The Academic Program

The focus of the Department of Decision Sciences (DS) is the use of information technology and quantitative methods to improve the management of organizations.

Undergraduate Study

BBA in Management and Information Systems

The subject of management information systems (MIS) encompasses the entire system of information flows in an organization. It addresses the design, development, and implementation of the "information-based nervous system" for the organization. It deals with information as an organizational resource and information-related management functions at the operational, tactical, and strategic levels. Upon graduation, the MIS major is qualified for positions such as information analysts/programmers in organizations, field service and marketing representatives for information technology companies, and consultants who provide services to organizations about information system development. The market demand for MIS students continues to grow.

Requirements

  • DS 352, 353, 354, 357, 366
  • One technical elective

The technical elective may be used to meet the college's non-introductory elective requirement, but it must be taken for a grade.

Degrees Offered: BBA in finance, BBA in real estate

The Academic Program

The department offers courses in finance, business economics, business law, real estate, insurance, and quantitative methods. As the academic home of two majors-finance and real estate-and six BBA required courses, this is a diverse department of great breadth.

Undergraduate Study

BBA in Finance

The major in finance (FIN) develops analytical skills in the planning, management, and control of financial resources to achieve the financial goals of the organization. Central to that task is the evaluation of the risk and return consequences of financial decisions. The major financial decisions studied are the selection of assets (equipment, buildings, inventories, securities, etc.) and the choice among financing alternatives (selling stock, borrowing from a bank, issuing bonds, etc.). Students may select course sequences that concentrate on business financial management, investment management, management of financial institutions, or international finance.
The major prepares students for positions and career advancement in financial institutions, retail, wholesale, and manufacturing firms; securities institutions; and personal financial planning.

Requirements

  • FIN 305, 307, 311
  • Two elective courses from FIN 315, 321, 330, 331, 360, or 390

With the approval of the department chair, one of the three required courses may be replaced with a finance elective and/or one elective may be replaced with an upper-division CBA course.

BBA in Real Estate

The real estate (RE) major deals with the acquisition, ownership, and management of real property assets such as shopping centers, office buildings, industrial parks, and housing. Majors acquire a broad, multidisciplinary background designed to make them effective in controlling assets involving significant wealth. Knowledge areas in the real estate major include finance, investment analysis, marketing, valuation, law, management, and international business. Emphasis is given to real property asset management in the context of business and government institutions.

The major prepares students for a broad range of international careers in consulting, mortgage banking, pension fund advisement, trust and estate management, appraisal, brokerage, construction, real estate development, and government. Majors have the opportunity to obtain real world experience in internship as part of their course work.

Requirements

  • RE 300, 310, and 330
  • Two elective courses from
  • ACC 307, 321; DS 455; ECON 340, 358, 495; FIN 321;
  • MKT 321, 331, 351, 371, 381
