The principal stakeholders are (a) those who seek the benefit of education, either directly as students and alumni, or indirectly as employers, (b) members of the public and private sectors, including regional businesses and non-profit organizations in north Georgia and beyond, and (c) the academic community, both at Berry College and nationally and internationally. The Campbell School educates students through formal and informal programs, placing high priority on the education of the Head, the Heart and the Hands, and on currency of curriculum. The Campbell School’s process of continuous improvement facilitates our serving these stakeholders’ evolving needs.

Studies in Business and Economics
All entering freshmen and any transfer students who meet the Berry College admissions standards can pursue studies within any of the degree programs in business or economics. Students may declare a major in Accounting, Economics (B.A. or B.S. degree), Finance, Management, or Marketing. Alternatively, a student may take classes in the business school as a prebusinessundeclared student. This allows students the opportunity to experience some of the areas of business before declaring a major. Prebusiness-undeclared students must declare a major prior to filing for graduation. When a prebusiness-undeclared student declares a major, the student’s major requirements will be governed by the catalog in effect at the time of declaration. Additional information about the requirements for each major is available under the appropriate section of the catalog: Accounting , Economics , Finance , Management , or Marketing . Students may also elect a minor either in business or economics.
The curricula of the Campbell School of Business are built upon a foundation that represents the synergistic blending of undergraduate and graduate programs, of teaching and research, of development of technical skills, and of a broad concern for individual, social, and economic values. This solid foundation makes the school a vital and exciting place to study and work. The faculty is committed to fulfilling the Berry College mission of educating the whole person: the Head, Heart and Hands. This commitment is evident throughout our curriculum and interactions among students, faculty, staff and the business community. The Campbell School experience inspires students to work conscientiously to add value for their employers and create a better life for fellow workers. Graduates become an integral part of their business endeavors, as well as engaging in service to their community.
The undergraduate curriculum has three components: a solid foundation in the liberal arts, grounding in a common body of skills and knowledge important to the business professions, and opportunities for specialization in one of our majors. Through its curriculum, the Campbell School of Business stimulates critical thinking, helps students develop communication skills, provides a forum through which students can integrate and synthesize knowledge and fosters ethical decision making and leadership.
