Mission Statement

The Business Administration faculty recognizes that the fundamental mission of a university is the creation and dissemination of knowledge. The Business Administration faculty contribute to accomplishing their mission through three mutually supporting activities. The faculty's first priority is to impart knowledge and skills through instructional programs. The second priority is to create knowledge through basic and applied research. The third priority is to provide public service through involvement in University, professional and community activities.

The Department of Business Administration offers four programs of study leading to the Bachelor of Science degree.

Honors in Business Administration

Qualifications

  • Enrollment in and successful completion of the University Honors Program

The designation "Honors in Area of Study" (areas of study include Business Administration, Finance, Management, Marketing, or Business and Marketing Education) will be printed on the student's official transcript.
