Department of Business Administration General Information

The Department of Business Administration offers programs for students planning careers in virtually all business or business related occupations. The Department offers a Bachelor of Business Administration degree, a Bachelor of Science degree, and a two-year Associate of Science degree in Information Technology. The Bachelor of Science degree is in Information Technology and is designed to provide students with many opportunities in this dynamic, growing field.

A student choosing the Bachelor of Business Administration degree will participate in a common core curriculum that includes foundational courses in accounting, computer applications, economics, finance, law, management, marketing and statistics. In addition to the business core, students pursuing the Bachelor of Business Administration will be required to choose a concentration in Accounting, Community Development, Information Technology, E-commerce, Digital Multimedia Communication, Management, Marketing, or Music Business. Graduates receive a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree indicating the chosen area of concentration. The BBA is generally considered to be the equivalent of a double major in Business Administration and the area of concentration.

The Accounting Concentration provides training for professional opportunities in both public and private accounting as well as governmental and not-for-profit organizations. Students may choose the traditional four year degree or the 150 hour Professional Accountancy degree. Completion of this program will qualify the student to sit for the CPA exam in a majority of states. Students preparing for the CPA examination should consult with a member of the Accounting faculty to ensure that students meet the licensing requirements in the states where they wish to practice.

The Community Development concentration will require the student to complete the business core curriculum while also completing a significant number of courses from the Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences. A student completing the requirements for this degree will have many opportunities in both the non-profit and traditional business sectors. The primary focus of this degree is to allow a student to use his/her business background to improve the lives of families in communities around the world.

For those interested in incorporating a technology perspective into their BBA, the Trevecca Institute of Computer Information Technology (TICIT) within the Business Administration Department offers three computer-related concentrations including Information Technology, E-commerce, and Digital Multimedia Communication. These concentrations provide hands-on, real world opportunities to apply information technologies to business problems. Students interested in working in technology companies in non-IT areas, or those interested in systems analysis, web design, project management, or business programming will find this concentration an excellent fit.

A student wishing to pursue opportunities in the music industry in a nonperformance capacity should strongly consider the concentration in Music Business. Course work is designed to acquaint the student with the music industry and includes instruction in music publishing, concert management, studio production, music merchandising, and public relations.

Companies are constantly looking for motivated people to help sell their products as well as to keep their customers satisfied and informed. The Concentration in Marketing is designed to prepare students to meet these demands by emphasizing principles of good communication, including basic sales techniques, advertising strategies, and the art of providing quality customer service.

The Management Concentration prepares students for a variety of opportunities in the management of enterprises. Career choices range from small entrepreneurial ventures to positions with Fortune 500 companies and from generalist roles to specialization such as operations management, human resources management, and quality management.

The Business Administration Department also houses the Trevecca Institute of Computer Information Technology (TICIT). The institute provides several degree opportunities for those interested in pursuing careers in Information Technology. In addition to the BBA degree with its concentrations in information technology, E-commerce, and digital multimedia communication, the institute's primary offering is a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (BSIT). This program, one of only a few in Tennessee, provides comprehensive and substantial hands-on work in most key technologies being used by businesses today. The institute offers concentrations in three areas of study including specialized computing, web development, and digital graphic design and multimedia. The institute has partnered with IBM, Microsoft, and Oracle, among others, through their academic initiatives, to provide state of the art software and technologies within the programs of study. It is predicted that information technology will rank as the top area for which career opportunities will exist over the next seven years both in Tennessee and nationally.

The institute also offers an Associate of Science degree in Information Technology (ASIT) for those interested in a 2-year degree and a minor for those in other disciplines who seek to integrate learning in the area of information technology.

The Business Administration Department offers a total of nine minors for those desiring to integrate business and information technology learning with their chosen primary discipline. In addition, there is a unique summer sales internship program available to students in the department.

Trevecca Institute of Computer Information Technology

"Get your TICIT for Life and Leadership in the IT World"

Mission Statement

The Trevecca Institute of Computer Information Technology provides education in information technology to prepare students for careers of excellence that glorify and honor God through stewardship, leadership, and service.

Objectives

  1. Provide students a state-of-the-art information technology program with content that matches the best programs in the country.
  2. Establish and maintain a program that meets the accreditation criteria set forth by the ACM Special Interest Group for Information Technology Educators (SIGITE).
  3. Assist students to acquire skills in the four key information technology domains of software development, databases, networks, and web technologies.
  4. Provide education that is rigorous and challenging to the students and motivates them to excel.
  5. Prepare students to successfully enter the field of their choice.

Learning Outcomes

Graduates from the programs in the institute will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate knowledge of current IT languages, databases, and technologies.
  2. Solve business problems using information technologies and critical thinking.
  3. Clearly communicate business requirements and technical information.
  4. Build complex, integrated, technology-based systems in organizational/team contexts.
  5. Obtain employment in the student's chosen profession and/or be admitted to and succeed in graduate/professional programs.

Requirements

The TICIT provides a wealth of opportunities to those students serious about becoming the best in their chosen discipline. The Institute currently offers AS and BS degrees in Information Technology. Students will choose one of three concentrations as a primary domain of focus. These include Web Development, Digital Graphic Design and Multimedia, and Specialized Computing. The Specialized Computing concentration allows students to create an individualized course of study in computing technologies that fits their desired career objectives. Some possibilities include computer science, Windows technologies, networking, and database technologies.

Most courses taken by majors in the Institute require prerequisites so students should carefully plan their course of study with their advisor. One internship/cooperative experience is required for graduation. It should be a minimum of 165 hours and is usually taken during the summer following the junior year or during the spring or summer of the senior year.
