The fundamental objective of the undergraduate curriculum in Business Administration is to prepare students for managerial roles in business, government, and non-profit organizations. The required courses in the Business Program are designed to cover the various business operations such as Management, Marketing, Accounting, Economics, Finance, Law and Human Resources. The elective courses in Business give students an opportunity to choose one area or a combination of areas for more intensive analysis. The courses in related disciplines are included to ensure the development of understanding and skills that will give depth and meaning to their business applications. Minors in Business Administration and Accounting are offered for students majoring in other Departments. The Marketing major prepares students for a wide variety of careers including public relations, advertising, and merchandising.
The professional manager today is not only required to have special knowledge in business, but also to have an understanding of the humanities, behavioral sciences, social sciences, and natural sciences. To this end, all Business and Marketing major students are required to take 60 liberal arts credits which are designed to enhance their ability to reason logically, to think critically, to develop a value system, and to make decisions ethically.
Students enrolled in accounting and business courses are expected to use the computer lab as part of their assignments.
Articulation with Kingsborough Community College: St. Joseph’s has an articulation agreement with Kingsborough through which KCC students who complete the A.S. degree in Business Administration may transfer to St. Joseph’s for the B.S. in Business Administration.
