The Department of Business Administration at Aquinas College is committed
to the development of broadly educated, globally oriented, ethical
professionals, whose high standards of professional competence enable
them to actively contribute to their profession, community and society.
Competent professionals in the business and not-for-profit communities must
be able to think critically, communicate clearly, research effectively, employ
quantitative reasoning, use current technology, and work cooperatively with
others. Our programs encompass both theoretical and application components. The curriculum draws upon and is enhanced by the liberal arts focus of the college.
We expect students to draw upon the perspectives gained from studies as
diverse as philosophy, mathematics, history, religious studies, psychology,
literature, languages, sociology, natural sciences, economics, and the fine
arts. Students must gain an understanding of organized institutions so they
can deal effectively with this phenomenon that shapes so much of their lives.
The Department of Business Administration is committed to working with other departments in the college to provide a strong organizational background for students in other academic majors through individual courses, business minors, and dual majors. >More
