A Message from the President
Viewed from our tree-lined campus, the Manhattan skyline symbolizes to our students the bright lights within their reach. But what most defines their aspirations is the front gate of Queens College. Whether their journeys began in a nearby neighborhood or in a village in Korea or Kenya, students who enter our front gate meet a faculty and staff who will inspire them and help them fulfill the promise of their potential. In 1937, undaunted by the Great Depression, Queens College welcomed its first students, many of them the sons and daughters of the newest Americans. Queens College was known then as “the College of the Future,” a prophetic phrase. In every decade since, extraordinary students have passed through our front entrance and received a fine education that prepared them to live up to our motto, Discimus ut Serviamus: We Learn so that We May Serve. As the great poet William Butler Yeats said, “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” Although the goal is always to light the fire of intellectual curiosity in our students, the way in which this is done changes through the years. To be sure we at Queens College are lighting fires as effectively as possible, we recently revised our curriculum, the first major revision the college has undertaken in almost a quarter century, a time that has witnessed an explosion of knowledge and a revolution in technology. The curriculum at Queens College is now carefully designed so that when our students graduate, they will have the ability to: think critically; address complex problems; communicate their ideas clearly; explore various cultures; and use modern technologies and information resources. If you are a high-achieving student, you should know that Queens College participates in the City University of New York’s Macaulay Honors College, which offers terrific perks such as free tuition and a free laptop computer. We also offer honors programs in the Humanities, Mathematics and Natural Sciences, and Social Sciences. And all our students can take advantage of countless opportunities to study abroad and intern with top researchers and professionals. It will be easy for you to become involved on campus as we have over 100 clubs and sports teams to choose from, including 19 teams that compete in Division II sports. And our award-winning Freshman Year Initiative will hook you up with a small group of students you can attend classes and study with, so it feels as if you are starting your college years with a group of old friends. There is no better time to become a Queens College student. I invite you to learn more about the extraordinary learning community that is Queens College.

James Muyskens President of Queens College

Queens College Today

Founded in 1937, Queens College is dedicated to the idea that a first-rate education should be accessible to talented people of all backgrounds and financial means. The college’s strong liberal arts curriculum—with over 100 undergraduate and graduate programs—assures students an education for a fulfilling life and career. The mission of Queens College is to prepare students to become leading citizens of an increasingly global society. The college accomplishes this by offering a rigorous education in the liberal arts and sciences under the guidance of a faculty dedicated to teaching and expanding the frontiers of knowledge. Students also can take advantage of the college’s numerous opportunities to study abroad and to intern with leading companies and top researchers. Queens College students graduate with the ability to think critically, address complex problems, explore various cultures, and use modern technologies and information resources. The Princeton Review’s America’s Best Colleges annually lists the college for its outstanding academics, generous financial aid packages, relatively low costs, and diversity. Indeed, the students of Queens College represent a vibrant mix of cultures; they hail from 170 different countries and speak more than 90 native languages, providing an extraordinary educational environment. It would be easy to think of Queens College as a 77-acre city with a population of over 20,000 students, faculty, and staff. The college offers all the benefits of a city—excellent cultural attractions including the only comprehensive art museum in the borough of Queens,

readings by renowned writers, performing arts events, scholarly conferences, and numerous places to eat—on a surprisingly peaceful and attractive campus with a magnificent view of the Manhattan skyline. Students find the campus a comfortable place to be, with new cybercafés and over 100 clubs and sports in which they can participate. Queens is also the only City University college that participates in Division II sports. Recently the college opened its first residence hall, The Summit, an environment-friendly building that features fully furnished two- and four-bedroom suites. Funded by the State of New York, Queens College serves all the people of the state. The campus is located off Exit 24 of the Long Island Expressway (I-495) on Kissena Boulevard in Flushing, close to the Long Island Railroad and New York City public transportation. EnROLLMEnt Queens College, with the most rigorous admissions standards in the City University system, has a student population that is achievement oriented. Over 20,000 students are enrolled in all divisions. Our students are dedicated to learning; over 40% are the first in their families to attend college, and two-thirds work at least part-time to support their education. StUDEnt AcHIEVEMEnt Recent graduates have won fellowships, scholarships, and assistantships for study at many of the country’s

leading graduate schools, including Yale, Columbia, Duke, Sarah Lawrence, and MIT. A number of our students have received special awards for graduate study, most notably several recent Salk Fellowships, Marshall Scholarships, a Goldwater Scholarship, a Truman Scholarship, a Clark Foundation Fellowship, a Fulbright Grant, and a National Security Education Program (NSEP) Boren Scholarship.

