Breakdown of Business Administration Department Areas

The Business Administration department is organized into three "areas", each with an Area Chair who functions as a department chair for that area.

  • Accounting, Finance, and Business Analytics
  • Management, Entrepreneurship, and Special Concentration
  • Marketing, Wine Business, and Operations Management

Forms which call for the signature or approval of a department chair will be sent to the relevant Area Chair. Students wishing to contact a department chair regarding one of their courses/instructors may review the list below to see which area chair their course falls under.
