The business administration major prepares students for a wide variety of careers in business. Emphasis areas in Finance, Human Resources, International Business, Integrated Supply Chain, Management, and Marketing are designed to give students an opportunity to develop skills and knowledge in their area of interest.
The accounting major is designed to prepare students for careers in public accounting, industry or governmental agencies. Students completing the requirements of the major are qualified to take the certified management accountant examination and, after completion of 150 hours of college credit, the certified public accountant examination.
Because they will interact with people worldwide during their careers, business administration and accounting students are urged to increase their exposure to and awareness of various nations and cultures. The university provides many ways in which they can do this through acclaimed study abroad programs. In addition, the University has a domestic exchange program where a student can spend a semester studying at over 500 schools in the United States and Canada.
The department also offers a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration at a distance. This program allows students to balance work and personal commitments with their educational goals. The degree is delivered at a distance but is not differentiated from the on campus degree. Students may choose to take online or print courses and no campus attendance is required. Most courses are taught by experienced on campus faculty who guide students’ work. Online courses are offered in the fall, spring and summer semesters and they emphasize student interaction. Print courses feature self-paced study, and students may register for print courses any working day of the year.
In addition to the undergraduate majors, the Department offers four Master’s degree programs in Project Management, Organizational Change Leadership, Distance Education Leadership, and Integrated Supply Chain.
