.

The Associate of Arts degree program provides a broad introduction to business. As a student in this program, you will have an opportunity to complete two years of college in preparation for an entry-level business position. If you earn an associate’s degree, you may continue your college education by applying your credits toward a bachelor’s degree with a major or minor in business.

The Post-degree certificate in business is designed for students with a bachelor’s degree in a field other than business who are interested in attaining the basic skills offered in a business curriculum. To receive a Certificate of Completion, you will need to complete a 20-credit hour program.
