The department engages students in active learning and facilitates their development of analytical, critical thinking, communication, and problem-solving skills. Department faculty are active scholars, focused on teaching and engaged in service to the College and to the broader community.
Students may pursue a B.A. in Economics, a B.S. in Accounting, or a B.S. in Business Administration. We offer minors in Business, Economics, Sports Management, and Health Care Management. Additionally, we offer concentrations in Accounting, Finance, Marketing, Human Resource Management, International Business, Organizational Management, Information Systems, Sports Management, and Health Care Management.
Business students qualify for an array of leadership positions and other advanced roles in private, public, and nonprofit organizations.

Business administration graduates are well positioned to venture into entrepreneurship.
