As a Department of Business Administration, our responsibility is to develop business leaders and professionals with the consciousness, knowledge, and practical skills to be successful in a dynamic, ever changing business environment. We equip students with the necessary tools so that they can be immediate contributors to the organizations they join upon graduation. While a large part of that process involves classroom learning, we strive to enrich business programs by additional experiential learning opportunities in many different areas to round out students‘ academic careers.
