About the School

The School of Administration and Business prepares students for careers in business and positions of responsibility in both the public and private sectors. The curriculum’s international dimension ensures that students can participate actively and successfully in the global marketplace. Students also receive excellent preparation for pursuing graduate business and law school degrees.

The School’s faculty all hold terminal degrees in their fields, and many bring years of experience at the executive level in large and medium sized businesses. This mix of academic preparation and practical application allows students to see and experience how theory and practice interact in business. Along with those faculty who teach in the traditional business specialities, the School has an interdisciplinary group who teach a liberal arts core that is integrated with the more specialized business programs. The School’s faculty values the liberal arts both as a life enriching experience and as an important background for business study. For this reason these studies form a crucial part of the business curriculum.

The School offers five majors: a B S. degree in Accounting, a B.S. degree in Business Administration, a B.A. degree in Economics, a B.S. degree in Information Systems, and a B.A. degree in International Business. The B.S. degree in Business Administration offers programs in finance, management, and marketing. The B.A. degree in Economics combines some elements of Business Administration with a major program in Economics. The B.A. degree in International Business combines significant elements of Business Administration with studies of the world’s regions and foreign languages. The B.S. degree in Accounting combines significant elements of Business Administration with a major in Accounting. The B.S. degree in Information Systems combines elements of Business Administration with a major in Information Systems.

The core courses that are basic to a business program lead to competence in accounting, economics, finance, computer information systems, international business, management, and marketing. As important as they are, these tools alone do not provide sufficient preparation to deal with the highly complex and often unanticipated forces that can influence personal and business activities. For this reason the School of Administration and Business provides a strong liberal arts foundation to broaden the student’s perspective and intellectual abilities.

All students in the School take a 19-credit liberal arts core program comprised of the following courses dealing with the economic, international, psychological, and ethical environment of business and society, taken in the sequence given:

Freshman Year: Perspectives of Business and Society (4 cr.)
(waived for transfer students having 60 or more
accepted transfer credits)

Sophmore Year: Introduction to Macroeconomics (3 cr.)
Microeconomics (3 cr.)

Junior Year: A designated course in international category (3 cr.)
A designated course in organization theory and behavior (3 cr.)

Senior Year: Ethics in Business or other ethics course (3 cr.)

The School of Administration and Business has two outstanding personal computer laboratories. Each contains 25 networked, workstations and provides access to a variety of Windows-version software, including word processing, spread sheet, data base, business graphics, desktop publishing, accounting, and statistical programs.

Students also have access to a microvax minicomputer for work with programming languages and the UNIX operating system. All students in the School are given electronic mail accounts and encouraged to communicate with course instructors, advisers, and classmates using e-mail.

Students who wish to complete a degree program in Business Administration, Accounting, Information Systems, or International Business must have a 2.5 grade point average when they reach 45 degree credits (including transfer credits). Students who transfer in with 45 or more credits must have a 2.5 grade point average at the time of transfer to enter the business program.

The School of Administration and Business seeks to combine theory with practice by supporting the Cooperative Education Program and sponsoring extracurricular organizations. Students are urged to join: the Accounting Club, the International Business Association, the Society for Human Resource Management, the American Production and Inventory Control Society, the Finance and Investments Club, and the Marketing Club. The School also sponsors a local chapter of Delta Mu Delta, the national business administration honor society, and a chapter of Omicron Delta Epsilon, an economics honor society.
