Business Administration

The Field

SUNY Delhi's Business Administration program is designed to prepare students for successful business careers or continued management education. Several programs are available:

The Associate in Applied Science program in Business Administration is primarily for students who, after obtaining their degree at Delhi, plan either to pursue a career in business or transfer to a four-year college or university. The Associate in Science program in Business Administration is available for students majoring in Business Administration who wish to transfer the maximum number of credits to a four-year college or university after completing their associate's degree program at Delhi. In order to gain admission to the A.S. program, students must have successfully completed Regents Mathematics Course A in high school. The one-year certificate program in Business Management is primarily for full- or part-time students who seek professional improvement through selected business coursework.

The Instructional Program

The curriculum keeps pace with industry practices and incorporates innovations in management techniques as well as teaching/learning methods. Frequent contact between instructors, faculty advisors, and students is actively encouraged.

Students may participate in SIFE, Students in Free Enterprise. SIFE is a not-for-profit organization sponsored by major corporations whose mission is to work in partnership with higher education and business to provide college students the leadership experience of teaching others how market economics and businesses operate, and how to use this knowledge to better themselves, their communities, and their countries. Work/study internships are also available.

Required courses for the Business Administration program cover a broad range of activities involved in the management of an organization. These include courses in accounting, marketing, finance, computer processing, communication, business law, and human relations. Special emphasis is given to developing the analytical and interpersonal skills needed for successful management careers.

The Business Administration program is designed so that students, in addition to taking required courses, may concentrate on a chosen topical area. These electives broaden graduates' employment opportunities in business, retailing, wholesaling, manufacturing, and service industries. Even greater flexibility is achieved by allowing students to take six credit hours in unrestricted electives, which may be any two three-credit courses offered by the College.

Students in this program will have ample opportunity for exposure to computer applications and uses.

Field trips to business enterprises and classroom visits by representatives from industry and faculty are included in the program. Each student is assigned a faculty advisor who will assist and guide them.
