The Program

Business plays a major role in the structure and functioning of contemporary society. Rapid changes in technology, environmental pressures on natural resources, structural shifts in the economy, changes in consumer preferences, global competition, and employment dislocation in many industries all necessitate a better understanding of the role and nature of business in today's society.

VIU's B.A., Minor in Business, contains a liberal arts component to improve students' understanding of the intellectual and applied linkages between Social Sciences, Humanities and Business. Also, combined with studies in other areas, it will provide students with business knowledge and skills that will enhance their opportunities for employment. Students will develop an appreciation and understanding of how to achieve organizational objectives within the constraints and opportunities of a diverse and turbulent external environment. Lectures, seminars, research projects and case studies are augmented by computer simulation exercises, "live" field exercises, and computer lab-based instruction.
