Accounting is often called the "language of business" because it deals with interpreting and communicating information about a company's past activities and forecasting future operations. Every decision maker, from the owner of a small start-up to the CEO of a global conglomerate, works with accounting information. This is a far stretch from the stereotype of back-room number crunching.
The Department of Business Management and Administration offers high quality programs related to management, or the “art of getting things done through people.” Managing involves planning, leading, organizing, and controlling activities to attain the goals of the business organization. Our programs provide a solid grounding in the skills and concepts necessary to navigate the complex challenges of the manager’s role and concentrate on developing the problem-solving, decision-making, and interpersonal skills essential for leading an organization.
Economic problems center around the utilization of limited resources to provide goods and services for society. As a social science, economics is concerned with people in their roles as economic decision makers. Economists study how business and personal decisions are made under conditions of uncertainty and incomplete information, and they provide insight into problems involving both short- and long-term planning, such as investment and savings decisions. A strong grounding in both theoretical and applied aspects of economics allows students to use their knowledge to understand economic behavior and provides a basis for evaluating economic policy.
