The Department of Economics and Business strives to prepare students to thrive in their chosen business professions. The primary objectives of this department are to equip our graduates with the fundamental skills of business management and to help them develop leadership and citizenship abilities. These objectives are accomplished through high standards for excellence, hands-on application of business principles, and capable, qualified instructors.
Students in Business select one of two concentrations, Business or Accounting. Courses include the study of economics, management theory, social media and marketing, business law, accounting basics, and business finance. Accounting majors add seven courses in that concentration to prepare for the CPA exam.
In addition to the major, the department offers minors in Business Administration and Health Care Management.
