Educational Opportunities

The Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration views its programs as providing both a general educational foundation in business and specialized degrees for specific vocations. A career in business often involves traditional functions such as operations management, marketing, or sales, but there is an increasing need for students with business majors to apply their skills in government, international commerce, health care, the arts, and non-profit organizations.

A business education focuses on developing analytical, problem solving skills. The faculty analyzes how businesses plan strategically and examines the role of leadership in organizations and then decides how best to manage people, resources and information. Business principles can serve as the backbone for economic, political, and social systems at all levels.
