The mission of the Business Department is to provide business students, in a manner consistent with the mission of the college: provide a solid foundation for careers in a private or tribal enterprise or government agencies. We see, in addition, to prepare business students to continue their education at a four-year institution in programs such as Business Administration, Business Management, Marketing, or Accounting. We seek to impart a level of knowledge and critical thinking about business concepts that will allow students to successfully learn about contemporary business issues presented in the general media.
