The School of Business trains students to become contributing members of today’s corporate, entrepreneurial, public and non-profit organizations. While an objective of the School is to prepare a person for specific career orientation, the School recognizes that the student must also develop into an individual ready to adapt to personal and social problems as well as to a constantly changing global, competitive environment. Communication and leadership skills are critical and will be honed through experiential learning, internship opportunities, and student organizational involvement. Prior to entering a specialized curriculum, students will broaden their preparation in written and oral communications, the social and natural sciences, mathematics and other courses that will prepare them for a lifetime of learning.
Special Note: A course taken as an elective for a BUS major cannot be used as an elective to satisfy the requirements of another BUS major or minor.
