Department of Business
What makes us different at Rochester College’s School of Business? Our business courses are taught from a value-oriented perspective. Our goal is to prepare our students for a life of service and success in all areas of life.
With our focus on excellence in the classroom, our faculty incorporate discussions and activities that focus on ethics, global awareness, technology, teamwork as well as oral and written communication into the coursework.
Students can specialize in one of these areas: Accounting, Business Management, Social Entreprenuership or Sports Management.
The mission of the Department of Business is to prepare young men and women for lives of ethical service and professional achievement in a competitive world.
We achieve this mission by providing a challenging and innovative business program to complement a liberal arts education in an environment that reflects Christian principles, high morals and ethical standards.
The Rochester College BBA pays big dividends. Whether it’s a Fortune 500 multinational or a small business, professionals who hold the BBA degree are well-prepared to succeed in modern business. A business internship provides practical development and useful networking contacts that lead to the right job after graduation.
The strategic leadership program focuses on providing adult learners with knowledge and understanding needed to be effective in a broad range of leadership roles found in large or small, private, public, non-profit, corporate, government, or community organizations. The program explores the complex nature of leadership in modern organizations that requires leaders to be informed, forward-thinking, creative, innovative, motivating, team-building, problem-solving, and adaptive. Students investigate the importance of understanding the culture in decision making as well as the theoretical foundations and practical behaviors and processes that promote positive leadership and organizational growth.
