Business and Economics Club

The Business major prepares students for challenging roles and opportunities in business, advanced degree programs, and professional certification. Students acquire skills in market/industry research, analytical procedures and techniques, creativity, teamwork, computer applications, and other areas. These skills are applied to the planning, financing and management of large and small businesses

Business majors take core courses in the disciplines of Accounting, Finance, Management, Marketing, and Production/Operations Management. In addition, each Business major, with the help of a faculty advisor, selects a set of career-directed “focus” courses in one or more of the core disciplines or International Business.

The Economics degree program focuses on a balanced and relevant curriculum in preparation for career opportunities in both the private and public sectors of the economy and for graduate training in economics, business, law, public policy administration, and other related programs. Students learn basic economic principles and theoretical concepts and develop skills in the applied areas of economics.

The Division takes pride in giving students access to its faculty and encouraging individualized experiences. Students work closely with their advisor to design a focus that complements their personal career plans. Students can also participate in internships, job shadowing, and campus clubs.

The faculty has designed the curriculum to build student skills in critical thinking, oral and written communication, group processes, and computer applications. Group experiences are encouraged throughout the curriculum, culminating in the capstone course, Strategic Management. Computer applications are integrated into the curriculum, including data base management, word processing, and spreadsheets.