FAcULty Queens College has an outstanding faculty of scholars who care deeply about teaching, research, and community issues. Over the years they have received numerous fellowships and research grants, including two Guggenheim Awards and two Fulbright Grants, plus a recent $19.5 million award from the U.S. Department of Energy, one of the largest grants the college has ever received. The City University of New York (CUNY) has recognized the excellence of the faculty by honoring a number of its members with the title of Distinguished Professor in fields as diverse as chemistry and biochemistry, economics, English, earth and environmental sciences, history, Italian American studies, physics, psychology, and sociology. For day and evening classes, there are more than 1,000 faculty (including adjuncts).

Paying for College

Students who need financial assistance to help meet their college expenses should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) available at www.fafsa.ed.gov and the New York State Aid Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) application available at www.hesc.com. For further information regarding the aid application process, please visit our website at www.qc.cuny.edu/fao. The Financial Aid Office is located in Jefferson Hall, Room 202. Our phone number is 718-997-5100. The office is open from 9 am to 4 pm, Monday through Friday, and on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, when classes are in session, from 5 to 7 pm. Counselors are available to advise you regarding the financial aid process. THE COST OF EDUCATION The cost of education is an important consideration when deciding upon attending college. In general, a student budget consists of the direct educational costs of tuition, fees, books, and supplies, and those costs incurred by virtue of attendance, such as transportation and lunch. In addition, you will have recreational and personal expenses. If you are a self-supporting (independent) student, you will also have the day-to-day expenses of housing, food, clothing, and medical care. Student Resources In reviewing your budget, you should consider the resources you will have from earnings and savings, the amount your parents can contribute, and any

benefits you receive such as Social Security, veterans’ benefits, unemployment, or public assistance. Summer employment can help you meet the first costs of enrollment, and you should plan to save money from such earnings. Cash will be needed right away for books, supplies, and transportation. Financial Aid Programs If available resources are not sufficient to cover the cost of your attendance, you should look into the financial aid available. Financial assistance, provided through the college, is intended for eligible students who need assistance in meeting costs. “Packaging” Financial Aid Rather than using just one source to finance your education, a combination of monies from all the programs for which you are eligible may be used. This system for allocating aid is called packaging. Funds will be allocated first to meet the basic costs of attendance (tuition, fees) and, if funding permits, other living expenses will then be addressed, such as books and transportation. Your need for aid is determined by an analysis of the information contained in your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). What follows is a brief description of the financial aid programs available to eligible undergraduate students at Queens College. The descriptions are based on current statutes and regulations and are subject to change.

For additional information about application procedures and award and loan schedules, please visit our website at www.qc.cuny.edu/fao or contact the Financial Aid Office.* NEW YORK STATE PROGRAMS TUITION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (TAP) Application Procedures Applications must be filed annually. Students must first fill out the FAFSA and then a separate TAP application. The deadline for the 2010–11 academic year is May 1, 2011. The deadline for the 2011-2012 academic year is May 1, 2012. The New York State Higher Education Services Corporation (HESC) determines your eligibility based on the information provided on your application.

*Note: In compliance with the regulations of the City University of New York Board of Trustees, students who are delinquent and/or in default in any of their financial accounts with the college, the university, or an appropriate state or federal agency for which the university acts as either a distributing or certifying agent, and students who have not completed exit interviews as required by the Federal Perkins Loan Program, the Federal Family Education Loan Programs, and the William D. Ford Federal Direct Student Loan Program, will not be permitted to complete registration, or issued a copy of their grades, a transcript of academic record, certificate, or degree, nor are they eligible to receive funds under the federal campus-based student assistance programs or the federal Pell Grant Program unless the designated officer, in exceptional hardship cases and consistent with federal and state regulations, waives in writing the application of this regulation.

