The objectives of The Luter School curriculum are business fundamentals, critical thinking, communication, and ethics. Our program is grounded in the liberal arts traditions of the University and builds on the Liberal Learning Core Curriculum taken by all CNU students. Our program is built on the premise that effective and ethical business leaders will develop a deep understanding of the cultural, social, political, economic, context in which individuals and organizations exist.
The B.S.B.A. degree has lower (freshman and sophomore)division and upper (junior and senior) division course requirements. Lower division courses are open to all students who have satisfied the required course prerequisites. Upper division courses may be taken by students who have been accepted into the Luter School. We also offer a business minor, comprised of lower and upper division courses including a field-based capstone course.
The Business Program Curriculum is organized into four areas: (1) Pre-Business Area Courses; (2) The Business Core Courses; (3) the Majors/Areas of Study; and (4) the Minor.
