Established in 1938, the Division of Business Administration & Economics offers a BA in business administration and a BA in economics. Business administration students must concentrate in accounting, finance, management, or marketing, and may also pursue a minor in economics. The Business Administration program prepares students to become successful managers and to develop a leadership perspective. The program sponsors chapters of Omicron Delta Epsilon (the International Honor Society for Economics) and Beta Gamma Sigma (the honor society for AACSB-accredited business programs). The Economics program prepares students for careers as economic practitioners and researchers in the for-profit corporate and business environment, the nonprofit private sector, academia, and government.