NEW YORk StAtE TUItIOn ASSIStAncE PROGRAM (TAP) AcADEMIc REqUIREMEntS (Including all other NYS Scholarship and Award Programs) To be eligible for a TAP award, students must be enrolled for at least 12 credits or the equivalent. Courses may be counted toward full-time study only if they are applicable toward a degree, as described in the college Bulletin. Electives are acceptable when taken in accordance with published degree requirements. A student may take courses not applicable to a degree in a given semester as long as the coursework is above the minimum full-time requirement of 12 credits. Undergraduate students may receive TAP awards for 8 semesters; SEEK students may receive TAP awards for 10 semesters. Effective with the 2010-11 academic year, TAP is available for undergraduate study only. To receive each TAP payment: ■ You must have completed a specific number of credits in the previous TAP semester. ■ You must have accumulated a specific number of credits toward your degree. ■ You must maintain a specific minimum GPA (grade-point average). ■ You must have declared a major by the time you complete 60 credits. ■ Credits must be needed to meet degree requirements for the program in which you are enrolled. There are three different requirement charts on this page. Students will be evaluated depending on when they received their first TAP/NYS Scholarship payment and whether or not they are in a remedial program. REpEAtED COURSES Repeated courses in which you have already received a passing grade cannot be included in meeting the TAP fulltime study requirements except in the following instances: 1. The course can be repeated and credit earned each time. 2. You have received a passing grade that is unacceptable in your particular curriculum.

Title IV Academic Progress In order for students to continue to receive federal financial aid (Title IV aid), they are required to complete their coursework in a timely fashion. To ensure that a student is making quantitative progress throughout the course of study, the University has established a minimum percentage of credits a student must successfully complete each academic year for the purpose of Title IV aid programs. Students will be measured against these satisfactory academic progress standards at the end of the Spring term to determine eligibility for receipt of Title IV aid for the upcoming academic year. Undergraduate Students In order to be making satisfactory academic progress toward a degree, for purposes of receipt of Title IV Federal Student Assistance, an undergraduate student must achieve at least the GPA required for probationary status at the institution; after two years of enrollment at the college, at least a C average, or its equivalent, or academic standing consistent with the requirements for graduation; and accumulate credits toward the degree according to the following standards:

A. 150% CAP: Students may not attempt more than 150% of the credits normally required for completion of the degree. (All students must meet this minimum standard.) B. Regular Standard: If a student has attempted fewer than 150% of the total program credits, his or her accumulated (or earned) credits must be equal to or greater than two-thirds the cumulative credits attempted at the institution. C. Conditional Standard: If the above regular standard is not met but the student has attempted fewer than 150% of the total program credits, eligibility may be retained by meeting the following conditional standard: ■ for baccalaureate programs, student’s accumulated (or earned) credits must be equal to or greater than ([75 x cumulative credits attempted] – 18); Appeal/Reinstatement Undergraduate students who fall beneath the conditional undergraduate standard may appeal by filing an appeal application through the College Counseling and Resource Center in Frese Hall. These appeals will be evaluated for mitigating circumstances resulting from events such as personal illness, injury, personal tragedy, changes in academic program, and the reasonableness of the student’s capability for improvement to meet the appropriate standard for the degree program in which the student is enrolled. A successful appeal would result in the granting of a one-year probation period for the student to improve the academic record to meet the appropriate standard for the degree program in which the student is enrolled. Note: Recipients of federal financial aid who withdraw completely from classes during any term may be required to return all or a portion of their federal aid received for that term.

Federal Rules for the Treatment of Federal Student Aid Funds of Students Who Withdraw from School Requirements stipulate that when a student withdraws from all classes during a semester, the amount of Student Financial Aid (SFA) program assistance that a student has earned is determined on a prorated basis. If either the student or the college (on the student’s behalf) received less assistance than the amount earned, the student or the college will be able to receive these additional funds. Students who have received more than they have earned must repay the excess funds. If students complete 30% of the semester, they earn 30% of the aid they were originally scheduled to receive. Only when students have completed at least 60% of the semester will they have earned all the aid they are scheduled to receive. If you withdraw during the semester, you could owe the government a refund. If you wish to return to school, you would not be eligible for any aid until you have repaid the government. If the Bursar is required to return a portion of the money the college received for your tuition, you will be billed for that amount. The college’s Financial Aid Policy considers individuals

who withdraw unofficially from all classes as never having attended unless they can prove the dates they were in attendance. They will be required to repay all the aid they received. Please see a financial aid advisor before withdrawing.

