OBJECTIVES The Department of Business Adminis-tra­ tion offers six curricular emphases leading to a Bachelor of Science degree in business ad­ ministration with concentrations in account­ ing, advertising, finance , marketing, manage­ ment and computer information systems. Each program is structured to give the student broad understanding of the social and economic environment in which Christian business persons function, and provides a common body of knowledge for students who elect this major. Students study economics, finance, management, business law, accounting, and marketing as the core of the major based upon quantita­ tive management skills. The six individual emphases prepare students through addi­ tional specified courses to enter a career field in those areas, or to select a graduate school upon graduation. It is the purpose of the department to prepare highly skilled, technically compe­ tent business persons who have broad preparation in the liberal arts as well, and who can make significant contributions in the world of work or in Christian organiza­ tions they may serve. ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS Admission into Biola University does not guarantee admission into the Business Administration major. Effective with the en­ tering class of Fall 1991, acceptance into the business administration major will be deter­ mined by the student's preparation and per­ formance as assessed by the faculty of the Department of Business Administration. Students must meet certain enrollment and performance eligibility requirements and make formal application to the department, usually during their second year of fulltime studies at Biola. A statement outlining eligi­ bility standards, acceptance criteria, and the application process as they apply to both resident and transfer students is available upon request from the Business Administration Department.
