Bachelor Degree in Business

Our Business program combines innovative tools such as situation-based challenges, living case studies, management simulations and integrative projects with a globally-driven academic base in the areas of economics, accounting, finance, marketing and human resources. Our goal is to prepare you for success in the areas of  retail, marketing, sales, communications, financial services, insurance, public administration, consulting, project management and foodservice management.

It takes more than just a textbook approach to succeed in today’s service-driven, global economy. It takes people who think creatively, have superior problem-solving skills and the determination to work hard – people who understand the “big-picture” with the ability to execute and deliver practical, tangible outcomes. Our innovative business program also includes a solid academic foundation found in more traditional business programs.

We focus on developing:

*Leadership capabilities
*International perspective
*Presentation skills
*Sales and relationship-management skills
*Business acumen and professional polish
*Critical-thinking and decision-making skills

Business degree program concentrations include:

*B.A. in Business with a concentration in Business Strategy
*B.A. in Business with a concentration in Culinary Entrepreneurship
*B.A. in Business with a concentration in Entrepreneurship and Business Development
*B.A. in Business with a concentration in International Business
