Business




Professors: Christensen, Edwards, Oaks, Taylor.

Associate Professors: Barnes, Call, (Chairman, 395 JKB), Daines, Lambert,

McKinnon, Pinney, Stanford.
Assistant Professors: Lee, Schill, Wistisen.
Instructors: Cox, Hatch, Longmore, Parker, Pearce, Smith.

The primary objectives of the Business Management Department are (1) to
prepare students for responsible leadership in their chosen professions; (2) to
train, in depth, students interested in careers in marketing, production, finance,
or other functional areas; and (3) to give students a broad understanding of
individual and group behavior in industry.

Both the content and instructional methods of business management courses
are designed to develop qualities in students which will help them realize their
potential. Emphasis is placed on analytical skill and sound reasoning, insight
and balanced judgment, understanding of human problems in organizations, pro-
ficiency in written and oral communication, and the rigor of learning on one's
own initiative. The Department of Business Management also recognizes its re-
sponsibility to acquaint students with current research in the social sciences,
techniques of decision making, new tools of quantitative analysis, and other
applications of the management sciences. In addition, students are exposed to
changing values and goals in today's society, the social responsibility of business
leadership, the changing role of government in society and international trade,
and the growth of multinational diversified corporations.

The following fields of concentration are administered by the Department of
Business Management: general business, finance, marketing, operations manage-
ment, industrial relations and personnel, and international business. After
completing general education and the college and departmental core require-
ments listed below, a student must elect one of the departmental concentrations.

An automatic composite minor in accounting and economics will have been
earned by those students majoring in the department at the successful comple-
tion of the college and departmental core requirements.

Division of Business Fundamentals. All students who wish to major in business
management register in the Division of Business Fundamentals until they have
completed the College of Business lower-division core requirements and have
completed at least 62 semester hours of approved University credit. Core courses
are as follows:

Math. 108 (or equivalent)

Stat. 221

Comput. Sci. 130

Students who complete these required courses with a grade-point average of
