The mission of the Business Administration Division is to provide students with a superior business and liberal arts education that prepares them for lives of ethical service and professional achievement in a competitive world. The program at CU College Business of is unusual in that it is embedded in a college of arts, letters, and sciences. More than tolerating or coexisting with the traditional goals of liberal baccalaureate education, the division seeks to embrace fully a liberal arts education as an essential component of the educated man or woman. Persons are persons before they are businesspersons; and if they are educated to become capable and sensible persons, they will make themselves capable and sensible businesspersons.
.
The division expects its graduates to do well in business, yet of most importance is that they do well as individuals who are finding meaning and significance in life and are contributing to making the world a better place.
Our goal is to educate students for ethical, fulfilling lives of service. A liberal arts education has to do more with a spirit of inquiry than content; therefore, rather than taking a narrow approach, the division emphasizes broadly applicable skills: personal judgment and responsibility; an active, questioning mind sensitive to contexts; and the ability to make sense of “facts” and their implications for society. Questions of why or why not are more important than those of “how to.”
.
In addition to preparing students for life, the curriculum prepares students for careers in accounting, business, or management, and is an excellent Business Administration Division
foundation for graduate work in business administration. Special emphasis is currently available in the areas of economics, computer science, marketing, management, and finance if students choose their elective courses to match their interests. The various emphases allow students to prepare for entry-level jobs, while the other business requirements ensure a broader background for future professional advancement.
.
An accounting major is available for students who plan to do graduate work in accounting or to enter the fields of public or private accounting. This major involves more course work than the other majors. Its requirements are outlined below in the course requirements.
An international business major is available for students who are specifically interested in global business careers. This major requires some educational work abroad unless one is an international student.
.
The degrees offered by the CU College of Business, Administration Department are accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC Business Administration Division satisfying the criteria.
