The TimeSaver Program offers majors in business administration leading to a bachelor of arts degree. The curricula prepare the students to enter corporate enterprises, small business, not-for-profit organizations or graduate programs in business. Graduates have positioned themselves to take on greater responsibilities at their current places of employment, many have started their own companies, and others have moved into more challenging positions in a variety of local, regional, national and international firms.
The program of study is based on a solid foundation in the liberal arts to provide students with thinking, writing, communicating, and human and value judgment skills. Many employers are seeking well-educated persons who can contribute in more than one area rather than specialists whose expertise is confined to one area. The goal of the department is to develop the student’s critical analytical, problem-solving, and quantitative decision-making capabilities through a solid grounding in modern business and economic theory. In addition to providing professional training, the department focuses on the application of fundamental principles to a wide variety of organizational situations.
