At the undergraduate level, we provide the Bachelor of Business Administration degree with majors in accounting, economics, finance, information systems, logistics and intermodal transportation, management, and marketing. At the graduate level, we provide the Master of Business Administration, online MBA, Master of Accounting, WebMACC, and online Master of Science in Applied Economics degrees, as well as a Graduate Certificate in Enterprise Resources Planning (ERP), to prepare students for accounting and management positions of significant responsibility.
