The College of Business is dedicated to educating men and women for professional
positions in business, government, and nonprofit organizations. The thrust
of the college is to build upon a liberal arts foundation for a lifetime
of learning and growth.
The undergraduate program is primarily an upper-division curriculum in
which about half of the work is in the humanities, behavioral sciences,
and mathematics, and the remainder in business and economics.
Core and option programs are designed to prepare students to become professionals.
They equip students with the knowledge, skills, and values necessary to
understand and cope with complex, changing, and increasingly global business
environments. Individual courses promote recognition of potential problems,
foster creative problem-solving, and provide basic analytical and conceptual
skills. Supportive and cooperative learning environments allow students
to strengthen their interpersonal and communication skills.
