The BUA department strives to prepare students to take their places in society and to thrive in whatever roles they choose. The successful student who completes the program will:

  • Be able to analyze problems;
  • Be able to communicate ideas effectively in writing;
  • Demonstrate broad knowledge of the functional areas of business:  accounting, economics, finance, management, and marketing; and
  • Demonstrate knowledge of the basic content of finance.

The department is committed to providing a broadly oriented professional education to prepare students for careers in business, government, and not-for-profit organizations. The finance major contains a large number of required core courses that provide students with a firm foundation in the functional areas of business. In addition, the finance courses provide sound, specific preparation for students who seek careers in banking, financial management, or securities sales.
