Mission Statement Division of Business: Believing in the power of truth, the division is committed to developing students who are grounded in the liberal arts and Dominican traditions. Upon graduation, the students will have the ability to think critically, logically, and ethically while applying the specialized business knowledge and skills mastered here to respond effectively to the rapidly evolving demands of our communities and organizations in the global economy. The major in Business Administration is designed to provide students a breadth of business knowledge in a wide variety of functional business areas. In fact, the curriculum provides a core set of courses covering virtually all functional areas of business. Additionally, the curriculum helps students develop critical workplace and life skills in the areas of critical thinking, presentation, writing, team, technology, and interpersonal communication. Finally, when integrated with the Ohio Dominican University liberal arts core curriculum, students develop a greater sensitivity to the possibilities and limitations of the human condition and refine their capacity to make informed and ethical decisions.In addition to a broad general business and liberal arts education, students will further select one of the following options:
**Emphasis not required for students admitted to the Five-Year (4+1) MBA Program or those with an approved University minor.***Students are not permitted to complete both the minor in management and the business administration major with an emphasis in management; they must choose one or the other.
The minor in Business Administration is designed for non-business majors interested in acquiring foundational knowledge and skills in five business discipline areas including accounting, finance, marketing, management, and economics. Students majoring in technical, scientific, or artistic fields who envision business applications for their primary major interest will benefit from a business minor. This would include, for example, art majors who envision opening or operating a gallery, healthcare workers who envision operating a clinic, or the information technology worker who aspires to manage the IT function in an organization. The minor in business administration is not available to students working toward a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Accounting, Business Administration, Finance, or International Business.
Students who complete the minor in business administration are eligible to apply for the 4+1 MBA Program. Depending on the primary major and available elective credits, a student may be able to complete his or her undergraduate degree and a MBA in as few as five years. Some majors will take a little longer.
