Computers are an integral part of modern society; they touch all aspects of our lives. The world is quickly becoming divided between the computer-literate and the computer-illiterate, with the elite being in the literate group. For these reasons, computer competency is an important part of all curricula. The purpose of the business computing major is to respond to the needs of local businesses by preparing competent workers.
