Undergraduate Business Program

The Bachelor of Arts in Business is a 120-hour program combining a core curriculum committed to the Western heritage of liberal education with a traditional program of business study to develop principled and moral leaders who are competent and responsible managers.

The degree program is composed of four categories of course work: the University Core Curriculum, Business Major Core, electives and the Business Practicum.
