Bachelor of Arts / Bachelor of Science in Business At Rockford University, students and faculty address together the concerns of business organizations in a capitalist society. We study economic theory, management and accounting, to be sure. We live in and work in a market economy, so it is imperative that we understand both how it does work and how it should work. We live also in a global economy, so we must understand the implications of globalization. We want students to develop an understanding of the economy and society in which they live so that they can become effective participants in that society. Education for life and civic engagement is the ultimate goal of majoring in economics, business and accounting at Rockford University. EBA Program of Study In order to help students prepare for a life of civic engagement, we offer a liberal arts education and we promote the development of certain fundamental skills. Majors in our department develop the ability to think critically and analytically, to communicate clearly and forcefully with the written and spoken word, and to understand the process and role of decision-making in society. Majors also are advised to complete as much work as possible in mathematics, statistics and computers. In order to understand the society in which we live, students must learn how to evaluate data. Decisions about managing organizations must be informed by data in order to permit those decisions to improve performance. Quantitative applications are made in our courses in order to refine the processes of problem-solving and decision-making. The quantitative portion of the program is absolutely essential for students who hope to attend graduate school. As faculty, we do not regard the acquisition of these skills as an abstract wish. They are identified specifically as components of our courses, and we demonstrate throughout our courses how these skills are acquired and refined. We model the skills in our interactions with students, and in our professional careers. We practice what we preach. The Economics, Business and Accounting Department offers bachelor of arts and bachelor of science degrees along with minors in each discipline.

Careers in administration, banking, law, government, sales, public administration and with international agencies are among student options. Accounting majors have a wide variety of career choices, including public accounting with national, regional or local accounting firms, corporate accounting and government accounting.

Students who complete their 150-hour requirement at Rockford University, with seven additional hours may attain both a B.S. and MBA. Rockford University accounting students have done exceptionally well when taking the CPA exam. EBA Scholarships and Awards Maxine Burritt Knight and Carlton W.

Application required for consideration. EBA Honors Program The honors program supplements the traditional curriculum in economics, business and accounting by providing a unique opportunity for intellectual enrichment and pursuit of academic excellence. The honors courses are designed to explore general topics of interest at an intellectually challenging level using an interdisciplinary and integrative approach to learning. Each course will focus on a general topic – such as globalization, capitalism or entrepreneurship – that transcends disciplines. Students will explore the topic and examine it from different perspectives through reading of original and contemporary material, research and discussion. The honors course is designed to foster and encourage the development of analytical and critical thinking, written and oral communication skills, practical and quantitative applications, teamwork and collaborative learning. Honors courses are team-taught by the faculty in the fields of economics, business and accounting. Qualifying students that demonstrate a passion for learning and are interested in an intellectually challenging and unorthodox approach may take one or both of the following honors courses: ECON, BUS, ACCT 390 Team-taught topical course using an interdisciplinary and integrative approach to learning, emphasizing critical thinking, discussion and collaborative work. ECON, BUS, ACCT 490 Guided and supervised research involving an original idea and using an interdisciplinary and integrative approach across disciplines of accounting, business and economics. The final work is presented at a forum of the faculty and students, and is read and graded by the honors committee consisting of the faculty from the respective fields. This research is treated somewhat similar to a thesis project and is generally viewed very positively by prospective employers and graduate schools, while the content may serve as an excellent source of material for an interview.
