After comprehensive research, we have made several changes to our bachelors
of science majors. First, each major now has non-business, but related,
courses built directly into the major. This enables students to view
business issues from a multidisciplinary perspective as well as earning
credit towards a complimentary minor.
Second, we have revamped our computer course (now BUSA 211 Business Computer Applications). It is now a three credit course that focuses on 4 goals: problem solving with spreadsheets, database management, websites, and collaborative work in "the cloud". This course will be team taught by faculty and IT staff to ensure quality and relevance of content.
Lastly, our new Business Ethics course will motivate students to look beyond quarterly financial statements to assess the success of a business. Taught from a Christian perspective, this course is meant to be a crucial building block in the formation of Christian business leaders for tomorrow.
