The Business Administration Department is designed to prepare students to investigate the fundamentals of business, with emphasis on understanding the social and economic environments in which we live, as well as preparing students for the challenging roles and opportunities in the management and administration of complex organizations. The curriculum objectives will enable students to be competent and competitive and to function in both the public and private sectors. Students will learn the applications of business principles in a free market economy.  Upper-division students will be required to have access to laptop computers.

At the upper-division level, students choose a concentration in one of the following areas: Administration-entrepreneurship, finance, or marketing. These concentrations will enhance the student’s knowledge in his or her pursuit of a career-directed program designed by the student and his or her advisor.
