Student Learning Goals

Our “learning goals” form the foundation of the CBA’s curriculum:
  • Demonstrate integrated business knowledge and apply core business fundamentals
  • Demonstrate a global perspective and cross-cultural awareness
  • Use writing skills and oral communication skills to persuade and mobilize action
  • Be informed decision makers
  • Analyze data using quantitative techniques
  • Recognize ethical dilemmas and understand how to address them
  • Develop leadership and collaborative competencies

Achieving these goals will prepare you for success along your path to graduation and beyond.

  • Adding a minor or second major to broaden your experiences and make you more marketable.
