The Business Department is dedicated to preparing ethical leaders who are distinguished by a breadth of competence that positions them to innovate and thrive in constant change.

The Business Administration major and minor are comprised of Business courses as well as key courses from other disciplines that teach principles rooted in the Core Values of integrity, stewardship and community.

Business majors learn to analyze, plan, organize, communicate, and work with others in preparation for careers in today’s global business environment. And they gain valuable hands-on experience during internships at such organizations and companies as the American Red Cross, Procter and Gamble, and Samet Corporation that help them build a strong business portfolio ahead of graduation.

The department is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) and offers a minor in money and finance.

Majors and Minors

"One of the biggest misconceptions is that you have to go to a big school do something big in life. My friends and I started our own record label and clothing line. I studied international business in Shanghai. Now I’m realizing my dream of working for the NBA."