Chair: PoKay Ma Department Office: Science Building D346, 718-997-3400; Fax: 718-997-3445 Professors: Chabora, Savage-Dunn, Waldman, Zakeri; Associate Professors: Baker, Boissinot, Ma, Short, Sperling, Weinstein; Assistant Professors: Dennehy, Fath, Hickerson, Glickman-Holtzman, Lahti, Melendez; Laboratory Technicians: Birne, Castillo, David, Freilich, Tessitore; Department Secretaries: Capellan, Clement; Professors Emeriti: Geller, Michels, Mundinger, Roze, Szalay, Wasserman; Associate Professors Emeriti: Alsop, Calhoon, Koepfer, Nathanson, Rifkin Majors Offered: Biology (State Education Code 26453) and Biology-Secondary Education (State Education Code 26453) The Biology Department offers the biology major with two concentrations—General Biology and BiologyEducation—as well as the biology minor. Students who choose one of these options must consult with an appropriate faculty advisor early in their course of studies. Faculty advisors are available for students interested in general biology, biology-education, evening studies, transfer and permit courses, second baccalaureate, interdisciplinary studies, and graduate (master’s and

doctoral) studies. Inquire at the office (SB D346) or call 718-997-3400 for appropriate advisor and office hours. The biology major provides students with a foundation for a variety of professional options. Upon graduation, they may find employment as technicians in health-related, industrial, or university laboratories. Those desiring a research career in the governmental, private, or academic sector should plan to continue their education at the graduate level. Such a career may be focused toward work in the field and/or in the laboratory. This concentration is valuable to those interested in consumer protection services, environmental law, forestry, conservation, and scientific and medical illustration or writing. Government opportunities exist in the Departments of Agriculture, State, Interior, Commerce, Health and Human Services, and Treasury. This concentration is also the traditional route to professional schools leading to careers in medicine, dentistry, optometry, and other health-related vocations. The Biology-Education concentration, a program of study coordinated with the Division of Education, is for students who want to meet the requirements for teaching biology in middle, junior high, and senior high schools. Questions concerning this major should be referred to the Biology-Education Advisor. Students also should consult with an advisor in either the Elementary & Early Childhood Education Department (EECE) or the Secondary Education & Youth Services Department (SEYS) to determine the education requirements for New York State certification. NOnmaJOr COurses The department offers survey and topic-oriented courses (designated as the 001–099 series) that have been designed for nonmajors. Most of these courses have recitation/demonstration sections rather than formal laboratories.

Department Awards The department offers the following prizes and awards: the Donald E. Lancefield Award, for excellence in biology, to be awarded to the biology major with the highest grade-point average; the Darwin Prize, for the biology major with the second highest gradepoint average who has demonstrated an interest in research; the Laura H. and Arthur L. Colwin Prize, for excellence in undergraduate research, to be awarded to a biology major who is not a pre-professional student; the Muriel & Philip Feigelson Award, to a graduating senior majoring in biology who has done the best undergraduate research and has also demonstrated significant academic achievement; the Adele Mae Gottschalk Scholarship Fund, to provide a tuition scholarship each year for a female student in her sophomore, junior, or senior year who intends to pursue a medical career; the Max K. Hecht Scholarship Fund, to a junior or graduating senior who is considered to be an outstanding biology major, with accomplishments in academic research studies (preference will be given to students interested in organismic biology, Max’s field); and the Victor J. Jules Scholarship, awarded to biology majors who: (1) have demonstrated financial need, (2) have filed a concentration plan as a major and completed or are in the process of completing at least 6 credits of electives in biology, and (3) have an overall GPA of at least 3.0 (first consideration will be given to eligible sophomores and then to juniors; this endowed scholarship is to be used for educational expenses). Evening Session Advisor: Inquire at the department office. For students who wish to major in biology but can only attend during evening hours, the department will offer in the evening session, on a rotating basis, a sufficient number of advanced courses to permit completion of a major in biology within a six-year period.

Economics is a social science that seeks to develop a broad understanding of how an economic system

operates on both the microeconomic level of individual markets and on the macroeconomic level of economywide aggregates. Traditionally, economists have studied the production, consumption, and distribution of goods and services. Important topics include the role of prices, competitive markets, monopolies, economic growth, the business cycle, trade, and income inequality. In recent decades, economists have studied new issues including fertility decisions, voting behavior, the effects of legal systems on economic growth, the existence of ghettos, the impact of education policies on labor market outcomes, and the impact of technology on individuals and businesses. Economics majors are taught economic theory, statistical methods, and analytical skills to evaluate the impact of economic policy. Courses in economics prepare the student for graduate work in economics, business, and public administration; and for professional schools such as law, journalism, and social work. Our majors acquire skills that allow them to work successfully in government, financial services, insurance, business, and health administration. Training in economics also helps to prepare those who want to teach economics or social studies on a secondary level or who wish to do economic research. Students who plan to pursue graduate work in economics, statistics, and business administration should also take courses in mathematics. Most graduate schools require as a minimum MATH 151 and 152. Department Awards The Economics Department offers the following awards: the Barham Scholarships; the Steve E. Burdman Memorial Award, given by the Delta Chapter of Omicron Delta Epsilon to a graduating economics major who is also an active member of Omicron Delta Epsilon, for a combination of scholastic achievement and service; the Persia Campbell Award, given for an outstanding undergraduate research paper in economics; the Economics Department Faculty Award, given for

