Business Administration

Students in the various Business Administration programs are prepared to function as creative, dynamic, morally responsible leaders in a global society. The business faculty strives to foster the ongoing development of the highest standards of personal integrity and the achievement of educational excellence through a challenging course of studies. Graduates of the program will have been educated in a liberal arts tradition to think critically, to analyze complex processes and to evaluate important issues with a commitment to respect the earth and all people. They will be ready to move into their chosen career field, to continue with graduate studies or to enter professional programs such as law or public administration.
