The courses and programs offered by the department are designed to provide, within the context of a liberal arts tradition and Seventh-day Adventist Christian values and ethics, professional education necessary to succeed in the competitive business environment.
 
The objectives of this department are:
1) 
to provide the student with the basic business skills required for initial job placement;
 
2) 
to give the student a broad background of knowledge of the free enterprise system developed through the several disciplines of business;
 
3) 
to assist the student in developing a sound Christian philosophy toward our modern political economy and changing business world; and
 
4) 
to encourage Seventh-day Adventist students to prepare for positions of business leadership and service within organizations sponsored by this denomination.
General Recommendations. For a student to be successful in the cognate mathematics requirement, it is recommended that two years of high school algebra and one year of geometry be completed. A course in keyboarding is desirable. In addition, a course in office machines would prove advantageous in several types of business environments.
 
Degrees Offered. The department offers a Bachelor of Business Administration degree (BBA) with opportunity to concentrate in the areas of accounting, computer information systems, economics, management, or marketing. No minor is required.
 
The department offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Education for students who wish to teach business subjects in high school or in corporate training and development programs. No minor is required.
 
A Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in business administration is available to the student who wishes a broader liberal arts preparation than that provided by the BBA. A minor is required for the BA degree.
 
An Associate of Science degree is available for those students who, for a variety of reasons, may find it impossible to complete a four-year program without an interruption. This program provides students an opportunity to gain the basic knowledge and skills required for initial job placement.
 
Minors are available in business, computer information systems, economics, and marketing.
 
Students who anticipate graduate study in business areas or economics should note the specific requirements of the various schools to which they intend to apply. In general, it is recommended that a minimum of one quarter of calculus be included in the undergraduate program. Curricula of a quantitative nature usually require a year of calculus and additional mathematics courses.
