Academic Affairs Committee
April 24, 2007
is a bulletin from the Academic Affairs Committee concerning proposed
curricular actions. Please forward any comments or concerns in the
next 10 days to the AAC chair, Premalatha
Junius, G04C Belknap Hall, ext. 4588.
Curricular Action Notice – Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (program change)
Rationale: The new business program eliminates all current business emphases: accounting, international business, management, marketing and general business. The new business program eliminates Travel & Tourism bachelor’s degree and its associate’s degree. The new business program also eliminates the Economics bachelor’s degree. In place is one business program, the BSBA: Bachelor of Science in Business Administration.
The number of course offerings in the new program is designed to phase-in faculty resources [course preparations] consistent with the AACSB accrediting body. The coursework is in the content areas of accounting, business, economics, finance, management, marketing, and travel and tourism. Course prefixes change from the ubiquitous ‘BUS’ prefix, to prefixes which designate the main focus of the course’ content area, as it is no longer clear by emphasis designation.
