UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS

Earn a Bachelor of Science in Business degree with a major in Management and Administration, Marketing, Accounting, or Finance. The Economics major provides an option for earning a Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts degree.

Management and Administration

Majoring in Management and Administration prepares you to successfully navigate the many demands facing 21st century businesses, including technological and social change, global competition, and workforce diversity. You will study a variety of business and economics subjects, learn theories of managing complex business operations, and focus on goal-setting, leadership, planning, controlling, and problem-solving in a global business context.

Marketing

A marketing professional understands a business’s needs, develops new products, and determines how a business communicates with its customers about its products. With a concentration in marketing, you will study topics such as consumer behavior, product development, pricing, channels of distribution, promotion, marketing research, and management of corporate marketing operations, and may pursue a career in fields such as advertising, marketing, promotions, public relations, or sales.

Accounting

Accounting is a constantly evolving field that allows a business to track its income and assets over time. Your study of accounting will give you an understanding of ethics, effective communication strategy, accepted accounting principles, and the theory that shapes these principles. You will learn to utilize accounting, legal, taxation, and other information to solve complex business problems.

Economics

Economics is the study of the rational allocation of resources, and it applies to and complements many other academic disciplines and professions throughout academia, government, and business. Through your study of economics, you will develop valuable analytical and decision-making skills as well as an understanding of the social factors related to economics, such as unemployment, poverty, inflation, market structure, and international competition.

Finance

Finance is the study of how a business or individual raises, allocates, and uses monetary resources over time, taking into account the risks incurred by specific projects. In the context of the global business environment, your studies in finance will teach you to understand corporate and investment finance as they relate to wealth maximization, communicate clearly and persuasively about finance, and synthesize unstructured data into a unified business plan.
