competitive, global business environment, managers must have a variety
of skills – coupled with knowledge and experience – in order to manage
and lead successfully. Managers are no longer insulated within
functional areas of business. Many responsible positions require a solid
background in business fundamentals, as well as an appreciation of the
interrelated nature of business functions.
The Business Administration [BADM] major
provides students the opportunity to develop skills in their
business-related areas of interest and increase their understanding of
the broader business environment. Students create an individualized, but
integrated set of courses – from the approved list of business
electives and no more than one course outside the School of Management.
The curriculum allows students to develop their communication,
analytical and computer skills, creativity, and other qualities
necessary for success in organizational life. Ultimately, this major
provides a more comprehensive, but tailored education opening up a
variety of career paths for students.
Students take 20 credits of upper
division, non-core business coursework. With approval from a faculty
advisor, 4 of the 20 credits may be from business related coursework in
other colleges within the University.