outstanding contribution in the classroom; the Arthur D. Gayer Memorial Award, awarded to a graduating senior who has concentrated in economics and has achieved a record of superior scholarship in this field; the M. Anne Hill Award; the Henry S. Miller Award, given to a graduating economics major who has contributed the most distinguished service in advancing the department’s professional interests; the Matthew Simon Memorial Award, presented to a graduating senior who has concentrated in economics and achieved a record of superior scholarship in the field (preference will be given to students who are planning graduate work in economics); the Wall Street Journal Student Achievement Award, presented to an economics major with a record of superior scholarship (preference will be given to students planning graduate work in management or public administration); and the William Withers Award, given to a graduating economics major who has demonstrated outstanding scholarship, creativity, and intellectual curiosity. Honors in Economics The Economics Department has two honors options: Honors in Economics and High Honors in Economics. The Honors in Economics program requires that students maintain a 3.5 average or better in all economics courses. High Honors in Economics requires that students (1) take ECON 392W; (2) write a senior thesis in conjunction with ECON 392W; (3) maintain a 3.5 average or better in all economics courses; and (4) obtain an A– or better in ECON 392W (or 392W plus 134W or 135W). Honors in Finance/International Business/ Actuarial Studies for Business Honors in Finance/International Business/Actuarial Studies requires that students maintain a 3.5 average or better in all courses taken for the Finance/International Business/Actuarial Studies for Business Majors.

THE EcONOmicS MaJOR See the box on the next page for the specific require– ments for the major.

THE EcONOmicS MiNOR See the box on the next page for the specific require– ments for the minor. Students should consult with a faculty advisor and complete a concentration form as soon as they have decided to minor in economics. Economics Honor Society Economics or business students with a GPA of 3.3 or better can join the college’s chapter of the International Honor Society in Economics, Omicron Delta Epsilon. Economics and Business Club Students meet during the semester, share ideas, schedule presentations, and make field trips. Fed Challenge Interested students can participate in the Annual Fed Challenge, a college-level competition designed to promote a greater understanding of how the Federal Reserve Bank System develops and implements U.S. monetary policy. A Queens College team will be selected and prepared for the competition. For more information, please contact Professor Harvey Gram. BacHElOR Of BUSiNESS AdmiNiStRatiON Queens College offers students the opportunity to pursue a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree. The BBA provides a solid business education that responds to the demand of employers for specific quantitative and technological competencies. Data analysis and spreadsheet modeling play a central role in our integrated curriculum. Teamwork and group projects are also critical ingredients that help ensure that graduates have sufficient practice in communicating ideas so they will appear both polished and poised. The strong liberal arts courses at the college help build the foundation of character needed for graduates to respond ethically to the pressures of business life.

The BBA programs give students a firm foundation for success in today’s highly competitive global business environment, as well as for success in graduate study in business and other areas, such as law. Students are trained not just in narrowly defined “business” disciplines. Instead, they learn to communicate both orally and in writing; they are prepared to take advantage of developing technology; and educated to deal with an increasingly integrated world. This means understanding the development of regional economies, such as the European Union and Eastern Europe and the economies of Africa, Asia, and Latin America. It means understanding the relationship between the developed and the developing worlds. It also means understanding the impact of economic and demographic diversity on business and markets. Admission to the BBA Program Students may apply to any of the business majors upon completion of ACCT 101 and 102, and ECON 101 and 102, each with a grade of C– or better, and with an average in those courses of B– (2.7) or better. Transfer students may apply to the business majors if they have completed the equivalent courses at their original institution and can demonstrate that they have met the grade requirement. No more than 21 transferred credits may be applied toward the requirements for the chosen concentration (business fundamentals and concentration courses). A grade of C– or better must be earned in any transferred courses. Clubs and Activities The Economics and Business Club, Economics Honor Society, and Fed Challenge are all open to BBA students. Requirements for the BBA The specific requirements for the BBA degree are described in the box on the next page. All students wishing to earn a BBA must take the Business

