In addition, 5 year accelerated B.A. and M.B.A. programs are also available.

The department offers courses and programs of study that are concerned with people in various social and organizational contexts.

Majors in economics and business administration have pursued graduate study in economics and business administration and have entered careers in a variety of business sectors and in many organizational types from corporate to non-profit, start-up to public agencies. While there are required courses in both undergraduate B.A. majors, there is flexibility in selecting elective courses. Students select concentrations of courses that focus on specific education and career interests, and may even pursue a double major when it serves their career needs.

The graduate program in business administration is designed to increase career mobility and to improve management skills for those in, or seeking to enter, management positions.

The economics and business administration faculty represent a variety of backgrounds including economic theory, economic development, environmental economics, international economics, econometrics, finance, accounting, public administration, marketing, international business, personnel management, organization theory, management information systems, entrepreneurship, and strategic management.
