Business Studies and Economics

The Department of Business Studies and Economics prepares undergraduates for careers in today's highly competitive global business environment.

Our broad-based curriculum, accredited by the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education, introduces students to management theories, business practices and the technology that enhances both productivity and the effective utilization of all resources.

Courses are taught by approachable faculty members who use their combination of academic and practical experience to both instruct and advise. Beyond the lecture hall, local internships and service learning opportunities allow students to practice their business skills and improve their resumes while providing a necessary service to the community.

Unique among business programs, we integrate a liberal arts tradition with the University's mercy and justice mission to emphasize ethical and moral decision-making, the responsibilities of leadership and the development of equitable business solutions. As a result, our graduates emerge as engaged, principled world citizens prepared for success in all areas of business - from Wall Street to Main Street.

Through our increasingly popular accelerated program, highly motivated and qualified undergraduates can earn both a bachelor’s and master’s degree within five years.