Majors are required to file a concentration form during or before their junior year. All majors must see a department advisor before enrolling in courses beyond ECON 101 and 102. Economics majors who have not completed ECON 205 and 206 by the start of their junior year must take ECON 205 and 206 during their junior year. If neither ECON 205 nor 206 has been taken at the start of the junior year, at least one must be taken during the student’s first semester as a junior. If one of the two courses has been completed before the start of the junior year, the second course must be taken during the first semester of the junior year.

Joint Major in Economics and Accounting Students majoring in accounting may also receive a major in economics by completing 30 credits in the latter. All the economics courses required for the accounting degree may be included for the concentration in economics. ECON 205 or 225, 206 or 226, and 382 must be part of the 30 credits in economics.

Fundamentals courses listed, as well as the courses listed under Social and Ethical Aspects of Business, and all must satisfy the Liberal Arts and General Education Requirements for Queens College. In addition to all general Queens College requirements, students must have completed all requirements for the appropriate major, as specified below and must have a grade-point average in their chosen major of B– (2.7) or better in courses taken for the major at Queens College. All courses required for the major must be completed with a grade of C– or better. All courses in business fundamentals, society and ethics, and concentration courses taken for the BBA must be completed with a letter grade to be counted for the major. P/NC grades will not be accepted. Choosing a Major in the BBA The BBA offers three majors: Finance, International Business, and Actuarial Studies for Business. The Finance major has two concentrations: Corporate Finance or Investments/Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA).® Requirements for each of these majors are listed in the box on the previous page. The BBA in Finance Technological changes in the workplace have dramatically changed what employers expect of new college graduates. Students wishing to pursue a career in finance must be able to answer job interview questions about capital structure, the CAPM, regression analysis, forecasting, and stock market efficiency. Finance professionals are assumed to know how to work with financial models using Excel and VBA. The BBA degree in finance will help you master the skills investment banks, commercial banks, consulting firms, and other businesses desiring financial expertise demand of their employees. Students who choose the finance major will gain an understanding of the basic concepts involved in financial decision-making.

The curriculum provides students with opportunities to practice what is taught through real-world applications based on spreadsheet modeling, forecasting, regression analysis, and firm valuation. The major prepares students for future graduate study in business, as well as equipping them to gain the business experience necessary to pursue a graduate degree. Students choose from two concentrations: the Corporate Finance Concentration or the Investments/ Chartered Financial Analyst® Concentration, the only program of its kind in New York. Students choosing the Corporate Finance Concentration take three core courses in finance, which provide them with the essential skills needed to pursue careers in finance, and then choose among a wide set of electives that range from studying options and futures markets to international finance to multinational corporations. This concentration prepares students for such positions as financial service representative or financial manager. The demands of global trade, the increase in complex financial instruments, and changing federal and state laws and regulations have caused an increase in the need for finance professionals. The Investments/ CFA® Concentration prepares students to take the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA)® examination. This concentration, which offers the opportunity to construct a career path based on the CFA® body of knowledge, should appeal to students who wish to pursue an intensive course of study focusing on investments and portfolio management. The BBA in International Business Today’s marketplace is described in global terms, and the American business community has expanded its horizons correspondingly. The BBA in International Business prepares graduates to deal effectively with the complexities of global business environments. It combines the dynamics of multinational and multicultural business environments and the challenges of managing cultural diversity with creative problem-

solving, team building, presentation skills, strategic planning, and the use of computers to solve business problems. The program provides training for careers in corporations with a global orientation, particularly multinational corporations, export-import firms, banks, transportation and logistics, and government and international agencies involved in international trade, finance, and economic development. The BBA in Actuarial Studies for Business This major prepares students for a career path in the insurance industry, as well as for a series of actuarial examinations. These examinations test an individual’s competence in probability, calculus, statistics, and other branches of mathematics. The first few examinations allow students to evaluate their potential as actuaries. The Actuarial Studies major helps them to prepare for the first of these examinations, and teaches them the skills that will be necessary to progress through the more advanced examinations. Students also gain an excellent grounding in business skills through the business fundamentals courses. COURSES ECON 100. Economics and Society. 3 hr.; 3 cr.
