Mission Statement

The primary mission of the College of Business Administration (COBA) is to provide an innovative, creative, and relevant education in business disciplines to a diverse group of students. We accomplish this mission by creating an educational environment conducive to the fullest development of an individual’s learning and scholarly potential. As a community of scholars, we are committed to excellence in teaching, research, and service to society.

Programs

The College of Business Administration offers a baccalaureate program leading to the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree with majors in accounting, computer information systems, finance, management, marketing, administrative systems, and interdisciplinary business. The College works with departments across the University in developing support fields for the interdisciplinary business degree. It cooperates with the College of Education and Fine Arts in offering a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in business with teacher certification. The College also offers a BS degree in computer information systems for specialists not seeking a business degree, a BS degree in management for those desiring a stronger concentration in the field, and a BS degree in economics. BS degrees are also available in accounting and finance. The COBA academic program is organized into the following departments:

Department of Business Systems

Department of Management, Marketing, and Administrative Systems

The Small Business Development Center is operated by the College with a special service mission to businesses and communities within the University's service area.

Transfer Policy

Community/junior college students who plan to transfer to the College of Business Administration at Tarleton are advised to take those courses recommended for the freshman/sophomore years as outlined in this section. The appropriate departmental office within COBA should be consulted to resolve questions of course transferability. Upper-division 3000/4000-level courses taught by the COBA should not be taken at a community/junior college.

Credit for business courses taken at another college or university or at a community or junior college and transferred to Tarleton to be applied to a BBA or BS degree in business will be awarded on the following bases:

1. Business courses that are equivalent to a 1000- or 2000-level course at Tarleton will be accepted if the course content is considered by COBA to be similar, with a grade of C or better and no other restrictions.

2. Business courses that are equivalent to a 3000- or 4000-level course at Tarleton will be accepted as satisfying Tarleton advanced credit only if they were taken for advanced credit. Under special circumstances some students may be allowed to petition for credit upper-division (3000-level and above) courses in the Business Core requirements by successfully completing a validating examination through either the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) or a departmental examination; however, any such testing requires prior approval of the appropriate Department Head and the Dean of the College of Business Administration. If permission is granted for credit by examination, such credit must be completed before taking any classes for which the course to be validated is a prerequisite. Validation must be accomplished during the first semester of enrollment at Tarleton.

3. Business courses that are advanced (3000- or 4000-level) at Tarleton, but are transferred in as lower-level courses, will be accepted for transfer as lower-level electives with no validation exam, provided that the course grade was at least a C.

4. The maximum hours that may be transferred from a community or junior college with validation and applied to a specific major in business (accounting, finance, CIS, management, marketing, or office administration) is limited to 9 hours. Under no circumstances may more than 68 semester hours be accepted on transfer from a two-year institution to be counted toward a degree.

The Department of Management, Marketing, and Administrative Systems offers eleven undergraduate degrees. The Department offers a BBA in Management, a BBA in Human Resources Management, a BS in Management, a BBA in Marketing, a BBA in Interdisciplinary Business, and a BBA in Administrative Systems. The Bachelor of Science degree in Administrative Systems leads to teacher certification with three options: Business Secretarial, Business Administration, and Business Composite. The Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences degree in Business Occupations is available through the Department of Management, Marketing, and Administrative Systems. Degrees offered primarily at the Tarleton center in Killeen include the BS in Business Administration, the BS in Applied Science, and the BS in Aviation. The department also supports a minor in International Studies.

These degree programs have a dual emphasis: a broad-based education in the foundation disciplines of the liberal arts and the sciences and a focused development of business knowledge. Each major has a set of required courses and electives that students may choose to enrich their own particular major. Moreover, the general business courses are designed to support the various business curricula. All departmental programs are designed to prepare students professionally and for entrance into graduate school.

At the graduate level, the department offers a MS in Management and a MS in Human Resources Management. The Department of Management, Marketing and Administrative Systems and the Department of Business Systems in cooperation offer the MBA degree. Those interested in graduate programs should consult the graduate section of this catalog.
