Morehouse created the area of Business Administration and Economics in 1938 as a department. In 1999, we were upgraded into a division with two departments: the Department of Business Administration that offers a B. A. degree in Business Administration and the Department of Economics that offers a B. A. degree in Economics. Students with a degree in Business Administration also must choose a concentration of Accounting, Finance, Management or Marketing. The Division offers five minors: Economics, Business Administration, Leadership Studies, Accounting, and Sales.
We are committed in the Division to ensure that our men are well prepared for the world beyond Morehouse and the classroom. We have a strong Office of Career Services to assist our students in finding employment or to pursue more studies. To ensure the men are ready for these opportunities, the Division operates student development programs, many coordinated through the Morehouse Business Association, the official student group of Business Administration and Economics.
Economics provides students with the analytical and theoretical skills necessary to make serious human choices and rational decision as worthy of being cast and treated in an explicitly scientific framework. As such, it provides a rigorous foundation for the causes and consequences of decision making in general, as they apply to the various disciplines in business. The quantitative skills acquired in the discipline allow students to be competitive domestically and globally in the public and private sectors. The department has two tracks – Mathematics and Non-Mathematics. The Mathematics track prepares students for graduate school in economics, while the Non-Mathematics track prepares students for the marketplace. The department hosts a chapter of Omicron Delta Epsilon, the International Honor Society for Economics.
The Business Administration program seeks to develop men of character and intelligence who possess the skills necessary to compete in the world of business with an entrepreneurial mindset and global leadership skills. Our expectation is that these men will use their intellectual, moral, and economic power to effect change in the world. Accredited by AACSB International, the gold standard of business accreditations, the department hosts a chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma, the Business Honor Society for accredited institutions.
The Division of Business Administration and Economics Office of Career Services provide resources and guidance to students and division alumni within two years of graduation to help clarify their interests, skills, and values and gain the experience necessary to successfully navigate the competitive job and graduate school markets. The Career Services in Business Administration and Economics staff can help students across the campus secure internships, connect to alumni employers and key executives, and are committed to providing necessary resources so that our students may conduct their own tailored job and graduate school searches that fit their individual needs.
