Overview

In our technological society, a successful administrator, entrepreneur, or researcher is one who can understand the impact of change and effectively deal with it. The opinion of a growing number of professionals is that students graduating from programs like Chatham's that emphasize the liberal arts are better prepared to understand and manage change than others more narrowly educated. It is the purpose of our department of business to complement students' liberal arts training by providing them with the fundamental tools necessary to comprehend the technical as well as the human environment in which we work.

Curriculum of the Business Administration programme offered by the Chatham University begins with a set of core courses which cover the basic functions of business and the environment in which business operates. Courses in management, microeconomics, marketing, finance, and accounting introduce students to today’s business environment, and will serve to introduce the student to the basics of strategy, business operations, decision-making, marketing principles, sources and methods of financing business ventures, and internal controls. Two additional courses in macroeconomics and business law/ethics complete the core and promote an understanding of the environment in which business operates.
