B.S. Business Administration: Management Science

The mission of the Business Administration Department is to offer students a broad-based and student-focused, quality business education grounded in the University's liberal arts tradition that provides students with a solid foundation of success in pursuing their careers, in furthering their education and in contributing to a rapidly changing global economy. The Business Administration Management Science curriculum gives students a thorough background in the concepts and practice of management through personal instruction combined with real world examples. The curriculum prepares students for successful service in commercial, nonprofit, and government organizations as well as entering graduate programs. Through this degree program, students will acquire the knowledge and skills generally needed in business and will concentrate on the specialized business functions of management.

Students with a major in Business Administration must achieve a 2.00 GPA for all courses in the major.  The GPA may not include more than two grades of D.  Students must satisfactorily complete business “pre-core” courses to build a solid foundation needed for better learning business knowledge and skills.  Next, business students are required to take business core courses in order to obtain a common body of knowledge. 

The top 20 percent of seniors in the department may be inducted into the academic honors fraternity Sigma Beta Delta.
