UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS

Business Administration

Dr. Kevin M. Hill, Chairperson

Business administration is a profession practiced

by managers who solve problems and make deci-

sions in the process of leading and guiding an

organizational unit in its efforts to achieve some

inherent goal or objective. Organizational activities

are measured for their effectiveness (the degree to

which organizational goals are accomplished) and

for their efficiency (the cost in resources used to

achieve these goals).

In the Business Department, studies develop from

a common viewpoint that all truth is of God.

Therefore, as led by the Spirit, the student will search

for truth to be applied with wisdom to the glory and

honor of God.

Every business student completes the basic core of

business courses, then takes additional courses in

at least one of the nine Business emphases (1) Ac-

counting, (2) Christian Ministries Administration, (3)

Finance, (4) International Business, (5) Management,

(6) Management Information Systems, (7) Marketing,

(8) Pre-law, (9) Public Relations.

OBJECTIVES

Students with a major in Business Administration

will study the fundamentals of management

theory together with the “tools” used by modern

management practitioners; will explore modern

theories, concepts, and principles of management

and administration; will apply the lessons learned

to contemporary management situations; and

will be encouraged to develop an appetite for

contemporary literature in the dynamic field of

business administration.

BUSINESS DEPARTMENT COURSE

TRANSFER POLICY

The Master’s College Department of Business

Administration seeks to insure the quality of its

curriculum as reflected in its graduates. One way

this quality is safeguarded is through limiting the

coursework which may be transferred into the

program. With this in mind, the following protocol

has been adopted by the business faculty:

1. Only the equivalents of MA090, ECN200, and

ECN210 will be accepted in transfer for TMC

Business courses from a two-year college. No

other courses will be accepted by TMC’s Business

Department from a two-year college.

2. Lower-division courses are not accepted in

transfer for upper-division Business Department

requirements.

3. The Business Department reserves the right to

assess the student’s prior coursework in the relevant

subject area before accepting a course in transfer.

4. Once a student has declared a TMC Business

major, all remaining Business courses must be

completed at TMC.

BUSINESS DEPARTMENT DIRECTED

STUDY COURSE POLICY

There will be no Business Department courses

offered as Directed Study other than internship

courses. A student may appeal this policy if:

1. The student is entering his or her final semester

and there is a course conflict. An appeal on these

grounds will not be considered if the course conflict

involves courses to complete more than the one

required emphasis.

2. The student needs to retake one course and cannot

return to campus to complete his or her degree.

Note about computers

:

Business majors are encouraged

but not required to use a computing device that

operates on a “PC” platform. In several courses, it

is necessary to use functions in Microsoft Excel that

are not available in the Apple version of Excel. Some

higher level Accounting courses also use software that

is not compatible with Apple devices.

EMPHASES

Accounting

Students with a program emphasis in Accounting

will study basic accounting theories and principles as

recognized and practiced by the accounting

profession. Graduates may enter public accounting

(CPA) or management accounting (CMA) careers.

Christian Ministries Administration

This emphasis is designed for those who specifically

desire to minister in an administrative capacity
