This program provides students with an understanding of the complex environment in which organizations function as well as the challenges that decision makers face in organizations. The program is designed for students who are pursuing two majors, and thus requires a second major of the student’s choosing, outside of Business, Management and Accounting.
    
The bachelor of arts can serve as a complementary degree for students who plan to pursue a career in a second major or who are developing a depth necessary for pursuing a particular interest. Common second majors include: creative writing, art, modern language, economics, government, psychology, and biology.
    
Depending on the second major, students with the bachelor of arts pursue graduate study and careers in art, journalism, law, public policy, medicine and health care, human resources, marketing, film, and education, among others.
