A new bachelor of arts in business administration with five distinct concentrations began this fall semester.
“The BA in business administration uniquely prepares students for positions of leadership in organizations located anywhere in the world,” said Liz Capener, chair of undergraduate business programs at Dominican.
Students in the program choose from five concentrations: management, marketing, finance/accounting, e-business/management information systems, and international business.
Courses in this degree program present perspectives based on theory allied to practical applications at use in the business world. The faculty scholars and practitioners who teach in the program come with both a research and business practice background, assuring students of a balanced exposure to multiple viewpoints across their classroom experiences.
Students are encouraged to participate in an internship, study abroad for a semester, and engage in networking opportunities such as becoming an active participant in the Dominican University of California Business Association. An additional benefit of the flexible curriculum is that students transferring from other accredited institutions can typically complete the BA in business administration in two years.
In spring 2005 Dominican will begin a new degree completion program in Ukiah in cooperation with Mendocino College. This program will allow students to complete two years of study at Mendocino and 2 years at Dominican, earning a bachelor of arts in strategic management from Dominican.
“This degree completion program is all about quality and convenience,” said Lorrie Crivello, director of graduate and Pathways admissions. “It blends classroom and online instruction, and the semester is split into two convenient 8-week sessions.”
Depending on the number of units transferred, program can be completed in 5 to 6 semesters. Classes will be held at Dominican’s Ukiah Center or Mendocino College.
“The strategic management major is designed for students who want to take their life and world experience to the next level by earning a university degree with a business major,” said Terry Ratcliff, executive director of adult and extended education.
“The courses are designed to provide students with a thorough grounding in classic business theory and knowledge, while incorporating challenges such as managing change in a dynamic economy,” Ratcliff said.
