ST. PAUL -- Hamline University announced Wednesday the launch of its new School of Business.
"We're combining our strengths in several key areas to create business programs that are mission centered and market driven, that is, undergraduate and graduate programs, aimed at educating the whole student - intellectually, emotionally, and ethically," said university president Dr. Linda N. Hanson.
The program will offer courses in business administration, nonprofit management, and public administration along with new, comprehensive undergraduate programs.
Bachelor's degrees in economics and business administration, with concentrations in finance, general business, marketing, management and international business, will be offered through the School of Business. Masters degrees will be offered in business administration, public administration and nonprofit management. The new School of Business will also offer a doctorate in public administration.
Undergraduate classes will be taught on Hamline's St. Paul campus. Graduate students can take courses in St. Paul or Minneapolis.
Hamline University is the state's first university. The private university has nearly 4,600 undergraduate and graduate students.
