General Information

 

Professional Technical (PT) courses are designed to serve the select needs of students. PT programs and courses may reduce the requirements of academic certificates. Therefore, the student should not expect that these courses are equivalent to academic courses. If the student is concerned about the acceptability of any PT course to a future business, college or university, the student is required to verify the transferability or validity of the course with the business, college, or university prior to entering the course.

Overview

 

The Business Department provides excellence in student-centered learning to prepare students with the knowledge, competencies, and experience necessary to successfully compete in today’s real-world economy, and offers services to address the business training and consulting needs of the community. The Department’s priority is Academic, Professional Technical, Certificate, and Applied instruction, but we also recognize a responsibility to the broader community in building the student as a whole person through broad-based education, scholarship, and service. Faculty are active in professional and civic organizations and are encouraged to author and present cutting edge learning to  regional and national organizations as well as popular and peer-reviewed media. The faculty firmly believes these activities are centrally important for maintaining the relevancy and instructional quality of the Department’s curriculum.

Expectations of Students

 

 

The skills and subject knowledge that we teach and expect graduates to master are:

 

  • A basic knowledge relevant to business in the areas of accounting, economics, management, quantitative business analysis, finance, marketing, management information systems, human resources, business communication, legal and ethical environment, and international issues.
  • The ability to write and orally present business topics in a grammatically correct, effective, logical, and organized manner.
  • Experience in working with others as a team of diverse individuals to make critical business decisions, organize business policy, carry out various business tasks, and report on the results in a collaborative effort.
  • Fundamental computer skills.

Advising

 

Students are strongly advised to develop Program Plans with a Business Department faculty advisor early in their academic careers. Program Plans help the student to understand the program requirements that must be fulfilled to graduate with a recognition of certificate completion. Planning also enables students to learn more about the proper sequencing of courses, which is a key to academic success.
