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.
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 DEPARTMENT COURSE
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
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
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.
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
